    Wondering also about a couple of new injuries to Westbrook. Left hand had to be tapped up and he rolled his ankle. He was nowhere as explosive after rolling that ankle today.

    we don’t have to go to the game to see the empty seats in the third quarter and everyone sitting down in the fourth. It wasn’t that rowdy.

    If you watch the tape of the game you’ll see that the crowd noise was sporadic, never sustained for more than 2-3 possessions, and overall it was not very helpful. You were probably just drunk

    Maybe it was idk, but it didn’t seem like it visually at all, and there absolutely were numerous empty seats in the third

    I have no idea what you're talking about - place was packed and loud. There are certainly some games where the crowd doesn't have a lot of energy but that was not the case today.

    I was at the game. The crowd was yelling the entire fucking game. SO many "Let's Go Blazer" chants and the crowd erupted with every shot and good defensive play. Even when OKC was on a run, people cheered and clapped to get the team back into it. Also- not much vocal support for OKC which is different than regular season when the opposing team has a voice. Start of the third, people are still getting back from bathroom and getting beer, true, but they got back eventually and carried the game for the guys. That's true of every arena in the league. I've been to all 29.

    So your going to base it off of the background noise picked up from mics compared to people that have gone to games for years? Do you realize how ridiculous that is, or are you oblivious?

    All I’m telling you is that after watching all the playoff games, the blazers home crowd seemed like one of the quietest. I doubt they are turning down the volume on the blazer crowd. I think you just have low expectations for playoff games.

    I get they THINK it was loud.

    Maybe twenty people screaming in their ear in the 300 section doesn’t translate to a loud stadium.

    Not sure why most-all the other stadiums sound louder on tv...

    There are always empty seats for the first 5-7 mins of the third. People are in line getting popcorn. Go to a game a few times and you will see what i'm talking about here. The Rose Garden was very loud and very electric today. The Fans were great bro.

    You are wrong. It's that simple. If you were at the game, you would've known how loud it was. I can't speak to sound issues for ABC and how they mike the games. They've only aired two so far. I don't have low expectations for playoff games. I have attended playoffs games in Cleveland, Boston, Portland, Memphis, Los Angeles (Lakers and Clippers), and New Orleans. I know what the playoffs sound like and this crowd was fucking loud beginning to start. People that sit around me who don't usually cheer were screaming their brains out.

    Holy hell.

    Moda Center sounded as loud as any other arena. I think you're looking for something to complain over.

    Reading about the extent of Paul George's injury. Sounds like he is going to continue to play through pain as i guess he can't injure it further but he will need surgery after the season.
    Not sure how to verify that but that is the overall consensus on the Thunder forums.
