And sometimes the beautiful game of basketball looks like this.

The less said about this past game, the better.  You would like to think that with a day off to rest up after their marathon win against the Nets, the Thunder would have had a bit more energy, but they had neither energy nor desire.  Final statistics don’t even matter that much, although it was nice to see Harden get some good minutes and production.

The game was lost in the mid-third, when it became clear that the Thunder really didn’t have any intention of playing defense.  It transformed a seven point halftime lead to a nine point deficit.

What I didn’t like:

  • No defensive intensity
  • No real care for how the game turned out, including the coach
  • Complete inability to stop another big man

We have another high scoring team in the Warriors in the house tonight.  Get the head on straight.
