Maybe. The pacers sure gave them a beat down though.

Lebron just has no help, this is absolutely not a championship calibre team anymore.

If the Pacers keep LeBron out of the paint (that means double/triple-teaming him) then game 7 will be decided from the perimeter (LeBron's 3-point-shooting and his teammates).

Cool, that's a much better angle which shows no foul.

My bad, Westbrook did congratulate his victors especially Mitchell after the game was over. I only saw the part where he almost got into it with that one Utah fan.

Anyways I was amazed at his shot selection, he took 43 shots last night.

The Thunder Were The Ugliest Version Of Themselves In Game 6

Westbrook took a whopping 43 shots in 44 minutes in Game 6, including 29 shots in the second half alone. 43 shots is a huge number: this was only the 14th time in NBA history when a player has attempted at least 40 shots in a playoff game, and only the second time since 2001, and both of those belong to Russ. It’s an eye-popping stat, and one that certainly won’t discourage the “Russ is a damn ball hog” crowd

I remember when Jordan attempted 43 shots in triple-OT loss to Phoenix in Game 3 of 1993 NBA Finals.

Why do people even like Westbrook? Seriously, the guy has fire but it's brought down by very low basketball IQ, immaturity, and inefficiency. 46 points on 43 shot attempts...let that sink in. Brick made it personal between him and Rubio after Ricardo had a naturally occurring triple double against him. Needless to say, Brick was so into stopping Rubio that it took himself out of playing team defense. Again, I don't understand the love people have with the guy. Mitchell easily outplayed Brick in this series.

As soon as I saw the play, I knew that wasn't a foul. A fitting end to the Thunder's season. I absolutely hate that play by shooters, and I hate it even more when they look around to the ref like, "Where's the foul?" It is a bullsh!t call, and it always has been.

Moreover, I hate that these guys put up such garbage shots when they try to pull this. You should be concerned about hitting the shot, not, "Hey, Ref, please bail me out, on my attempt to get bailed out". If you were more concerned about hitting the shot, and you happened to get (legitimately) fouled, the results would probably be better.

Anyhow, I just laughed when I saw the play, because I knew OKC was done, the play was a nice capsule to their season, and I wont have to watch their pathetic brand of basketball anymore.

Dont get me wrong, I wanted the Thunder to do well, but as I have said before, they are so brutal to watch. No ball movement, iffy, sometimes-y defense. It was frustrating to watch. I could not take it anymore.

They really should have lost Game 5, but PG13 and Russ got hot which masked the fact that they played like garbage for nearly 3 full quarters. I knew they would lose Game 6 because they would go back to their horrible ways.

OKC and Houston would have been entertaining, OKC played well against them in the regular season. Utah wasn't as good against Houston in the regular season, but these are the playoffs so we'll see.

By the way, I don't think the Warriors need Stephen Curry anytime soon the way they've been playing so far against New Orleans.

The Sixers/Celtics would be so much more entertaining with Irving and Heyward.

The Warriors went small against AD and it looks like it worked so far.

Despite going to game 7 the Bucks have a long way to go before they'll win a playoff series. I watched all 7 games & sure they were fun to watch at home but they didn't stand a chance at Boston. Undisciplined. You could have spotted them 15 points at the start of the game & Boston still would have won game 7.

I wonder what the future holds for Jabari & Giannis & how content they'll be in Milwaukee.
