    The Facts as I See Them
    This is going to be a tough game. The OKC Thunder are an elite team that went to the NBA Finals. They are good at every position. Our strongest position is obviously point guard, but they have a decent point guard of their own. The key will be limiting turnovers, getting defensive stops, and Dion having another good game to open the floor up for others so that Kyrie isn't triple teamed and the offense becomes suffocated. Easier Said then Done. With Zeller out (at time of this) with his concussion, our options that were limited are even more limited, as he can run the floor and add some punch to the second unit or with the starters. Our bench has been a real black hole lately, and injuries won't help.

    Oh boy... this is the next game?

    Can the Browns play an impromptu Sunday night game? :chuckles:

    Didn't we beat OKC last year?

    Not too optimistic we pull it off again.

    Any word on waiters? I can't find anything regarding his status, I'm guessing game time decision.

    Westbrook is going to torch Kyrie. Hopefully Kyrie is feeling better and can cancel it out offensively. Waiters may struggle against Thabo. Going to be tough to even keep this a close game imo.

    Like you guys, I don't feel good about it at all. I'd be content with keeping it competitive for a half.

    Well, with Gee trying to guard KD, and their bench vs. ours, we're gonna need a crazy good shooting night (>50% minimum) to make this a game. We'll probably get torched by KD and Kevin Martin tonight.

    We destroyed them last year with Hollins goddamn it. We will be fine. And they had Harden still.

    According to the PD (and confirmed by Ben):

    Tyler Zeller is not playing tonight in OKC.

    Damn, I really wanted to see young fella get back out there. He was looking so promising in that Clippers game.

    If we weren't so banged up I would be betting money on this game for the Cavaliers to win. Alonzo Gee completely took Kevin Durant out of his element last year. I also think us blowing that 30+ point lead in Phoenix has our guys pissed off.

    Frank is predicting that the Cavaliers win tonight in OKC to avenge their loss in Phoenix. I think the real blowout comes on Tuesday vs the Brooklyn Nets, it's our last game of the long trip and we don't match up with them very well. Joe Johnson is a 6-8 two guard, Waiters will struggle, Kyrie will have to check Deron and they have guys like Marshon Brooks coming off the bench.

    The Cavs, offensively, are actually a decent fit for OKC. The pick and roll should work well on them and hopefully dribble penetration will cause Ibaka to get in foul trouble.

    But as someone mentioned, Westbrook is going to go off. Would like to see Waiters on him, Kyrie on SG and Gee on KD.

    This is said before every single game. The only game that has been ugly so far is the Chicago game.

    Exactly. And I didn't say it before the Bulls game. Get with the program young blood.
