Game three of five for OKC in Vegas. James Harden was awesome Tuesday night against the Lakers, as were Kyle Weaver’s defensive skills. Tonight, for the love of Congo, snap out of it Serge Ibaka and play like you did in Orlando. I was really fired up about the thought of Ibaka being good enough to not only make the roster, but also maybe seeing some meaningful playing time. But he just hasn’t played well thus far in Vegas.
Who do the Spurs got?
A couple guys to watch tonight for the Spurs: George Hill is easily their best player, but DeJuan Blair is who I’m most interested to see play. It was surprising to see him slip into the second round, and I always like to see how guys do that we passed on. Malik Hairston is a quality scorer and James Gist was a good college player at Maryland and a decent player overseas. The Spurs also have Jack McClinton, a guy that can light the gym on fire if he gets going.
Also, Kevin Durant has said he’s going to be in the house tonight, so these guys better turn it up a notch for KD. You don’t want to let down The Durantula.
