The Spurs are still 16/17 from 3. That's fucking outrageous. Like I said, I can't believe the discipline they have to not be firing up shots from deep just because they all think they are on fire.

Win or lose, the one thing I’m seeing is that some of these OKC role players are ready to play. It’s been a struggle filling out those roles, but if Ferguson and Grant can continue to produce on offense while also working hard on defense; OKC might have found the right complimentary pieces for Westbrook/George/Adams.

And Nerlens. Before he went down he wasn't getting a ton of minutes but he is having a brilliant defensive season.

I don't think that hits the rim. I think it hits the padding on the bottom of the backboard, which deadened it and made it go straight down.

Why isn't that 1 shot and the ball?
There was like a 0.3 second window when the ball was in bounds but not yet being shot by George. Either the foul started before the inbounds, in which case it's a shot and the ball, or it happened after the ball was being shot, in which case it's 3 points and a shot. And somehow the officials rule it happened in that 0.3 seconds taken to gather for the shot.

officiating really made that last OT herky-jerky and feel a little unfair to OKC.

Oh and Harden has a triple double through three quarters versus the Cavs. 43 points on 12-24 shooting (8-16 from deep), 10 boards and 12 dimes. The Rockets are winning by 32 so he is probably done for the evening.

And Austin Rivers continues to be a useful player for them in the absence of Paul and Gordon.

My god, Luka is so f***ing good
Seriously. How many 19 year olds are the go-to scorer for their squad and convert on the crunch time shots like he did tonight? 29 points, 12 dimes and 8 boards and he essentially had the game winning shot. The guy is amazing.

Btw, this was a great game - Dallas won 119-115 but the TWolves came back towards the end and made it a close game.

Cavs are an absolute disgrace though so Harden’s stats look better than it would against a better team. It was too easy today.
I dont care if he is playing a G League team. Putting up a 43 point triple double through three quarters is damn impressive. He is singlehandedly carrying the team but you know this.

Time for someone to find another clip. Donovan Mitchell just put Javale McGee on a poster. Outrageous dunk.

Edit: I found it on the Jazz twitter page, let's see if this works: The replay from under the hoop makes this look so much better, but I can't find that view.
