    I won't underestimate the Thunder ever again after they rebounded that well following the opening loss to SA.

    Seeing how even in game 6 GSW was pushed to the brink, it is safe to say that this series is far from being decided.
    Can't wait for game 7 to start.

    It'll be a tough fought game either way. No way OKC just rolls over.

    Dubs really need to rebound. Giving up way too many second/third chance points.

    OKC is doing it right so far. Work inside, slow the pace. GS is having a run, but if they can avoid the rubber legs late in the 4th, they have a realistic shot.

    It is usually the case in my experience that in the final game of the series even though the previous games predict a close battle in fact one team falls apart.

    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.

    Fuck yes!!! Duuuuuuubs!!!!!!!!!!!


    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.

    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.
