To all my readers: I thunderyou!

Royce Young (ESPN) on Cleveland’s new bunch getting the best of the Thunder this time: “It’s one of James’ many remarkable traits that a roster halfway turned over just a week ago can show up and play cohesively, moving the ball to open players and generating connected offense. James is so adaptable, and carries a gravity that forces teammates to fit, that the Cavs can remodel their team on the fly, whereas it took the Thunder three months and 30 games to start to figure it out.”

Heather Koontz (Thunderous Intentions) with some hilarious Thunder-related Valentine’s Day cards. 

Moke Hamilton (Thunder Wire) on Russell Westbrook not wanting to discuss his ankle injury: “Always a man of few words, Westbrook clearly wasn’t in the mood to discuss his return from injury, especially after a loss. When asked whether it “felt weird” to be watching his team from the sidelines over the past few games, Westbrook didn’t even pretend to want to engage in the discussion.”

Brett Dawson (NewsOK) on Steven Adams being a beast on the boards against the Cavs: “The Oklahoma City center tipped Thunder misses and snatched others away from the Cavaliers on Tuesday at Chesapeake Energy Arena on his way to a franchise-record 12 offensive rebounds.”

He may be the smallest man on the Thunder’s roster, but one does not just push Raymond Felton and get away with it.

AJ Mason (Thunder Wire) on Larry Nance Jr. being impressed by Adams’ strength: “According to one of the newest members of the Cavs, Larry Nance, Jr., Butler wasn’t fibbing. Nance agrees that Adams has truly remarkable strength. “He’s the strongest player in the league in my opinion, and it’s not close,” Nance said to reporters after the Cavs defeated the Thunder on Tuesday night.”
