I didn't watch the US broadcast, but I would think JVG loves Siakam. Lol

Yup. And hates replays. And not running back in transition. But loves Siakam. And Raptors.

OKC hit so many extremely tough shots. And of course Westbrook had maybe his best shooting night of the season. And they played with some desperation in that 4th quarter. I was pretty sleepy and didn’t even think about it until after, but did the Thunder throw some zone in there to take Toronto out of their rhythm?

Nice that Kawhi responded well in ot after taking a backseat through the second half.

We're lucky they were 15-29 from the free throw line too. If they shoot even 60-70% from the line we lose this game.

And they were lucky that Westbrook went 5 from 10 from 3, instead of his usual 2 for 10, and we were lucky that george fouled out, and they were lucky that brothers tried his best to get them a win, and we we're lucky siakam had a great night :)

Fact is, we thoroughly outplayed them all game long. With normal refs, they don't even get 29 FTs.

I'm not saying we didn't outplay them, OKC was awful and I thought our energy and ball movement was fabulous. Fun game, and we dominated OT which was satisfying.

They were not awful. They lack shooting and mostly grind out wins. George has battling shoulder injuries lately and impacts them a lot but I think last night that was mostly offset by Westbrook shooting lights out.

Our ball movement was great yesterday, we're literally improving from game to game. Each game, there are longer and longer stretches where the offense is very fluid.

It sucks that we never seem to be able to play like that late in games, but perhaps it's just the way the league is. When it's tight, a lot of the pretty stuff gets replaced by isolation ball.

That was a great 3 quarters last night and I was really impressed with how they played in OT after blowing the lead. A game like that will help them down the road.
