Went to the Thunder game last night. Celtics came to town. I hate the Celtics. Grew up a Lakers fan, for no reason. I mean, I wish I grew up on the beach, going to games at the Forum. But no, just grew up here watching the Purple and Gold on TV in the days of Magic and Kareem.
So, still a Lakers fan. Still get NBA League Pass to watch their games. Still hate the Celts. The Finals last June were brutal.
So the Doc Rivers-led squad rolled to the Ford Center on Wednesday night and rolled over the Thunder. OKC put up a fight in the first, then laid down as the best team in the Eastern Conference methodically played their game and beat OKC beat 13.
Had great seats for this game. Attending an NBA game in OKC has always been an entertaining experience. Almost like attending a concert there. It’s as much for the atmosphere and seeing everyone as it is for the hoop.
