    That was a 50/50 call.

    Apparently the last one was as well.

    The Thunder can blame themselves for the hole they dug in the first half.

    That's what happens when your team is known for being the biggest floppers in the NBA, you get some and you don't.

    I'm not blaming the refs for the outcome of the game, however they need to be more consistent. Miami played a hell of a game and, I'll even admit that bank shot by James was clutch. OKC needs to stop getting off on a slow start. If it wasn't for that 18-2 start OCK would have probably won. Westbrook needs to make better decisions and shoot better.

    No one would argue that. I think they need 4 refs, one at each corner, that way there is a lot less guessing or at least more consistency. Remember game 1 on fast break layup (don't recall the player) but the called a foul on Chalmers and replay showed he never and I mean NEVER touched the guy., just flew by with his hand up...

    No complaints by me for more consistent refs in all sports. Its the human factor, but with these bigger, faster, stronger athletes its harder and harder on the refs. My problem is when they have direct sight and are inconsistent or playing favorites, which does happen. Most games, like these finals so far, i cant say one team is getting more or better calls than the other, both have had bad calls and missed calls. thats all i can really ask for.

    Most def shoot better but if you look at the stats he only had 2 turnovers. I look at bad shots as turnovers. Even when he got in the paint and was doubled or tripled team he should of kicked the ball out to an open player for a 3 or 20 footer

    Re: NBA playoffs

    I used to go to the Bullets games all the time when they were here
    but lost contact with the NBA after they moved.

    I was just watching the game at the water hole.

    Can someone explain to me how Oklahoma City gets a pro basketball
    team and we don't. Yea, DC is next to us but Oklahoma City a major
    league town? Come one man.

    Can someone give me some history here.

    When did they get a team.

    BTW, like I said it's been a while but today's pro basketball
    players look like NFL line backers and tight ends or WRs like
    Randy Moss - big and fast.

    Those old Bullets were tall but skinny-lol.

    The conditioning of today's pros in all sports is just superior to
    the old days. I saw an old pic of Brooks Robinson swinging from
    1960 and was shocked. He looked like a midget.

    Today's 3rd basemen are like TEs.

    I was at work but caught the last 2 minutes of the game. Lebron shot a brick within the final minute to give the thunder a chance but Durant never touched the ball the last 2 minutes...

    And how about that blocking call on Harden at the end to put the game out of reach with lebrons 2 free throws (bricked the first one, suprise!, but made the second...)

    In regards to your question about how OKC got a team. They were formerly the Seattle Supersonics before their owner had a falling out with Seattle legislature and relocated the team to OKC in 2008.

    Not if Battier still had on a Duke uniform. He would get that call every time.

    Re: NBA playoffs

    I still thought there were too many bad calls on both teams but I guess that's just the way it is. Good game quality and a lot of defense (if you like that). Great series

    Kevin Durant vs Lebron was kind of refreshing to watch.

    its something we just have to accept sadly. Same with the NFL, although i would say there are some teams in the NFL that definitely always get the benefit of the Refs. The NBA is inconsistent but usually both ways at least.

    Im not sure how the "haters" felt but Lebron definitely took over in the 4th, imo. 8pts 4 rebs 50%FG and shut down KD who was obviously frustrated (2 of 6, and some missed FT). Durant did take a shot or two under 2 minutes, it just didnt seem like it because he was taken out of the game defensively. James seemed to be a part of every play, even when he didnt have a statistic on the play. You wont hear much about that today though, itll be more about the thunder and/or wade than lebron taking over. Its a better story to keep that fallacy going.

    overall the game was great and the series thus far.
