Chandler is more physical than Perkins? What? He may be a better finisher of lobs and dump-offs and is definitely a better athlete at this point, but more physical? Do you watch the NBA? And how do the Thunder gain anything psychologically against a team coming in on their 4th game in 5 nights and without Ginobili? They may definitely win home-court, but way too much is being made of this psychological aspect. Did the Spurs gain some psychological edge after they won 4 in a row last year, including the last two regular season meetings in decisive fashion and then the first two games of the series in a similar dominating fashion? If they did, it must have backfired. The Spurs are the ones that lost the series last year. They are the ones that should have the psychological issues with the Thunder. The only people with psychological issues are probably the fans, because we tend to worry. It's why we're fans. Matt on Apr 03, 2013 @ 12:32 am The question for Thursday's game between Spurs and Thunder is who will check the Spur's Duncan who could rattle off 15 to 20 points and 10 or more rebounds, block shots and give and go plays with Duncan passing to whoever is free and driving. The Thunders bigs have got to be physical with Duncan, Parker, Green, Leonard and Ginobili who is not playing and Neal who replaces him. If Parker is let loose with his drives to the basket and his guard will be left always behind and not playing him closely, it will be Brooks nightmare, because he usually does not adjust to from game to game, even if it is obviously clear. My guess is Brooks is a one dimensional coach and some of his assistants. Just wished that the Thunder had gotten Tyson Chandler, who is more physical than the Thunder's Perkins, block shots and can score more points. Tyson has a scoring average of 9 point and 11 rebounds against Perkins 4 points and 6 rebounds. Gary on Apr 02, 2013 @ 10:29 pm If the Thunder wins Thursday night, that gives the Thunder an edge psychologically, but not necessarily home court advantage, but what the heck, they already gave way too many chances slip by with being walloped by losing teams. close Your browser does not support iframes. 0 0 0 0 Submit Letter Hide Comments 1 Tip To Lose Belly Fat Cut pounds of stomach fat every week by using this 1 weird old tip. www.PerfectWeightLossTrifecta.com Search Roomster Now Apartments, Roommates, Sublets www.Roomster.com Ads by Yahoo! × Trending sports Article Nick Saban as Longhorns coach would raise the bar in Big 12 Advertisement Related Multimedia 3 Article Gallery: NBA tiebreaking procedures Trending Now 76986OSU football: OSU cheer squad member will be disciplined after Bedlam gaffe 48898Nick Saban as Longhorns coach would raise the bar in Big 12 30572OU football: Controversial Bedlam tweet likely made by non-OU employee 18933Life in an Oklahoma City violent crime hot spot 16102Oklahoma State football: Gundy's dispassion not the problem 13913Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch anything but worthwhile 12061Video: Garth Brooks makes surprise 2014 world tour announcement on "Good Morning America"
