big win for okc! happy to see that melo turned it around after playing a horrible HORRIBLE first half. then he was shooting 4/6 in the fourth quarter, playing d and ended up with 8 boards with zero turnovers (very important, taking into account that PG/Russ already had 15 combined). overall still not a very good game from him but he contributed to the victory in the 4th, which is all the matters right now!

Adams was a monster down low once again for them and Roberson playing really well latetly.

seems like they have turned the corner now. let's see how the next games go.

He ended up going 4-5 down the stretch to help close it. But he was awful most of the game.

Good to see Russ be Russ.

PG can’t be tentative at all. These other two are happy to take all the shots :lol:

They desperately need bench help. A backup C and a 3&D wing. Let’s see what Presti could do with the 15th around the corner. They got some contracts they can use. Abrines / Singler etc.

it was good to see the 3 of them wake up in the 4th. encouraging signs. especially to come back from being down 17 points

but yeah their bench is god awful. looks like felton fell back to earth and grant is the decent one there. wtf happened to patterson though? he's been trash all season


yep they have to adress that very soon. if one or two starters go down, they are shot.

After the Jazz were kicking their tail, OKC Thunder had a pep rally in the locker room. We have live footage!

As I've said many times, there are too many horrible to mediocre teams in the NBA for the OK-C-Thunder to limp into the playoffs but I do enjoy the fact that Westbrook is like, "Naw, none of you are shooting as much as I am." To be fair, since he's become stingy the Thunder have started winning some games. I expect in the off-season, Russ will ask for Joakim Noah and 3 clones of Steve Adams + Kanter.

If he didn't shoot so poorly, he wouldn't have a chance to be clutch in the 4th

:lol: Right. That brings me to my next question. Was he 1-10 FGs going into the 4th quarter?

He could of shot well and the team still could need him to be clutch.

How could he have shot well when he ended up 5-16 FGs and he got hot in the 4th?

That's still Melo's fault. His stench is affecting the other players on the team.

If westbrook didn't get hot in that 3rd quarter, jazz would have won. Roberson, PG and adams defense was huge too. They don't need melo. They lose when he scores 20 or more lol

Jazz also was missing couple of guys and rudy just came back from an injury and they again barely won at home.
