Would be such a Thunder thing to win against a team competing with Miami for a seed in the East.

No Tatum is a problem. Boston looks terrible.

That sucks...guess the dream about Minny and/or Detroit finishing higher than us is over. Gonna be really close against the Cavs..I'm worried about some of our games against good teams that may rest players.

A month ago I would have paid to end up with a bottom 5 record so if we can keep this, that's fine.

Not a big fan of Ty Jerome but he can shoot so no reason to get rid of him.

Maledon/Poku struggling a bit lately :(

Not sure about Bazley...he's playing better but he makes a lot of dumb mistakes. His ceiling remains pretty high though

They weren't going to lose out, and there's probably not a game left on the schedule that causes more funny overreactions by them winning than this one.

I mean, I was sort of tongue in cheek with my comment but you got to admit it would be pretty **** if we missed the 4th or 5th pick because Jason Tatum didn't play a game in late April.

Oh that wasn't directed at you haha. Was kind of thinking that before the game, and honestly didn't mind this win just for the entertainment value afterward. We've seen the last 15-ish games and they'll be plenty of losses left. Looks like Minnesota is still trying to win and I think of all the bottom teams OKCs schedule might be the toughest.

Boston shot 20% from three and played like ****. Tatum would have made the difference but that Boston squad should beat us 90% of the time. Most of the teams we will face will rest some key players so we better get used to it :(

Btw do we get the tiebreaker against the Cavs?

Wolves should go 5-5 and we can't win more than a game, looks unlikely (even if I think Minny is doing better and they will try to win)

Gotta hope Cleveland beats Orlando tomorrow because they lost to a lot of bad teams lately and they don't have many easy games left.

Tbh between how bad they've been and flattened lottery odds, I've stopped worrying so much. That and there really wasn't much of a shot that they would just lose like 30 games to end the season.

Figured they'd randomly get hot some game or something, but given circumstances this might just be a bit funnier. :D

Lotto ties are decided by coin flip.
Only head to head and division records etc are use for playoff teams ( for home advantage)
