Livestream I usually talk about football are usually streaming games, the football gangs.
But today I want to talk about the Oklahoma City thunder and kind of switch from football to basketball today.
Um, the Thunder currently rank seventh in the West, and they are currently on a five game winning streak.
They play Philadelphia tonight, and I'll also be streaming that live as well, kind of talk about the game and the things that they could improve on and do better with against winning teams.
Um, Philadelphia is currently struggling right now with a four game losing streak from the Thunder.
Have been playing very well.
They're not in one in their last 10 games.
Billy Donovan, also one, coached a month for the month of December for them going 11 and four.
I'm There's some key things are really, really, really want to talk about when it comes to the Oakland City thunder.
And the main thing is, a lot of people don't knowthis unless you actually watch upon City Thunder play, is it? They have three players at all average over 18 again, and if they can get those three players and the place that I'm talking about our S t a, um, Chris Paul and then a shrewder Jana Schroeder has been playing very, very, very well as of late, and he's actually probably the reason why the Thunder have been on this five game winning streak.
Um, he's been playing phenomenal off the *****.
Also, Nader has been playing very wealthy Big Truman as well for the games that I've watched.
I'm I haven't been for watching very many Oklahoma City Thunder games this year, but I'm going to start watching more games out of football.
I'm gonna transition into basketball season a bit more because you know we have the playoffs on the weekend.
So I'm gonna try to preview every Thunder game and also stream the Thunder games as well to kind of give you my feedback on what the Thunder are doing this season.
We're almost at the All Star break.
We have about six more weeks and we'll be at the All Star break, so that's gonna give you a pretty good idea of what kind of team they are by the time all star break hits.
If you guys have anything you want me to talk about when he comes to Oklahoma City Thunder just let me know And I will be watching all the games from here on.
Gonna do the national championship in college will bomb that Airstream.
That and also talk about that as well.
And I would I'm gonna also preview thunder games and talk about those.
And then I'm gonna also stream the playoff games as well.
So those were some of the things I'm doing.
But I just came on here to just kind of talk about what they done to have done and what I've been impressed with and what I think they can approve upon from the gangs that I have watched.
Um, I am trying to go see them play the Houston Rockets on the ninth.
They have really tough back to back with Houston and the Lakers at home.
But the game they play tonight against Philadelphia, I think will be a really good day.
Thank you for joining the live Angels, Angela.
I appreciate it.
I think it would be a really good game tonight.
Like I said, fillies on a four game losing streak.
Jolan be shared his frustrations on social media as well as with the press about their four game losing streak.
The game gets the Rockets.
They did not look very good at all.
They tend to play very well at home, although they've lost a couple of home.
It has a couple of rough games and the thunder is coming off a good win against the Cavaliers team.
That's just not playing well.
I have a lot of young pieces, but I did not expect for the thunder to be this good.
I didn't think they were gonna be 20th 20 and 15 through 35 games.
Honestly, I thought they would probably be and the 10th or 11th spot in the West.
I didn't expect them to be eight and a half and 1/2 games out of the first place spot, which is the Lakers, which I think the Lakers will stay there.
I don't see the Lakers really losing that spot and number one in the West, um, the Thunder have played pretty good.
The Western Conference there 14 and 11 and Western coffers, although they're three and four Northwest Division behind Utah.
And doubtless I believe I've just been in your time Denver.
I'm sorry, Utah and Denver are the two teams at the top of the Northwest Division for the Thunder.
The door First division has really been up and down these past couple of years.
You know you have Utah that's been there.
You know, Denver has been there and in the thunder as well.
The thunder should.
I wouldn't be surprised if the thunder, either staying the seven seed in the West, will even moved up to 16.
The ways of the way they're playing right now s yea has really, really played very well.
I think that his fresh air with the Clippers and him being in the playoffs has really bolted well for him, um, giving him the confidence to be that that starter and that point guards at the Thunder needed They got a lot of draft picks in the tray with Russell Westbrook in and Paul George and he's he's played very well.
