Thunders Lakers game and performance they had against the Lakers.
It wasn't a very good performance.
I thought they would come out and play better to the net.
Was missing their three starters in Danny Green, Anthony Davis and LeBron James and the Thunder came out flat after that kind of emotional win against Houston at home.
And I thought that they would play better and have the energy and momentum.
But they split the two home games and they're going roads.
In this sort of tonight, I will be previewing the Minnesota game, but I don't know if I'm gonna stream it because I'll be watching the national championship and I probably stream 1/4 of the national championship and talk about that.
So there's two games going on tonight, so I probably have to watch some of that thunder game just to give you guys a recap of what I thought I had it under played.
This kind of gonna be the same situation I had with the Titans and the Ravens when the Thunder were playing.
I was trying to watch the game, but I was unable to stream it.
But I'll try to get maybe a little bit of that thunder game is, well, what? You see how it goes.
But here's my thoughts about how to thunder played against the Lakers.
A flat flat would be the word that would best describe their performance very flat.
I thought it would be better than that.
They will come out with energy and won't get those three games in a wrong, that win streak going back again.
But they came out flat.
They won a tough game in Brooklyn, but over time after they lost the tough game against the 76 years, and then they came home and won a good game against the Houston Rockets and then came out flat without LeBron Anthony Davis and Danny Green, there was still no New Orleans.
Well, I'm not sure when he'll be back.
I'll have to look at the line ups seeing it's Minnesota, see if he's coming back.
So this is that she's out. That's how I feel.
It won't be a long video.
Um, let me give you guys some stats and just talk about things that I saw When I was watching back and forth, I had to screens up.
I have a laptop up that I had my TV, the TV head, of course, the Titans Ravens game and my laptop.
Half the thunder in the Lakers game.
But I'll just tell you my thoughts in the first quarter.
I did watch all of the first quarter where they got bullets, 41 to 19 of the game.
Before that, the Dallas Mavericks got bliss in the first quarter.
But of course, LeBron gently playing Cal Koosman got going early in both games.
So LeBron James had a cold against Dallas.
I mentioned in my previous stream, and then he didn't play against Okay, see what they call it flu like symptoms, which I think LeBron was really sick because he said this year he doesn't want to miss games.
He can play already, too.
He wants to play our 82.
Kutner was the guy, and I said that I said that in a broadcast before that Koosman would be the guy, and he darn sure was the guy.
He was a guy in Dallas.
He also was the guy in O.
With a B being out.
Koos is that God is gonna get give LeBron, uh, the best chance to win because he's the only player that I feel can create his own jump shot.
Everybody else kind of depends on LeBron or Rondo kind of setting him up for jump shots.
Kcp Bradley's body out there to shoot.
He's after the play defense, but when he's open, shooting the ball is what LeBron wants him to do.
Thank you, Messi.
Best we're going to broadcast.
I appreciate it in just making waves.
I appreciate you guys were during the broadcast.
I am recapping the Thunder Lakers game.
Kuzma had another 20 point performance.
20 plus 20 performance Cools my head.
No, actually, he had 36 7 Rondo had 2112 and eight.
Typical Rondo game as playoff Rondo.
Everybody kind of knows who played off Rondo is.
Rondo is kind of a guy in the playoffs against your triple doubles.
He played very well.
They had seven players in double figures.
Their best score.
Let me tell you, score in double figures for the bench.
Dwight Howard, Caruso, Troy Daniels and Quinn Cook, and I'm the Quinn Cook and Caruso would get more minutes with those guys being out.
And I also, um, new Troy Daniels.
We get minutes with those guys being out as well.
So they scored all 48 bench points.
Those four players scored all 48 bench points.
Dwight Howard had a game.
I said he needs to have 10 to 15.
He had 12 and 14.
So Dwight Howard Waas the guy I thought he needs to be in order for the Lakers to win.
I predicted that before.
Also predicted the starting lineups before is well, and they came out with those same starters I about previous before the game.
So when you shoot 46% swing the forest for 6.
7% from the field, 29% from 3 88.
2 from the free throw line.
And think you give up 46 point now from the 3 51.
5% from the field and 80% from the free throw line, they were plus six.
At the three point line, they made six more threes and we did, which equals 18 points.
Fastbreak points were equal.
Each team got a tick.
I didn't see the text.
I really wasn't paying attention to the game that much after the first and second quarter because I was watching that Titan's ravensgame.
We gave up 54 assist.
We're pretty even steals.
We have six blocks, seven turnovers.
They had 12 turnovers, Um, but they had 12 turnovers when we only had a fast break points.
They took 99 shots.
We took 92 of the biggest lead they had was 32.
