I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Oklahoma.
"Playing against the Celtics, they make you look at yourself in different ways because they challenge you in so many ways," Brooks said. "They're a physical team, they're smart, they're aggressive. They know how to play, but they've played a lot of basketball. We want to get there one day."
The Thunder really lost the game the last five minutes of the second quarter. They went without a field goal during that time and Boston outscored OKC 22-6 heading to halftime. At one point in the second quarter, the Thunder missed 11 straight shots. The main reason being, bad offense which equaled bad looks. The Celtics will do that to you though. They are downright bloodthirsty for a team that’s struggling to move the ball.
Granted it's one game early in the season, but I expected a lot more from the Thunder.
Yeah, Kevin Durant is a silky smooth scorer and Russell Westbrook is lighting fast, but I thought there would be more. Are they really tough enough inside to challenge the Lakers?
After the jump…photos of the Thunder girls bikini calendar shoot. There weren't enough good pics to meet the strict standards of my Advanced Scouting reports, but I didn't want the pics to go to waste… especially on a rainy Monday.
