I SO want OkC to win this, and still think they will. But boneheaded comments like that are unwarranted.

He did say it but I don't think he meant to say or how it came out, he just learned English a few years ago. Not to be Captain obvious but if OKC loses tonight, they might as well hang it up.

You are right about if they lose tonight. I like the start they are having.

OKC is playing too fast right now and using up too much energy

Agreed. I think the best thing that happened for them was Miami caught up before the half was over. Now they have a chance to regroup and pace themselves until the end of the game.

I don't why coaches don't say this to their team when they have a big lead

"Listen, we are going to slow down right now because since we have a big lead there is no need to rush. So no quick shots right now we wanna get good shots and use of as much of the shot clock as possible"



Did scott brooks say this at all?

I would take the approach to keep the heat on - but sub in more players. Obviously the pace worked for them. Miami looked uncomfortable, winded and missed free throws. In a more traditional game - Miami has the edge.

Well OKC became WINDED because they played so fast and now will be down 3-1 in the series. And they won't have anything left for Game 5 because of how well they started Game 4 and still lost the game.


Congrats Miami