We shot seven more free throws and they did, Um, making 88.
2% of those are bench scoring.
We had 34 points on the bench.
SG and Gallo both had 24 piece, but s she had no assists and eight boards.
Um, yeah, we were plus five in the third and plus five in the fourth, and that was pretty much garbage time for that game.
But it was just It was not a good gang for us.
I wanted us to get those two home wins.
You know, you needed those two home wins after following going on winning three of four on the road in the East Coast trip.
You want to get those two homeless before you went to Minnesota.
Minnesota is a decimated team without car.
Right now, um, I'll preview that game.
Just a reminder.
Our preview, that game in 6 30 tonight.
Preview their game, and I probably tried to recap it.
Problem tryto watch it, but I'm going to probably stream the national championship at least 1/4 of it.
Just making move, making waves for the 20 thumbs up.
I don't know how these things work.
I just get over here and talk sports, and I appreciate all the love you guys showing Mia's well, but I just It was a flat performance.
It was something that they tried to come back.
They tried to make that push me.
If I tried to make a push, things like ****les may hit a shot or Quinn cook a hit.
Quinn Cook came out firing, and I said this in a preview broke as he will come out firing without those others on the floor.
That's what he's out there to do.
Is shoot, um, Crusoe Play well, Dwight, How had Dwight Howard type of game? I was, I think, the play they got me out of my seat was seen Steven Adams dunk on travail.
MacGyver job gets dumped on quite often, so that doesn't surprise me, but they're really got me on my seat. I said Okay, Thunder.
You're playing well in the first quarter.
And then boom, that blitz just came.
Rondo having 2112 and eight doesn't shock me as much as in my shock.
Rondo is capable of those numbers.
If you put him in the right position, he won't give it to you every night, Of course.
But he is playoff Rundle when he needs to be.
He's a wise veteran.
I was looking forward to the match up with him and Chris Paul.
He really didn't get into it.
Even Rondo's a hothead and Chris possible doll on the floor.
But the Lakers played well.
They did what the Lakers do, but they did it without LeBron 80 and any grain would have seen this in the playoffs.
The Lakers have not done that.
I mean, LeBron late teams have not done that in the past when there's no LeBron.
If there it's a concert for Miami, Miami didn't have LeBron Bosch and maybe Ray Allen for today and grain substitution, they would probably lose the game.
But, um, I think the Lakers, I think rappelling has done a good job, and Jeanie Buss did a good job of putting those players around LeBron that understand their roles.
They're young, They want to get out and run a little bit.
He also has the bigs he hadn't had in the past, and they're confident.
Cal Koosman is a very, very confident guy.
Thank you, Jane Doe for going to broadcast.
I appreciate it.
Calico seems confident.
Cal Koosman? No, he's 1/3 option, but he knows when he gets on the floor, and there's no Abyan does.
He's the first option Rondo tries to.
Frank Vogel does a very good job of putting him in position to be successful with him around on the floor together.
Rondo say, Hey, man gets your spot.
I'm gonna get you the ball If you get doubled or whatever you do, just kick out to one of your shooters is probably gonna be Casey pee on the floor, Caruso or somebody like that.
Troy Daniels got some playing time, which was very good to see Troy dances.
I knocked down shooter.
I like Troy Daniels.
He's bounced around a little bit in the MBA, but with those guys out there toward, they give Troy Daniels the confidence to come in at any time and knock down some important shots for the Lakers.
When you shoot 46.
9% from three, you're probably gonna win a lot of games.
And when you're plus six from three, that means three points and three pointers made.
They were plus six equals 18 points.
That's probably going to get you a lot of games as well.
So the Lakers came out and did what they did.
They pushed us in the mouth in the fourth quarter, and we were unable to respond for the whole game.
We looked flat on the day we tried to make a push at the end, but it was just too late.
Chris Paul had 18th.
Excuse me, he had 16 5 and eight.
I mean, it's run around his averages for the season, so they didn't shock me.
What shocked me is how did they look? They look dead.
They looked like they didn't want to play and I was disappointed they didn't look like they wanted to play until probably third or fourth, quarter said.
They should have had that England when they were down, 41 to 19.
I expect the thunder to come out tonight with more energy.
I'm staying on the positive side here, but also give him my raw opinion.
They better come out tonight with some energy to have three home games against three teams, three tough teams.
They have Toronto Miami importantly, and Miami is coming off the disappointing loss against the Knicks.
You know they're gonna want to get a win there.
Toronto was coming off of a disappointing loss against the Spurs.
So they're gonna go in the wind and Portland's gonna wanna win because Portland trying to climb back into the playoffs, which is the Thunder.
They're already there in that seven.
