Green Target - Serge Ibaka

After the Thunder fell to the Golden State Warriors, there was a brief moment of hope for Celtics fans, where optimism and fandom out shined logic. A battle between the head and the heart that had most fans saying "Probably not, but maybe..." But with time, most Celtics fans have probably came to the same conclusion this morning: Kevin Durant isn't coming to Boston. We're always...

Game 7 Analysis: Thunder fight, but eventually quelled by Warriors, 88-96

We just couldn't stop switching.... In the most pressure packed Thunder game in franchise history, Oklahoma City fell short to Golden State, 88-96. It was a battle from beginning to end, with the Thunder holding a 6 point advantage at the half. But an awful third quarter had the Thunder heading into the fourth with a 11 point deficit. That third quarter had a lot of gut-wrenching...

Warriors, Thunder taking turns beating each other in the opposite style

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to win Game 5. At least, that's what it felt like for most of the night - not against that team in that situation in that arena. Though for one long moment, as a Kevin Durant 3-pointer hung in the air with 35 seconds remaining, nobody managed a breath. For a moment, the impossible seemed suddenly plausible. But the ball caromed off the...

The Warriors need emotional and tactical solutions

The Golden State Warriors have a challenge in their Game 5 showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder that is unique in scope. They have two huge problems that need to be solved independently of each other, meaning that solving just one won’t be enough. The Warriors, as it turns out, had an Achilles Heel. For those who have either forgotten their Greek mythology or never bothered...

Western Conference Finals Observations Game 3: A Thunderous Massacre

Historically, Game 3s are very important. A lot of series see momentum rampage toward a specific team following the all and pivotal Game 3. But this is not a normal series.

WATCH: Steph Curry Knows His 3-Pointer is Good, Stares Down Serge Ibaka Instead of Watching It

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry doesn't need to watch the ball fall through the hoop when he shoots a 3-pointer. He's that good of a shooter, and he continued to prove it Wednesday night during the Warriors' 118-91 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. In the third quarter, Curry hit a 3-pointer to help the Warriors finish...

Stephen Curry stares down Serge Ibaka before shot goes in

Two-time MVP winner Stephen Curry is a savage, and his troll game is strong. He’s been known to celebrate shots before they go in, and he can talk trash like the best of them. During Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, he tried something similar on a three-point attempt. Curry, who was being guarded by Serge Ibaka on the play, used a great shot fake to get the big guy in...

Oklahoma City's Long, Arduous Shooting Guard Search

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to replace James Harden. Even the sunniest post-trade optimists-who pretzeled themselves to argue that the franchise was better suited keeping Serge Ibaka and using Harden to bring in some depth-dispensed with that hope as soon as the hirsute guard dropped 82 points in his first two games with the Rockets. In hindsight, we now know that...

WATCH: Russell Westbrook throws great alley-oop to Serge Ibaka

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook can do it all. He can drive the lane, make a great pass, pull up for a jumper or throw down a sick dunk. If the threat of Westbrook scoring the ball is too much for opposing teams, and they focus on taking either him or Kevin Durant away, he’ll just hook up his teammates. That’s what happened in Friday’s game against the Bulls...
