one of the least impressive 50 point games I've ever seen. It was basically one of those vintage Kobe chuckfest type games.

13/31 FGA's and only 1 assist? :cry:

foh with that ***


too many free throws, Nba's lover boy

he was clutch tho i'll give him that. But i dont think the mavs should be that hard to beat but oh well


Mavs had just won 4 straight.


still don't consider them to be good. I just don't. I feel like how the Thunder is built they should blow them out every game but the mavs are always hard for them, weird

You can't expect great teams to blow out everybody they are clearly better than. Just doesn't happen in a long 82 game season. Thunder are still what, 31-8? they are beating these type of teams more than we are.

i dont expect them to blow everyone out but i dont get why just historically speaking they always have problems with the mavs, i think its something to do with their defense and the mavs just knowing how to keep games with okc competitive idk

like i said, the mavs arent good and when they took the heat to overtime i was annoyed too. i just dont think the mavs are good this year (and last) but thats my opinion.

btw as a heat fan, im not even scared of OKC. not sure why but i feel like we have a grasp on how to beat them and should always beat them in a series. But maybe i'm naive...

anyway, on paper the thunder look like a matchup nightmare for the mavs and somehow the games just play out differently

Unimpressive 50 point game...it's almost an oxymoron. He may have not been efficient but he hit two huge shots to seal the game for them.

I'm more impressed that he shot 100% from the FT line at 21-21.

Green text? I've never seen anyone claim that.

But yeah, that was a Kobe-esque performance. Except for the clutch shots. :lol:

Damn that was such a great game.


I know VC always plays some of his best ball against OKC, but clearly we can see that the man still has a lot of game left.

He may not be the better player (certainly not the better all-around player), but he doesn't deserve to be called a chucker as well. He's having a significantly more efficient season at 24 years of age in terms of scoring compared to LeBron's season when he was the same age.

Impressive game by Durant.

Jordan never fully understood basketball. He had the lowest basketball IQ of any NBA "superstar" in history.

KD for this one game:

TS% = 64.61%
eFG% = 50%
USG% = 36.68%

Shot poorly from the field but made up for it in made free throws and three pointers.

not sure how we are comparing age now? Durant is a better shooter so he can score easier (jump shots) but Durant also didn't have to develop the way lebron did. DUrant's team >>>>>>> Lebrons Cavs and its not even close. Durant could manage to lay low all game, let Westbrook do whatever and just score when needed. He can chill, lebron could never chill. He can't even chill now.

Lebron's pressure to be engaged at all times in every game is nothing Durant will ever have the pressure of doing, he can pick his shots however he pleases. You give a great shooter a team where his next best teammate can outplay him on any given night and he won't be efficient?

Westbrook is the main difference between the 2 teams. Outside of him Lebrons Cavs supporting cast was better than the Thunder. Both strong defensive teams that very bad offensively without their star.

Yeah like who...OKC still has Ibaka and Martin as major contributors...and who exactly do you mean was better on the Cavs supporting cast (Drew Gooden, Larry Huges, Zydrunas Illgauskas, Jamario Moon,.....). I mean you could argue with Varajao and Mo Willimas but they are not better than Ibaka and Martin....

Mo Williams is and was better tham Martin IMO. Ibaka would be ever worse offensive than Andy without Thunder 2 main stars. Hes assisted on 93% of his field goal makes............defensively Andys better IMO Ibaka is overrated defender because of shotblocking.

Mo > Martin
Andy > Ibaka
Delonte > Thabo
Big Z > Collison
past prime Big Ben > Perkins

IMO. But Westbrook is a superstar in this league hes amazing and makes the difference overall. Top 3 Pg.

First I assume you are trolling. If you are not I can guarantee you are the only person on this board who thinks this...

Mo > Martin
Andy > Ibaka
Delonte > Thabo
Big Z > Collison
past prime Big Ben > Perkins

...is accurate. PEACE
