Here’s the big story of this game: Win it. Don’t lose it. Win it. Don’t mess around, don’t have excuses, don’t play bad. Just win the stupid game so you can get on with the postseason in the No. 2 seed where you’re supposed to be.
Another key to think about, and this is just an idea: Maybe put Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in bubble wrap or something, you know, just to be sure.
Three Big Things
