We didnt defend well against the three, but we have to look at it in this light. We took the Thunder to over time in Oklahoma. In a seven game series they dont beat us with playing Durant 46 minutes a game. Paul had a horrile shooting game, and this needs to be addressed we cant have that anymore (this isnt the first game his shooting has been off). Also, I loved Matt at the 3, but we clearly missed Butlers shooting at times. I still believe that in a seven game series this is ours.

Both Griffin and Paul had SHITTY nights, like you said Griffin should stop being so unselfish, he had a shot from the ft line and didn't even look at the rim, he should've had 30 points tonight with all the looks he hesitated! Paul will bounce back I know HE knows he played like sht!

CP3 shoulda been benched. He looked like garbage and singlehandedly destroyed us tonight. On offense and defense, such a frustrating game. Absolutely no offensive cohesion tonight

Even though they made it to the finals last year? lol I don't think they're as good as they were last year w/o Harden though, so I agree to an extent.

But damn, on a positive note I was very impressed with DJ down the stretch! Along w/ VDN I know DJ is one of most polarizing guys on Clips, but it was nice to see him play well down the stretch! Especially with the up-and-under move that fouled out Ibaka. I thought that was going to be a turning point..

Heartbreaking lost, just because it was so close. I'm not gonna lie, Paul was responsible for this lost. Why couldn't he give it to Crawford and let him shoot? Crawford is our best shot creator. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for Chris. Oh well it was thunder after all so not a bad game

This game show us that we still have a lot of work in defensive rotation especially defending the three and open looks. Also the offense was stagant for quite a while in overtime. VDN need another plays beside pick and roll to free some players and other players being active beside staying there. Overall it was good hard fought battle. Better luck next time.

Is anyone else still thinking about our possession in the final seconds of the 4th with a chance to win? I still think we could've done better. Like a Crawford open shot. As soon as Paul missed his shot, it felt like we had lost the game there.

OKC earned it period. Our players played like trash, didn't get stops and CP3 and Griffin vanished in the 4th outside of the free throws Griffin hit. Sure some calls were bad but it was on their home floor so nothing out of the ordinary.

CP with the last possession of regulation was ridiculous. 20 seconds left and all he can get was a turnaround fadeaway desperation shot.

VDN should have called a timeout and setup a better play. All we needed was a point. Couldn't a pick and roll and drive and kick would have been better?

Two small forwards short - playing a team with a dominant SF - with an off performance by our superstar floor general, and we take the W/C champs to O/T on their own floor. Going 1-1 on the road against SAS and OKC, I'll live with. We sent the message that we never give up.

Even if you're optimistic enough to think that we'd only lose 5 games this year, this one would likely be on the list. Good fight, Clips.

Biggest flaw on this team that needs to be addressed is we foul way too much.

Durant made 7 field goals but ended up with 35 points. We bail out jump shooters way too much.

Games like these is where you develop trust in your teammates , especially on a night when Chris just doesn't have it. Crawford should have taken the game winning shot. Great game overall but sucks to lose when you have the last possession with an opportunity to win.

i find it funny when okc is given incredibly biased reffing for 3 quarters and then all of a sudden the refs actually try to call the game fair in the 4th. wow. anyway, we had that game, but cp3 kept f*****g up. i am upset at his big ego getting in the way of him playing to win at times. i say this because he gets into personal matches with the opposing pg at times. like tonight. he tried to take a tough fadeaway jumper to win the game instead of driving into westbrook and possibly passing to ebled or crawford. he needs to be more humble and realize hes a great player when he uses his brain and doesnt let his ego get in the way. it was clear he didnt have his "A" game tonight and yet he insisted on being the man down the stretch. im not that upset at the loss, at least our guys fought back through all the bs call we got. just one loss, its on to brooklyn to start another win streak.

I'm still pissed because it was so winnable. I'm the type where I'd rather lose by 10 than 1-2 points. Both teams played bad, we had multiple chances to take a lead and win and choked. Why is CP3 dribbling out the clock and trying to blow by a much more athletic, good defensive player instead of pulling up with 5 feet of space from 3?

Tough loss, but it's another one that I think will ultimately make us better. CP3 will learn from this and won't have the same kind if problems next time we face OKC. Time to put it behind us and get ready for the Nets.

I just remember that the next two times we play the Thunder will be at home. We will no doubt have a more dominant performance by CP3 and probably have Mr. Big Shot back. I am pretty impressed by how hard the team fought against the Thunder tonight with such a sub-par showing from CP3.

Come playoff time I like our chances with a hopefully healthy Lamar Odom, Grant Hill, and Billups.
