What a complete joke choke job by the Raptors. Horrible play. Only thing that might cause a stumble is Westbrook being out.
No Stumble Will Happen! They play their best basketball without Westbrook. Its forces....

I think this is only true for the regular season. In playoffs, the opponents will only for focus on 1 specific team for 2 weeks. Westbrook diverts a lot of attention away from Durant during the playoffs. He is very much needed for the Thunder.

Wow that didn't look good last night. He had to be helped off the floor, same bad knee. Bad news for OKC. Hope he's all right but if not, it's got to make us favorites to reach the western conference finals against spurs.

How well did Durant do without WB in the playoffs against the Griz? He struggled a lot.

I am talking stumble in the regular season. I do not think they will stumble in the regular season , but as far as the playoffs its a different story. Teams can trap Durant to....

Blake and DJ struggle against the Grizz last year. Maybe the Grizz match up better against KD. Just like the Spurs have an easier time game planning for LBJ versus Durant.

Don't think so. KD puts up great numbers against the Griz in RS. 30+ ppg on near 50% shooting. In the 2011 playoffs he also put up great numbers. The difference is having more offensive threats like Harden and WB on his team. No WB and no Harden=big problems since the Griz can focus on keeping the ball out of Durant's hands and can double him constantly.

Saying that the Mavs can beat the Thunder without WB is very very optimistic. The Mavs are not good enough defensively to pull it off. Its a long shot. Even with WB the Thunder are a good defensive team once they get Sef and Perkins back.

Well what if that is the Grizz? Then the Grizz beat OKC and Grizz and Clippers meet in Second Round

Nice one Coach, but comes playoff time, coaches adjust their game to their opponent, hopefully your prediction againts warrior is right, looking forward to see this match up although in my eyes we will be facing 80% Portland and would be 20% Mavs, which we might sweep in 4 games, I'm still excited.

That Is possible. The Griz did the same thing last season and they are arguably better this season when healthy.

portland is losing bad, they might just fall to six. Hope gsw moves to fifth or 7th and mavs take 5th.

Spurs are resting Duncan and Ginobli tonight and they're still beating GSW. Thanks a lot Warriors. You're about to lose a game that the Spurs weren't even trying to win.

It is safe to say that the spurs won't lose another regular season game. Time to focus on second seed.

WoW! Warriors 1.5 games back of Portland for 5th and Suns 1 game back of Memphis for 8th! The West will be interesting.

I know this doesn't really have anything to do with our playoff picture, but wow, what a choke by Kevin Love last night. Pretty padded stats in the box score as usual but a bunch of bricks and turnovers down the stretch. He is overrated.

Let's hope Charlotte can do to Houston what they did to Portland. 5-8 in the West is a mess... we could literally see any of those teams in round 1.

I think the Clippers will be just fine with whoever they play as long as Thunder stay in 2nd and Clips in 3rd

Memphis, Phoenix and Dallas are almost identical right now. Will be a exciting run up to the PO's. Who will lose out? I hope Memphis do.

Portland has officially reach "Goldie locks" status. We want them to lose but not as much as they bump memphis to sixth. We play them on the last game of the season, what if that game has implications: if we beat them we face memphis if we lose to them we face them? Oh boy.

DJ can guard Dirk. Blake can guard Dalembert or Wright. They are both Ryan Hollins type. Tall and Long , but weak.

I think we have Dallas's Number as well as Portland and Houstons

Mavs win. We must take care of business. Losing one game on this road trip will be a big loss but that is all we could afford

Not true, every team loses to inferior teams. We losing to them doesn't make us any less good. We are talking about a random game in March not a seven game series. To good as in we face them next and they are looking hot and they are at home and we have struggled the last two games at home.

This is cause for concern and could be a perfect storm for us to lose on thursday. This has nothing to do with us not being as good as we thought.

AT LAST OKC lost coming from a back to back game...and i doubt we'll win against dallas in their home court coming from a back to back..

I think it's better for us to stay in 3rd place.

I want to avoid Memphis. Not BC they give us a challenge, but BC they always injure our guys.

I rather play Warriors or Portland in the first round

We're so close to that second seed. Spurs really.got to take a sudden nose dive for the Clips to go number 1.

tie breakers for references purposes:

San Antonio over clippers, not OKC.

OKC over San antonio, not clippers.

Clippers over houston,Portland, and OKC (currently 2-1 and a game lead on conference record) not san antonio.

houston over portland, Golden state not okc and Clippers.

Portland over NO ONE, clippers,houston,memphis and dallas have tie breaker over them. Currently Golden state and phoenix sit at 2-1 against them with one game to play. Conference records also favor Golden state and phoenix so if it comes down to a tie breaker that means these two teams gained games on them so for all intents and purposes golden state and phoenix will have tie breakers over them similar to clippers having tie breaker over OKC.

Golden state warriors over Portland not houston. Tie breaker with Memphis and Dallas up for grabs with one matchup left with each also up for grabs with phoenix currently tied 2-2 with conference record being the next tie breaker.

memphis over portland and phoenix not dallas, up for grabs against Golden state.

dallas over portland, memphis up for grabs with golden state and phoenix with one match up left each.

phoenix over portland not memphis up for grabs with dallas and golden state.

will update 3 way as they become more realistic and pertinent.
