NBA super fan James Goldstein made his Oklahoma City playoff debut Monday night.

How many playoff games so far for you?

“Only two so far. Saturday, I had a tough time. I couldn't come to Oklahoma and get back to L.A. for the game there, so that's a weird thing that I didn't see a game.”

A rare day off for you during the playoffs?

“It's hard with the games in L.A. and the games in the Southwest. I'm going back to L.A. tomorrow. Then, I'm going to Memphis Wednesday, Dallas Thursday, Denver Friday.”

What do you think of the Thunder so far?

“I really love watching them because it's such an exciting team.”

Are you looking forward to a potential Thunder-Lakers matchup?

“I am because I'm an anti-Laker fan, and I'm confident the Thunder can beat them.”