So that puts the thunder two games back of Dallas instead of one gang back.
So you have those three games or three tough games you're gonna have at home.
So you need to go get this win against Minnesota tonight, a decimated Minnesota team, because you're gonna see them again on the 25th and they're coming toe. Okay.
See, on the 25th.
But you want to get their win tonight because you have those three games.
Toronto, Paso seaq um, calorie Ibaka.
You have those guys do it eventually.
Then you go back and you gotta deal with Bam Kendrick. Nine.
Jimmy Butler, you come back and you gotta deal with Hassan Whiteside.
Mellow c J McCollum in Daniel Miller.
So that's that's a tough stretch for the thunder.
So you want this win tonight? You want this way in Memphis creeped up into that a c Memphis's and plan.
Well, John Moran and Dillon Brooks and J.
J have been playing very, very, very well.
So you want to stay? I say that doesn't want to get that succeed.
Honestly, I want him to see him get that six leads.
66 seed impossibly matchup against Houston or maybe against Denver.
I think the Clippers are trying to find their way.
Quiet's not playing every game.
Um, Paul George is trying to play every game so that their their players aren't playing every game, so you want to kind of Get that six seed.
Maybe that seven.
See, you don't want to follow that a seed and play the Lakersfirst or wherever than one seed in the West is probably gonna be a Lakers.
I'm assuming I don't see them pretty much moving from that spot.
You match up well against certain teams.
Electors is not one of them, in my opinion, because no one can stop LeBron and they have no one to stop. 80.
So LeBron is home playoff.
LeBron here goes, they are dark 30 and he'll have a good performance and 80 will be a d.
You finally get to showcase his talent in the playoffs.
But the Lakers came out a lot of fire, a lot of energy saying Hey, we don't have our guys So these other guys just stepped up to the plate very well.
Like I said in the previous broadcast, everything that I said the previous Brock as came to fruition.
Those guys, I thought, gonna be aggressive and play well.
They were aggressive when they play well and I said if they do that, the Lakers will be it.
So they did those things.
The thunder just laid an egg. It happens.
It's the MBA. You're playing 82 game.
You're gonna lay eggs every now and then, but she wants to get on that street.
You have three tough games at home before you go to Houston to Orlando and then your home for a lamp.
So you kind of want to get your feet wet and get this streak back going.
But I don't have a doubt that thunder come out tonight and play very well against Minnesota.
I was kind of wrong against the Lakers, but you can't really predict I envy everywhere is gonna play.
You just kind of give your thoughts and opinions on how you think they should play in order for that team chemistry and that team Moreau to kind of just stay going forward.
I appreciate everybody for joining me.
I'll be back at 6:30 p.
Eastern to preview the Minnesota game and also probably try to string Miami Cain's production.
Thank you for joining the broadcast.
I appreciate it, um, towards into my broadcast, but you go back and re watch it Airy mark.
See? Thank Oh, Air Mark.
Thank you for doing the bar CASS.
I appreciate it.
I'm towards the end of my broadcast.
I'm sorry, guys, but you guys and go back and watch it as well.
I'm a Bulls and heat finger.
How do you think your balls are playing this season? And what did you think about the Heat performance against the Knicks? Just curious.
Barefoot balls Living scored 20 straight.
I think I saw that a terrible loss to the Knicks.
I don't get the wash the game.
I watch the highlights and I said, Who goodness looks like Julian's.
Randall came back for the Knicks after the passing of his grandmother.
He played the gang for her.
He didn't get dedicated a game to her if I was looking at the highlights, right.
But I know he's been missing the team who was tanking.
You think you think the Bulls are tanking you that you're talking about the Knicks? You know what you're talking about? A.
Continue, Yeah, I think Miami is definitely a tender me in these don't let the next year you need to get rid of dollars.
They need to hear rid of Dolan, a sap that she's not a good look for them at all.
They did my boy mellow so wrong.
And then they got rid of I'm their coach after he won 56 plus games, so ever was.
But the neck suggests going nowhere fast.
In my opinion, I think the bulls show flashes.
What do you think the bull show flashes like? Yeah, we can We can be We can be good, you know, we can be good.
And then, Boom, how do you feel about the bulls? How do you feel about Cody White? I like him a Kobe White.
Unh! Oh, yeah, That's gonna happen.
Do you think the Bulls have a closer or veteran leadership? OK, Zach.
About the veteran leadership.
You think the Bulls have that? I've been watching her mean Bulls games this season, But once football season winds down, I'll be a Bill watch Maury NBA games.
He treasures to the Bulls from the Pacers. I forgot a benefit.
I am not in tune with basketball right now. Excuse me, guys.
