Damn, OKC is sooooo good late game. You can't foul them because they have 3 great FT shooters, and they're always in the game because of Durant's ability to score at will. What a headache for the opposition.

I agree. They are a very good at shooting free throws especially at the end of the game.

i still think Dallas can take both at home if they can do that it becomes a series again.

This is where FT matter.

Definitely.

OKC has barely won both of these games. The two games they're supposed to win.

Series is far from over. It's been a great one so far regardless.

Durant has shot terribly in this series so far.

Doesn't matter, refs are bailing him out putting him on the line like crazy.

yo.

Missed the last part of the game because I had to get food - how did the Thunder end up pulling this one out?

Watching this series has made me fear OKC less.

Fear their ability to go to the free throw line like crazy. That's always been a legitimate fear. If it weren't for that, they'd be [expletive].

Doesn't matter - OKC could suddenly get hot and win a game in Dallas. If they do, it's over.

Dallas isn't a very good home team per say, but I can definitely see them winning both of them at home because of how they played in these first two games. If they do that, who knows maybe the thunder will lose some confidence

The only one to fear is Harden about 85% of his shots are attacking the basket. Russel and Durant put too much stock in their jumpers even when they are not going in. I'm not sure if i saw Perkins take a swing at Dirk or not but Dallas should send it in for review.

Dallas choked these 2 games away. Had the lead with a minute left in both games. Hope they win both at home so it's a series again.

I can see Dallas coming back in this series. But, you have to credit OKC for playing well down the stretch for 2 games in a row now. They couldn't do that when they faltered to end the regular season.

Dallas choking helped out a lot too. We would be saying the opposite about the Thunder's ability to close games if Dallas had made one of those shots down the stretch

So? Alternatively they could also get cold and lose the games in Dallas.

What's your point?

True. But OKC was really bad on the 7-7 stretch they had to end the season, so it's a big improvement on that.

I can't believe how many baskets Dallas missed though.

im not impressed by okc at all to be honest, and durant under-perfoming in the playoffs again against a physical defender marion

if this dallas team still had tyson on defense and barea (to penetrate and make up for all these jumpshots) okc probably lose this series

i think lakers can handle okc if bynum and pau play like they have lately, need ron back asap though <_<
