Whats going on again? Libsk are you a local? good grief anyway, I had a friend predict the Thabo adjustment and go for the win/under. I think Pop presents the biggest issue for the Thunder. Obviously, OKC is way more talented and fun to watch compared to the Spurs, IMO. Looking forward to a great series and I wonder what adjustments Pop will make for game 4. Love Brooks, but Pop could take the Thunder and win half a dozen titles...

There are no adjustments to be made since Thabo is such a lockdown defender who will be in the HOF. It's a shame Thabo wasn't around to play defense on Jordan in the 90's. The man is just that good, I don't think it's anything POP can do because Thabo is so long which will cause problems for Parker the rest of the series. If OKC makes the Finals maybe he should defend Wade since he is so good defensively

All I saw were Tattoos and hands flying all over the place last night! Im a big fan of Thabos game and been watching him develop, but lets see him do it again and I will believe it. This was his best game ever and as a true fan I feel he needs to do it a few more times to have that type of honor. Pop will figure it out. And if not then fantastic! The Heat are toast regardless.

You never heard anyone in any real media say Thabo was or is in any way shape or form a HOF worthy prospect. He would get eaten alive by MJ, and will likely get eaten alive by Parker/Manu tomorrow.

I hope the Thunder can tie it 2-2, the Spurs are thus far the best in the NBA.

Both series should go 6-7 games.

I think the Thunder are much more battle tested than they are given credit for. In fact, outside of the Spur's big three I would say the Thunder have more playoff experience from top to bottom.
