Pre-, in-, and post-game views from OKC fans

The following are actual comments gathered from Oklahoma forums

Pre-game views

I am in a really good mood today. Shall I risk ruining that by watching this game?

Do any other Thunder fans think that long term it might be for the best if we don't make the playoffs because it will force this organisation to finally get off their arse and make the tough changes necessary?

We have the talent right now to challenge for a championship but we play like a bunch of uncoached high schoolers. If we shuffle some pieces to improve our shooting and at the very very least hire an assistant coach who can teach our guys how to run an effective offence we would be unstoppable.

It's actually incredible and a huge credit to our players that we've done as well as we have to this point essentially playing hero ball.

People criticise Westbrook for his playmaking but think about it, he came into the league as a defensive specialist and the ONLY person he's had to teach him how to run an offence is Scott Brooks!

If I'm Presti I hire Steve Nash to be an assistant coach next season.

THUNDER UP!! It's been my first game since I was a little kid, so I'm stoked. Here's to hoping I don't get too much flack for wearing OKC flair in the nose bleeds when we pull out the much needed W.

In-game views

Memphis has given us every opportunity to be up in this game but Brooks, Jackson and Dion have said fuck it.

An insane number of fouls have been called on us. It seems almost like every time we drive to the basket we commit a foul, and every time they drive we do something wrong. So many And One's too. Infuriating.

It's turning into a perpetual dick measuring contest between KD, Russ, Dion, and Reggie. No team play at all. James Naismith is rolling in his grave over the excessive iso ball.

Post-game views

This is pathetic. The Thunder have fallen apart. They aren't playing like a team but like a bunch of guys at a pickup game or something.

FIRE SCOTT BROOKS!!! FIRE THAT PIECE OF F*****G WASTE OF A GOD DAMN CAREER M**********R CREATES THE WORST HALF COURT OFFENSE IN THE LEAGUE WITH TWO TOP FIVE PLAYERS ARE YOU F*****G KIDDING ME S**T!!!!!!!!!!!

Im so f*****g done! There's no god damn point in supporting this team while that piece of f*****g s**t is coach. DONE.

F**k this. I'm sorry but despite how good Memphis is, this is OKC's fault. This was an incredibly winnable game. Every opportunity was there but Brooks refused to pull Dion and Jackson. They shot 5-17 and had 7 turnovers, while ignoring every teammate on the court.

This season is over. Even if we make it to the 8th seed, I'm sorry but thats as far as we get playing like we're playing. You don't play terrible all season and then just get better against Golden State or Memphis because it matters.

At one point in the fourth there was a play that resulted in Morrow getting his shot blocked. Commentator Brian Davis stated something like, "Morrow got his shot blocked, but that was one of the better run plays." And I think Brian Davis was correct.

Grizzlies are tough.

No more THUNDER its just drizzling now.

fell to Grizzlies? Omg.. com'on OKC.

Ugly but effective is the only way to describe the Grizzlies' performance tonight
