    Is there a more fun team to watch play than the Oklahoma City Thunder? They are pure passion on a basketball court. It was true again Wednesday night as this game had everything a basketball fan (especially an Oklahoma City one) could want — a come from behind win (they were down 9 at the…

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    It seems easy, right? You win three games, you’ve proven you’re the better team, you’ve shown you can win on their floor, you’ve totally and completely demoralized them and all you have to do is do it once more and the series is through. But it never is, as the Oklahoma City Thunder found out…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Well, that was fun while it lasted. It was nice to think Thunder-Nuggets was going to be an all-out clash of the titans. With thunder and lightning and demons and sorcery and the whole shebang. Instead, we get the Thunder, out-executing the Nuggets when it matters and where it matters in every game and a team…

    So this should go over well in Denver. Let’s start with the controversy. Here’s the final play in Denver in the Thunder’s win over the Nuggets. You decide. Did Harden get him on the arm? Did he go straight up? That’s about as close as it gets. Nothing will change the result, however. Thunder win,…

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    They are frustrated in Denver. They have not been able to solve the Oklahoma City Thunder puzzle and are now down 2-0 in their first round playoff series. J.R. Smith’s frustration boiled over Thursday, to the point he says he may choose not to re-sign with the Nuggets this summer, he told Benjamin Hochman at…

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Russell Westbrook slowed down some in Game 2 against Denver, he only had 21 points. Still he was a pretty big part of the Thunder going up 2-0 in their first-round series and the Nuggets still do not have a real good option for slowing him down. Especially when he can pretty much spin and…

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    The Denver Nuggets are a really good team. In the classic sense of team. They play good team defense. They move the ball on offense. They are well coached. They play hard. They play smart. And all that does not stop a Kevin Durant or a Russell Westbrook. Three times in the last month the…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Phoenix Suns

    When was the last time you heard a player call out his own coach’s playoff defensive strategy? Meet Kenyon Martin. He watched Kevin Durant drop 41 on the Nuggets in Game 1 of the playoffs, hitting 13-of-22 shots and just dropping it in from everywhere on the court (he was 6-of-10 from the midrange and…

  9. NBA admits officials blew it, but that won’t help Denver now

    George Karl

    One day after a Kendrick Perkins tip in ended up being a key part of Oklahoma City’s win over Denver, the league has admitted the referees blew it. Never should have counted. I’m sure that makes George Karl feel so much better. You can see the video here, but let us set the stage: The…

    With just 10 days of NBA games remaining, some first round playoff matchups are pretty much set. Out West, the Oklahoma City Thunder are almost certainly getting the Denver Nuggets in the first round. Sunday Denver beat the Lakers by outworking them, being more scrappy, playing good defense and moving the ball on offense (95-90…
