    Not sure I'm following why thats funny...
    They're 8 & 2 over the last 10 games. They're playing well.

    I really hope Ayton and Zion don’t end up teaming up in Phoenix, that will be depressing if they get their big 3 through the draft that quick(Booker being the other)

    Booker is overrated. Somehow, I think that Big 3 wouldn't even reach contention.

    It would stomp our Big 3

    I’ll take an 18 year old Zion, a 19 year old Ayton, and a 22 year old Booker and let that cake bake over any 4 current Blazers at their current age.

    I'm surprised Westbrook is just now hitting 108 triple doubles. It seemed like he had 40+ of them in consecutive seasons... Did he lose half of them to a doping infraction I missed?

    Thunder have 14 wins against losing teams and 2 wins over teams > .500. That is the easiest schedule I have ever seen over the first 23 games of an NBA season.

    Yep, and wait until post all star break when they actually have to play games against good teams. From Feb 7 - April 10, almost all of OKCs opponents will be playoff teams with winning records. They need to pad their record now against PHO (three times), CLE (twice), ATL, BRK, etc. while they can. They are using up all their gimmes before Christmas.

    If you look at the last 28 games on their schedule, the only gimme will be BRK (who they struggled to beat last night). You might also include SAC as a gimme, but so far OKC is 0-2 against SAC. Over the last two months of the season, they will play all of the other Western Conference playoff teams, most of them twice, even their games against the East will be tough ones (TOR twice, IND twice, MIL). No PHO, CLE, ATL, CHI, etc.

    Enjoy it while you can.

    Of course, we probably won't have to worry much about that, since after tonight, we don't get any kind of a schedule break for a month (NYK, 1/7/19). 15 straight games against playoff contenders (I most certainly DON'T consider the Kings a gimme); the way the Blazers have been playing lately, they'll be lucky to win 3.

    I’m not an OKC fan, I hope they lose. But props to them for winning games they should. Especially with such a garbage player running the point for them.
