**** you Thunder, you're just God's farts
I would take a wide open Sefolosha jumper every time over a free drive to the basket. If Collison is as good offensively as he's been the past few game, you have to play him. And you can't have him guarding Westbrook every single play. It'll prolly be similar to how PG guards Rose occasionally.
I think Collison will have a good game; the Thunder don't exactly play fundamentally sound defense. They play the passing lanes and they depend on Ibaka, Perkins, and Durant to make plays at the rim constantly. For being 6', Collison really doesn't shoot the ball if he's getting blocked.
I said this in another thread but I believe someone's going to get tossed in this one.
I have waited all year for this game (live in OKC), only question is, do I watch from home or go to a sports restaurant filled with Thunder fans?
Squash the Durantula.....ouch a little Gregg Williams of me.
i just hope its close
Take down the ZombieSonics!

Have to work until 10-ish, so I'm rooting for a competitive game when I come home to hit up the DVR! Go Pacers!
i just wish this game would start now... i can't wait
This is a HUGE statement game in front of what will probably be a packed fieldhouse.
The Pacers have been playing inspired ball lately, I would not have given them much chance at winning this game two weeks ago, but I think they have a good chance tonight.
The big problem is of course at the PG position. I still have nightmares about Westbrook having one of his breakout game against us. We had no answer then and DC will still have no answer. All of his former teammates or UCLA alumni always totally own him. Hopefully George squared can play some good D on him.
We have to come out and set the tempo right off the bat. Pure intensity, every quarter. I think Pacers getting steals are going to be a big key to a W. Get some steals and get the offense rolling. Then don't let them get anything inside, no second chance points. Lou will be a big factor tonight. Hib worries me a little though. If He gets denied a few times and knocked around, I'm afraid that he withers for the rest of the game.
Should be a fun one
Collison worries me in this game... he always seems to not have the greatest performance when he plays against Westbrook.
James Harden and Eric Maynor were at Kilroy's last night, low key sitting in the back.
well i say DC last 3 minutes b4 vogel realizes he needs someone bigger on Westbrook
I think that we're 3-0 from the time that TOP signed in this forum. That's got to count for something, right? :D
I'm calling it. Darren Collison is going to have another great game.
Statement game. cmon pacers give fans something to cheer about aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhhhhhh
Hoping for minimum Thunder bandwagon fans tonight. Wish I could've made it. Go Pacers!
