In this episode, we not only take a look behind enemy lines, but we venture off of the SB Nation. Our sister site over at Welcome To Loud City just does not have a Game Thread. So, we look to the Daily Thunder. Now, I’ll be honest, this one was tough to stomach. Therefore, I only looked at the first half of the game. Not to mention, the post count was quickly approaching the 3,000 mark when I left. So, honestly, I don’t think I could have kept up any longer.
Like all sites, it had its ebbs and flow. I noticed Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins (along with their coach) caught a lot of grief. One poster seemed so worried about the Spurs, it was borderline a phobia. There was some healthy respect for our Spurs. However, I will say that once the game tilted in their favor, the ... wit flowed freely. All comments can be viewed here.
anyone else a little nervous?
Old Man Game
Kick this team's butts out the building. I've had enough of the San Antonio Spurs.
5 4 MVP
Which scrub goes off on us tonight?
Julius F Wrek
Lebron is the best KD defender because he gets Superstar calls on everyone else
F! this team's three point defense. Garbage. Brooks never adjusts... FIRE BROOKS
You depresses me.
Spurs are just too damn good. Not gonna match that offense starting two scrubs
Watch the Spurs on defense. They get away with so much illegal defense. They're always in the paint.
If we played the Spurs every game, Reggie gets the MVP
Kawhi has taken KD out the game, Please get Duncan in foul trouble, I don't want to see him cook our players anymore
Timmy is wily
wish i could hang out with pop
The Spurs are defending KD really well, doubling him every time he drives and Kawhi has the length to bother KD
Reggie looks at the Spurs bench, winks and blows a kiss.
If we played the Spurs in the Finals, Reggie would get Finals MVP
Reggie the Spur killer in to save us.
Kawhi dominating KD
Did Lebron train Kawhi?
I love Leonard, he went to my alma mater. I was devastated when the Pacers traded him to the Spurs! Out of all the teams at the time, that was the worst.
Maybe if we cut Kwahi's hair he'll lose his defensive abilities Sampson. Thoughts?
Who wins in a wet t-shirt contest, Boris Diaw or Nazr?
"rumbles into the lane" accurate.
Danny green checking reggie.... they respect the spur killer
The foul call was so bad, I thought it was a loose ball foul called on Collison's guy, then we got free throws.
newish to hardcore fandom
Pop is the best.
Fish s probably still give Spurs fans nightmares
I need to move to San Antonio, something is in their water. Mills is a bum, goes to San Antonio, then magically he is awesome.
Its called Pop's coaching I believe
If Pop coached the Thunder we would challenge the Bulls 72-10 record.
We stand no chance against this team in the WCF. No chance. We don't have the coaching, leadership, or veteran presence to deal with them.
Patty Mills is Reggie Jacksoning us tonight.
I hate Danny Green, he is my least favorite NBA player!
KD is kinda good.
we should keep him
THANK YOU REFS, How much did Brooks pay you off?
5 4 MVP
LOL YES WE GET OUR POSSESSION BACK! AND A KAWHI FOUL!
seriously brooks. GET ADAMS IN THE F'ING GAME YOU MORON
This over-reliance on Butler and Fisher is not making me feel good about the playoffs...
Spurs can't handle our fastbreak
We're only down 3? #blessed
Yuck some Lebron interview for the half in here. "You know.....crap.....I'm the best....bla blah blah.....you know......i'm d wade's brother blablablah....you know.....yeah....you know.....i could be an astronaut if i wanted to you know.....Tvaddic
Royce said that every time we play the Spurs they stop Westbrook or Durant and the other one picks up the slack.
That seems to remain true tonight:
Russ 6/12 KD 4/13
Since as it's days before the playoffs and we're still fighting for top seed, if we lose tonight this place is gonna explode.
only 11 assists and 10 3pta for San Antonio, good defense on a explosive offense but Russ needs to stop complaining about calls and get back in transition. The offense needs to get better in the 2nd half, run some more Russ-KD PnR and let KD handle the ball more in the 2nd half
should have been a T on Perk
Crazy stat: Roberson is shooting 100% from 3 in his last 5 games
The rest is pretty much a Thunder celebration. Feel free to read it all, I couldn't.
