Action, Action please, no 20-point-ahead wins, make it close, fast and exciting like the last couple of games. Make it 3-0 against Houston.
Expecting to out-rebound them and block Scola.

Im watching the Jazz v Rockets on League Pass right now. Cant decide who to pull for. I despise Houston and they are closer to us in the standings, but the Jazz have any tiebreaker that may come up between them and us, so we need to have them pushed down as far as possible, right???

Just cant decide who to pull for. Either way, I hope they have to play 4 overtimes and wear the Rockets out.

Im just not looking for the Grizz to be able to beat Houston 3 times in a row. KMart went scoreless last time against us. Dont think that will happen again tomorrow. Heck, he went out and dropped 32 on the Thunder the night after we beat them.

I agree go right at Scola or Patrick Patterson.

Also If Tony Allens stops Kevin Martin like he did last time they have no shot.

If TA shuts KMart out again, you are right, they wont have much of a shot. BUT that is going to be hard to do on Houston's home court. Martin should be extra motivated tomorrow night against us and TA

Same here. I don't know who to pull for; quadruple overtime would be nice though.

well Houston whipped them in the end. Oh well. But the Lakers are getting destroyed by the Suns by 25 in the 3rd. Would love for the Lakers to get another one in the Loss column.

If we lose tomorrow, most likely we will just swap positions with Houston as we now have identical records (18-14). Denver is right behind us both, but they are playing at OKC tonight. They are winning at the moment, but we all know KDurant isnt going to allow Denver to hold on. So we will still be at least in 7th place after tomorrow's game no matter what.

I hope OKC loses every single one of their remaining games. I hate that team.

If we can limit Thabeet, I think we have a chance.

Dallas and Utah both lost, but Minny and Houston got the win. OKC has to win today. Phoenix looks like they got the Lakers under control. We could possibly finish 4th in the standings by the all-star break if we do a good job.

Now if that were possible, I would love that. I would love for them to finish something like 26-40, however if that happened, they would get a great draft position and get Anthony Davis from Kentucky and be even better next year. Those guys can fall in a pile of dung and come out smelling like roses.

Phoenix is breaking a foot off in the colon of the Lakers, which makes me feel less bad about our loss to them, and will have us 1/2 game closer to them in 38 seconds, tied with them after we beat the Rockets tomorow night!

We need KD to go ahead and get this one for us because we need Denver to keep losing or its a three way tie for 6th.

That layup he just hit was too easy. Can they play defense??

Yep, Phoenix is going to win so that gives the Lakers 13 losses.

Saw where big greg monroe and the Pistons whipped the aging Celts. Cant believe they bout ran us out of their arena when we were in Boston.

OKC has the ball with 7 secs and they are down by 2. I wonder who, pray tell, will get the last shot for OKC?? Hmmmmm, maybe Sefolosha?? no, Cook?? no. who could it be?? Here we go.....

To bad Josh davis is gone I think he was the only one out there that can stop such an explosive player like thabeet.

I can honestly say there is no player I despise more than James Harden and that is saying a lot because there is Kevin Martin. But for some reason i cant even look at his punk arse without just hatin on him. Dont know why I had to say that but Im watchin OKC and just had to vent.

Im sure its fun to be an OKC fan right about now. Just wonder what would happen if Westbrook, as he fell to the ground, rolled up on one of KDurant's skinny little legs and twisted one of those bony knees and he had to miss say 35 games or so.

Ibaka triple-double, Westbrook with 40, Durant with 50. Amazing win by OKC. I also saw Westbrook steal OJ's signature move after he hit a 3.
