    These bumblefucks have the longest winning streak in NBA history (5) immediately following a double digit losing streak. They can't even tank right.

    At least Dunn looks like a pretty legit piece moving forward and we should get some pretty good trade value out of Mirotic and/or Portis as far as draft picks.

    It appears as if I gave up on the Thunder too soon. They are starting to figure it out. They've played some really good basketball the past few weeks. They've compiled something like a 12-3 record this month with some solid wins over the likes of the Rockets, Raptors, Pacers, and T-Wolves mixed in there.

    The biggest difference is Westbrook has stopped trying to defer as much. He's playing like he's the best player on the team and making the new players adjust to his style. A few NBA analysts/former players like Barkley, Steve Smith, and Greg Anthony have mentioned that Russ needs to play that way. They pointed out how the Heat had the same issues when Lebron came on board in 2010. Lebron deferred too much until the team finally came to the conclusion that Lebron, being the best player of the group, needed to be the team leader that everyone else plays off of.

    I'm really hoping this isn't just a one month flash. I want to see someone in the West actually push the Warriors to 6 or 7 games.

    If anybody is pushing the Warriors it'll be a healthy San Antonio or Houston, OKC can soften them up a bit with a tough 2nd round series though assuming they're the 4 seed.

    Westbrook/George is a really good tandem to go up against the Warriors with, and Adams is a nice physical rim-runner who can play tough interior defense, but at the end of the day Charmin Anthony will be what holds you back from beating a team like that.

    I agree in a 7 game series the Warriors probably win in 6.

    But I do think OKC has better athletes on the perimeter to disrupt the Warriors offense than the Rockets. Between Westbrook, George, and Roberson OKC can switch effortlessly to keep someone in the pockets of the Warriors' shooters at all times.
