Hopefully I'm not imagining this but still don't want us sleeping on the Thunder. Paul should see multiple defenders from Rubio to Payne to Carter to Mikal if necessary. Don't need anyone stupid like Muscala going off on us either. Dort, Bazley and Ferguson can get it going too. No trap games, build a lead and crush them early, rest our guys for Philly tomorrow.

The Thunder know how Ayton plays when you defend him with Crowder/Olynyk. They’re gonna take it a step further and put CP3/Schroeder on him.

Sort been having a decent restart and I'm sure he would try to be a nuisance on D against Book
Bazley had a nice game in the last one but yea to say they gonna be thin today is an understatement so just be professional and take care of biz

Thunder repaying is for the turd they left on the court against Memphis. I wouldn’t mind an easy one where we go up 25 and coast through the 2nd half. Let Booker/Rubio get some rest and be ready to go tomorrow against Philly.

Gotta go hard to start though. CP3 still out there, he can carve us up.

We "should" win this game. One key sign that a team is maturing is that they don't play down to their competition in a game like this. Any team with CP3 is still a threat and must be taken seriously.

I hate CP3 too much to fall for this. He always will find a way to annoy me and the Suns, just like the Spurs. Trap game. Finish them off early, rest for tomorrow.

We saw what happens when teams are missing good players. We needed 20 points from Saucy's second favorite player Javon Carter to beat the Heat. We need to show up ready to play today.

Even a half-man performance is probably good for 20-12 and maybe couple blocks. :lol:

This. Although, I'm sure you'll agree with me that we'd feel a whole lot better if Oubre was playing.

Just know that it’s my birthday, so you can’t get too mad at me if we lose, haha. JK, I’ll take my punishment fair and square.

OK, well in that case, it was meant to be! Happy BDay, Split! With this new intel, I'm now totally relaxed about today's game. We're cruising to an easy win for your birthday. <no jinx>