Surprisingly well, honestly, I do not think that he will lead the thunder and scoring this year, and Chris Paul has been planned well as well, being the leader of the team and just given them that veteran in the locker room, he has the playoff experience and things like that.
Didn't Schroeder didn't? Schroeder is a guy that I really liked in Atlanta, but they want to move on from him and let Jeff Teague make it.
Jeff Teague's team.
I'd really like to insure in Atlanta.
I really thought that Atlanta gave up on him kind of quickly, and he got traded to Oklahoma City.
And he's become just that closer, really Him, Chris Policy and the fourth I like that line up in the fourth quarter.
Let's see if they use that same line up here against Philly.
If the game is close, which I expected to be closed because Billy's coming off of frustrating loss against Houston, I expect the game to be close because it is in Philly.
Um, I really like Regina Schroeder has bought to the Oklahoma City thunder this year.
S D A. Has taken that next step up.
A lot of players really don't take that next step up, but s yea has really, really taking that next step up.
It has really been what the thunder, um, needs him to be in order for them to be successful.
I think all playoff teams need to have a guy come off the bench and get at least get you 15 16 points again.
And right now, do the shoulder is doing that for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Um, like I said before, they have three players that are almost average and 20 and that's really, really good for a team that's looking to make a push in the playoffs or at least get to the playoffs.
All you have to do is get to the playoffs.
Anything can happen over a seven game series as long as that matchup suits you.
Well, now, right now, they're matched up.
That would be matched up against den for the two on the seven Sea.
There will be matched up against Denver in Denver.
I was in the same division, so they know Denver very well.
They played in for ah lot because they're in the same division.
So if the standings were still the same by the time playoffs come around, I think I would give the thunder a shot in the Denver series because they see them so much.
Then you know, I know basketball player.
Best ball slows down in the playoffs but I really give the thunder a really good chance.
It's a kind of upset.
I would call it a upset, cause a lot of people think highly of Denver, and a lot of people didn't think the thunder would be in the seven seed after 35 games, which I didn't and I'm I live in a Palm City, so they've been playing well.
The defense has been playing very well.
I wasn't a big fan of the Billy Donovan higher at first.
I was like, Wow, Billy Donovan it.
Billy Donovan is actually starting to come on and starting to wear on me.
Thank you for joining the live active into her.
I appreciate it.
Billy dollars in to me gives him a different type of mentality because they were in the month of November.
There was six and seven and, ah, he came in in December and I think he tweaks some of the lineup.
He started playing later, a little bit more.
I've started getting shorter, living more involved in the offense, even though I think the second unit often should run through the shoulder.
I mean, that makes no sense for it not to want you, then a shoulder because he is your 20 leagues scores.
I want to see Galan, Ari.
I like to see Gallanar get touches early to kind of get a struggling a little early because him and Chris Paul played together with the Clippers, and I think they have a very good report together.
I would like to see Steven Adams is playing better when Steven Adams plays good.
The Thunder play well, very well.
He's been playing very well as a lake.
He wasn't getting involved with the offense a little bit more that pick and roll with Chris Paul.
I don't think anybody can stop it honestly, because Steven Adams is so massive and Chris polishes his point guard.
R Q issues his bath lock.
You periods through the charts, so I think they have a really good pick and roll combination with Steven Adams S E. A.
His shot is looking a lot better a lot smoother in your to your one.
You kind of trying to feel your way through.
But you're too, is when you really try to make that leap and solidify yourself.
Okay, I can be a starting point guard in the NBA.
I can't do the things I need to do in order for our team to be successful.
And I think with him and Chris Paul playing together, Chris Paul is teaching him how to be the custom, it pro and how to be that After that, people need, um, also, I also like the way they're it.
Their defense is playing, Um, the defense plays very well.
Chris Paul courses won the league leaders in steals Part gang, Um, and also they have three players that have least one still per game, So that is their votes.
The length the SDA presents on defense, along with his quickness and his athleticism, is very good tens.
