If I told you that Kevin Durant would score 48 points and the Thunder would still lose to the worst team in the Western Conference, you’d probably tell me to turn in my badge and gun, because I’m off the force. But wait boss, you didn’t let me tell you about the game Gordon Hayward had!
Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year. Next up, the potentially talented but baby-faced Utah Jazz.
“What? Bro, What Are You Talking About, Man?”: Russell Westbrook, NBA All-Star And Media Sass Machine
A reporter asked Russell Westbrook whether or not Utah had won the game or Oklahoma City had lost it – eschewing the fluidity of basketball for a quote. This maneuver, however conniving, is not untried – it’s a staple pot-stirrer and a question Westbrook has probably encountered 500 times in his career. But for whatever reason, he was on particular edge and took exception to the question. And so we’re left with this momentary sass genius.

Only moments earlier with 2:23 left in the first half, Cousins earned his first technical foul of the night for jabbering on about a missed foul call.

Even though the Lakers’ piss poor play is nothing new, it still feels shocking and climactic and emotionally charged every time an “underdog” takes out Los Angeles. Last night the Utah Jazz became the latest team to knock the Lakers off their pedestal, controlling the game in route to a 95-86 victory. But something went terribly, terribly wrong during the game. Details, after the jump.
You thought it was over when Jeremy Evans viciously swatted away a Ronnie Turiaf jumper during last night’s preseason game. Except Evans collected the ball and raced the other way, launching from the second hashmark and raising the ball up for a slam. Poor old Ronnie thought he’d avenge his embarrassment with a rejection of his own, except Evans’ athleticism proved a bit too daunting. Oof.
