Ya, you're right. When Verajao beats Kanter to the hole for 2, you can pretty much poke a stick in it, even with the entire 4th to play. Durant lacks the killer instinct, that's my observation.

The Thunder look really tired. They were pushing the ball frequently earlier in this series but since the 2nd quarter in this game they just walked it up.

I don't know, Durant looked pretty good there to get them to within 4. What I don't understand is why down 7 with 42 seconds they let Curry run to the basket with the ball. Of course he passes on the easy deuce to dribble some more and hit a tough 3. But I don't get why OKC capitulated there. Down 7 with 42 seconds is not game over.

Ugh. A lot of KD hero ball tonight. Come to DC, son. The Redskins sideline passes are waiting for you.

Shut the fuck up. I can't believe there's a worse idiot out there than Stephip A Bayless

If it goes in he has killer instinct. If it doesn't go in he doesn't have killer instinct. So fucking retarded.

That was one hell of a series.

Major choke job like the clippers last year, these guys gotta be sick of losing I wonder what's going through their heads.

They're just not clutch sadly and that won't change no matter what team they go to.

Westbrook and Durant are too similar as players. It would be better for both if one of them goes to another team.

My guess is that you'll treat us to more bland and generic posts.

Nah. Westbrook did such a good job deferring after like game one or two. Basically double digit assists every game. It's just that they reverted back to ISO ball last few minutes every time. Westbrook's defensive intensity got worse as series progressed which was a bigger problem than his assists. WB adjusted well. KD's shots just didn't go in when needed and they stopped trusting their teammates who also stopped trusting in themselves (like Andre passing up wide open threes)

Not similar. While I like them both, one is not a good decision maker, the other lacks a bit of killer instinct.

OKC had the game plan down at the half, but afterwards they started jacking 3s and ate shit. Even though they had a decent lead into the 3rd, they never looked comfortable the entire game, and OKC couldn't resist falling into their bad habits when momentum swung.

We saw a team grow these 2 series, but they still don't have the discipline.

Oh and nice paying Kanter $16m this season to play all of 9 minutes in a game 7 conference finals. The 3rd highest paid player on the team. Well spent money.
