    Just wanted to say I thought tonight was an easy OKC bet -points

    Granted they played the knicks and the K’s Best player had a really good game + OKC poor rebounding, I thought they did well tonight

    Fieat and foremost, it’s up to Westbrook to feed the egos of Melo and George, and at least tonight he got them their shots.

    Im really excited about this team this year, can’t wait til they match up against the elite in the west

    Tonight was a throw away, Knicks are awful

    Will be interesting to see how they stack up against houston since both teams are top heavy and lack quality depth

    Okc has a better overall team but the big question will be chemistry and if melo feels like playing

    Would've been nice if they could've kept sabonis's kid but they got one of Horace grant's 3 offspring

    OKC -4.5 and over 199

    OKC playing Utah tonight and I just don’t see where Utah has an advantage. I really like Gobert but OKCs style should neutralize him on D as OKC is a jump shooting team and a fast break team, and Gobert can’t get back quick enough

    Rubio can’t play with any of the OKC guards

    Should be another 10+ point win tonight for OKC, 110-95

    Does bread and butter mean it's a good play?

    I'll be honest, I don't think I've ever seen one win.

    Maybe I misunderstood the meaning.

    What a weird game by the Thunder and especially Russ

    None of the 3 players had a great game as they all looked like they're still trying to figure out how they're going to make this work

    Russ was hesitant shooting and opted to just rebound and tally assists, Anthony and George didn't hesitate to shoot at all.

    It was only one game so it's hard to take too much away from it. Maybe they were trying new things, maybe they're not that good right now, maybe an off night, who knows but time will tell. I still love this team and will either make a lot of money or lose a lot of money on them.

    With that said, I think last night showed me that if OKC is going to be great and compete with the likes of SAS, HOU AND GS, Russ has to be the leader he was last year. The team has to let him be him and figure out how to play with his style instead of him adopting to their styles.

    So to stick to my guns, I've got OKC -4

    But who knows how OKC is going to play, are they going to come out and try to get a win or are they going to go out to work on schemes and rotations? If they go out to win, they can win by a lot.

    I will say this, OKC has ALWAYS struggled against teams with good guards, more so than other elite teams. They've always been prone to the 3. I'm curious if George will change this equation as him and Russ should be able to lock down most teams but we'll see. I'll be watching to see how well Minnys guards do today. I expect KAT to have a good game.

    OKC -4, primarily action, gonna be a great game. I like both of these teams this year and it should be fun

    Ya, I don't think one has ever won

    It's quite the phenomenon

    It's why I was giving Jake the heads up to either stay away or buy back

    Russ needs to be the leader today, have a big game, let George and Anthony play off of him

    George needs to be a lockdown defender

    OKC rolls if that happens

    I am watching this game closely, Billy has a tough job ahead of him to make this work.

    They have good options on offense but Melo's ISO game stalls the game too much. Gotta run and gun with russ leading them for this to work

    They are letting opponents shoot 55% fg, 40%3s.

    Play some D and they'll be fine

    Man they're not very good right now, just too much iso ball and it doesn't have to be with Russ at point. He could easily drive and kick with this team. Fast breaks should take be there all game like the first game of the year, granted it was the knicks.

    Cheers my man

    Russ is MVP and had the best season ever last year

    Guy is best in the league, he needs to act like it again this year, George and Anthony will fall into line and be the beneficiaries of his aggressiveness.

    Maybe so, this team is such an unknown right now. I took a flyer on hoping they'd be good up front against a pretty weak schedule but turns out they're not. If they ever find their niche, they're gonna go deep, if not they'll flame out early and it will be an ugly season with a lot of in-fighting

    I'm putting another unit on them next game

    With that said, they've started out better in the 4q

    None of the stars on this current roster has ever won or even remotely competed as the man on their respective teams

    Westbrook superior athlete and superior moron IQ wise. That's not even debatable. West coast teams were drooling at getting okc in the first round last yr. He's the doorknob when the games count, everyone wants a turn

    Melo was always a cancer after leaving denver where Billups and iverson covered up for him

    Pg13 had 1 good yr on a stacked pacers squad that couldn't beat lebron with the zebras on their side

    Bunch of individual regular season stat stuffers on .500 win teams or worse. None of these clowns comparable to kawhi let alone lebron or durant
