I have nothing to say about this game. The most interesting thing about it is that it’s a matinee, something it would seem the team is trying out for Sunday home games. Obviously the key here is more about the Thunder focusing on their own play, rather than the opponent.
Because barring them taking their routine afternoon nap instead of playing basketball, the result seems in hand. So it’s about building on the good things that happened against the Kings on Friday and making sure that Reggie Williams gets a little playing time tonight.
Most likely, if things go as they should, the most dramatic thing about today’s game will be KD’s 25-point streak. I’ve kind of got a bad feeling about it.
Three Big Things
1. Don’t lose to the Jazz.
2. Don’t lose to the Jazz.
3. Don’t lose to the Jazz.
Tip at 2 CT. Go Afternoon.
