 The NBA is a tough league , most of the players are monsters . Steven handled the situation properly, as did his team , and it ignited a run . The Thunder are for real fellas .

Makes it 2 all by my reckoning.

Warrior's unbeaten run is struggling a bit I feel. :grin:

Steven's sister is getting back on form in the shotput too. Just heaved her best for the year after having reconstruction surgery on her shoulder.

Valerie is his sister?? I hadn't realised that. She was on the news tonight biffing a shot a humungous distance.  The whole family must be huge! 

Here she is, about to 'put' one.



If that wahine [wah-hee-nee,] had been in the audience there might have been some 'instant karma' coming Blue 23s way!

 2 games to 1 , advantage Thunder .

 Seems she was well known before Steven .                                                                                                        What we may be witnessing is the unraveling of a team that the experts had handed the title to before the games were played . No one counted on OKC being completely healthy .

The Thunder are for real. What I like about the Warriors game (or any team playing their style ball) is the quick ball movement, finding the open man for a 3 or the open man cutting to the hoop. I haven't enjoyed watching the NBA for a long time. It became a WWE event.... pass to a big, dribble once, move to the hoop.... foul. Free throws. Same thing on the other end. Same thing again on the same end. Then back again. What's exciting about watching guys shoot free throws.

The quickness and lack of whistles is what I like to see.
I'd much rather ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.

 Demar , I agree , in most ways the game is more fun now . The rule change re hand checking has changed the game , and flopping is much less common now . I mean come on , a 6'8" 260 lb mass of muscle and bones gets sent flying by a tap from another players back side ??? One rule I would like to see changed , when a defensive player goes straight up , and the offensive player jumps into him should NOT be a foul . Still , I do kind of miss watching big men like Olajuwon , or Bill Russell patrol the paint .

Good points Dusty. I absolutely *HATE* James Harden's game... flop, flop, and fuc**ng flop. He plays his game to get to the line. That is as important, probably more important, to him than any other aspect of his game.

It will be interesting to see if Durant stays with the Thunder if they beat the Warriors.

 Rumors have been circulating for years that Durant will leave OKC for the Wizards (close to his hometown of Baltimore) , the Heat (for the endorsement deals) , the Lakers or Knicks for the same reason , I will bet a quarter that as long as the Thunder remain in the hunt and his buddy Westbrook stays KD will remain in OKC . His low key demeanor and gentlemanly personality fit really well in Oklahoma , he is hugely popular here .

I wouldn't be surprised if KD heads home to the Wizards and tries to build a team around him. 

He might stay here if we stay contenders. 

Westbrook could go back to LA to win and gain endorsements.  Again, if we stay contenders....

Whatever they do, it will likely happens when their respective contracts are up regardless of whether they've won a title here.

 72 - 53 OKC at halftime . It isn't over , but the Warriors seem over matched . When 7' Steven Adams can guard Curry on the perimeter GS is in trouble . All a bit surprising , but very fun  :thumb:

 118-94 OKC . Steven A had 4 offensive rebounds , 11 points . Durant and Westbrook were brilliant , as was the whole team . One more win in three games and finals here we come . Amazing  :bow:

 Actually Western finals , but yes , the Thunder are at home tonight and only need to win one . \

 23- 20 OKC end of first . Wake Johnr up so we can all celebrate together  :laugh:

 Something no one has mentioned , the Warriors starting center is an Ozzie , just another reason for the Kiwis to get excited  :grin:
