March 4th, 2011
When OKC plays Atlanta it's always a hard game for me to watch. Not because either team plays badly, but because, before the Thunder came to Oklahoma, the Hawks were my favorite team. I'm always a little torn between the two and usually just want to see a hard fought ...

Can I just start by asking this question, when did Kevin Love become a three-point assassin? The man is one of the best rebounders in the league AND he can step out and go 3-for-3 from deep? That's just ridiculous. Anyway, let's get down to the real game. This game definitely ...