Ferguson is a streaky shooter, but I think he will come around Mawr when the playoffs come around.
Think you'd be more valuable in show more value? Um, I really like being out.
I really like the way to the Ala plays.
He's been injured a couple of times, issued with the elbow.
If you could just get a jump shot.
If he could just hit that three consistently, I think he will see more time on the floor Nerlens.
Noel has really been guys that with underpaid him that thunder paid him.
He was gonna be a free agent.
The Thunder decided to pay him and he has paid off.
He here, Chris, Paul and he and yesterday, Or he and sure to really run that pick and roll very, very well together.
I'll be able to explain a little bit more in detail tonight when I go live and not just kind of show you the play by play.
And what I think of the offense when I go live in against what I play gets chilly tonight, it should be a very good game.
I'm looking forward to seeing how awfully bounces back from a four game losing streak.
That's gonna be pretty much my main focus just to kind of see the energy.
They're gonna play with the same kind of energy oil and be placed with against Steven Adams.
Just kind of see the energy that been Simmons is gonna come out with.
And also Josh Richardson and Tobias hairs.
From there, they match up.
They're very big.
They're very big.
Silly is very big.
They probably gonna give okay, see some problems on the boards tonight.
Let's just see if Oklahoma City can respond on the boards.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how Oklahoma City plays on the road tonight, and if they can keep this one and streak up and if they can, you know Dana Shorty can get going.
You know, in the third and fourth quarter, Chris Paul has been closing out games very well for the thunder.
Very, very well, let's see if he could also, um, keep the thunder in this game.
I expect for it to be a good game.
I don't expect for it to be a blowout either way, because Philly is, it's tired of losing, and they have dropped four games in a row in the Thunder, have won five in a row.
But the Thunder also play well against teams with winning records.
They've played very, very well as of late.
Let's just see what they could do going into the All Star break, kind of getting their feet wet.
Billy Donovan kind of tweaking these lineups with playing different people and trying to see you know what kind of line of pecan have in the playoffs, which we all know.
Playoffs of all about matchups cause you got seven games.
You got seven games and this Just see this cat mouse, um, matchups in the playoffs.
But I want to kind of see what the thunder can bring tonight on this East Coast road trip.
Like I said, they played the Rockets and the Lakers next.
And it's gonna be that those two games are gonna be really telling the see if the Thunder can really compete with those top teams in the West.
They play the Rockets and the Lakers very well this year.
Actually, they did lose those games, but they play them very, very, very well.
Um, all the way up until the end, they always give the Lakers a good run for their money.
I think right now the Lakers are getting extra hut in your kitchen astride a really good time.
Um, Anthony Davis and LeBron James are playing very well right now along Denny Green had 25 the other night.
Cal Cosmo had 20 the other night.
The Lakers are playing very, very well right now, So we all know what the rocket to do it.
If you're a thunder fan in your pants into the Rockies because you, of course, you you know you grew up in You watch Russell Westbrook.
He support us for all those years, and we appreciate that.
So a lot of lot of Thunder fans actually wash the Rockets play because they they actually enjoy watching Russell Westbrook play.
So I'm really looking forward to see goes to games.
I also do a preview.
Those two games and it off stream those two games as well.
That's what I'm.
That's what my goal is.
Since football season is winding down a little bit, I want to make sure that I get some MBA games and as well before I completely transition into NBA games.
Thank you, Jane Doe for joining the broadcast.
Um, like I said, I want the only one to get on here and talk about the thunder and talk about how I feel about the thunder.
I'm going to be streaming the game tonight to get a good idea.
Give you a good idea of what I think about the thunders offense and defense on every possession.
I probably do that for about 20 minutes and let's go.
Come on alive and listen to me preview my hometown scene, the Oklahoma City thunder and what I think so far and what I think they could be.
I'll give more details and more inside about the games as it goes on, because I haven't walked very many gangs with the games I have watched.
I just shared my opinion.
So I appreciate it.
And also you got tonight.
