Ideally, you want to steal the ball here- so put some ball pressure. Otherwise, you must get the rebound.

This is heartbreaking. Once again we have to mount a comeback. Every freaking game. It's absurd.

That's game. Can't believe no one boxed out Chuckbrook there.

Westbrook shoved Collison out of the way, no call.

Not impressed in the least. Yet another pointless too-little-too-late comeback to make the score look better. Then the team still won't change anything about their approach and keep trying to make every game into a comeback.

His free throw shooting has been around his averages lol. He shot over 86% last month.

No Westbrook shoved Collison for the rebound. Should have been a foul on WB.

Our inability to grab crucial boards is going to be our Achilles heel.

Oh well it was nice to see us come back and make a game of it, we had our chances, seriously fundamentals let us down, ball protection and freethrows

Paul had a layup, they should have just taken it

It is over. I am proud of the effort. Proves that we are a playoff team that will be a threat.

And that's all she wrote. Thought CP could have gone for the layup there, but OKC sniffed out the play for Redick.

3rd seed here we come, lets rest our starters for the rest of the season

we can't match them... we had to get the 3... there was no other way.

I think Jamal and Granger could have been +5-6 in this game before OKC started shooting FT's, and that's a win, so this was an okay game in the end

I'm very worried how unprepared we seemed.

We're 2.5 games up, once we officially clinch 3rd seed then i say **** the NBA and rest our starters

The way I see it.. .they had their full team.... we were missing our 3rd leading scorer

And let them get rusty? No way. This team seems to need a rhythm.

Durant was 8/26 for 27 points, you won't get that too often though. He was averaging 34/5/9 against is before this game on 49.3 FG / 35.3 3PT.

There is only thing to "worry" about -- injuries. Since there were no injuries tonight, as far as I am concerned, Clippers win! Plus, we showed we can turn it on when needed. Playoff time, this would have been a W.

That's a bad idea, especially since they haven't even had many games together all season. Reduce their minutes, but benching them for the rest of the season is not really a good choice.

So no one finds it troubling the pattern of needing an epic comeback every game?

I still think that westbrook putback was offensive interference

Our main problem is we start off not into the game and lack energy. The playoffs will be teeming with energy so I'm not too worried.

Oh well. We made a good run at the end. If we had just turned it over our normal amount, we would've won. Not to mention we missed some big FTs.

No it was not offensive interference.

I got to say though, he shoved DC out of the way on his second OFF Reb. DC had box him out.

...three point shooting, not forcing TOs, letting Raphael go for 30!!! That is a no no, especially with Durant struggling. Redick disappointing, no Jamal and Danny G.

Yet, I will take this L. See you in second round Serge.

3 1/2 games up on houston... plus we have tie breaker.. we can lose 4 str8 right? and still get 3rd seed.

Collison is the steal of the league and props to Reggie for having a sneaky good game. He didn't jack up everything he saw, he worried Durant and he passed well. His numbers don't tell the story, but the rook did his job tonight.

Gary Payton spitting knowledge. Kind of feel disgusted by the loss they were on a back to back but Westbrook did have fresh legs. This really shows this team does not take long rest well. What the hell happen to the pick and roll aggression Doc has been very passive all around. Doc was suppose to come in as a defensive coach and he seems to just be okay with us outscoring people.
