What else do the Thunder need? They got two superstars on their roster, but can only muster a six seed and a first round exit. As much as I hate to say it, George would've been better off in Los Angeles.

I think they just need to blow up everything that's not Russ/PG/Adams/TFerg and try to get some shooters who'd better compliment Russ' game. Why they didn't go after Wayne Ellington and Wesley Matthews this year is beyond me.

Shooters, they need them, especially since Westbrook forces a double almost every possession that almost means there is always someone open to shoot an easy 3. It’s just now they got nobody who can hit them consistently other than George but they’ll never come off him on defense.

Embiid is really great for basketball and I'm glad he's in the Eastern conference and he loves playing Philadelphia. It's good for basketball.

 

That said, I hope Toronto rocks them in round 2. I'll never be happy until Philly fans say "you know, Elton Brand is probably a better GM than Sam Hinkie. Also, Hinkie blows." In those exact words.

 

@dfwabel What are you hearing about the Lakers GM search? Simmons and Rusillo said Bob Myers is an option but that seems unlikely to me.

Well at least something went right tonight. Go Raps. Kick the Sixers in the teeth.

The obvious has passed in the Eastern Conference. This is where it gets fun; Any of these teams can get to the Finals.

Brooklyn just broke 50 with 4 min left in the third I’ve seen teams almost score fifty in the first. Not only is Philly playing well, but Brooklyn is playing especially bad, like NC State 24 final Score bad

No kidding. The idea of an upset was fun, but the top four were always getting through.

 

I'm excited for Boston/Milwaukee. I could see the Celtics getting swept, just as much as I could see a seven-game series.

And that’s it.

 

I’m just glad we were here. This was great big-game experience for the kids, and overall a bit of a wake-up call to our weaknesses. This was an incredible season. We truly exceeded even the most optimistic of expectations. Of course I’m disappointed, but this is hopefully not the last the NBA will see of the Orlando Magic.

 

We’ll be back.

I'm pretty sure Damian Lillard is the most likeable player in the league. Missed the game tonight, but that endibt is incredible.

 

Better luck next franchise, OKC. I'm rooting for the Blazers out west now. Fingers crossed for a Houston/Portland WCF.

I think I played through that scenario in my driveway a thousand times as a kid.  To see it achieved with an almost indifferent air, landing swish at 0.0, 50 points clean, 37 feet away, series winner at home.  

 

Thats dream-quality stuff right there.

Ok so I missed the Thunder Blazers game tonight. 

 

Oh :censored:. 

 

What? How? That’s amazing.

For all the crap OKC was talking in this series (especially Westbrook), they got quieted pretty quickly. Of course, Dame going off for 50 and finishing them off with a shot from freaking Hillsboro can do that.

 

Now, for the best part: rest. Denver and San Antonio are fighting it out and that helps the Blazers.

That's absolutely tremendous from Lillard. Step-back three from Gresham to win the dang series. Ice cold. And couldn't be better from a narrative perspective; everyone likes Lillard / the plucky Blazers over the miserable Thunder / avenging their Cascadian siblings all these years later. And, again, the shot itself is transcendent.
