Westbrook Strikes Back, Wizards Save Christmas, Cavs-Warriors Takeaways

Westbrook Strikes Back, Wizards Save Christmas, Cavs-Warriors Takeaways

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - December 27, 2017 - 1:04:02

On today's show Sharp and Golliver get together to talk through takeaways from Christmas Day. First (3:00): they talk through Oklahoma City's win against Houston and the latest twist in the Great Harden-Westbrook War of 2017. Has OKC actually changed? What does it mean if Chris Paul wasn't playing? And if the Thunder stabilize over the next few weeks, how much will that affect their decision on a Paul George trade? Then (21:00): Revisiting old Celtics takes, debating the differences between Bradley Beal and Kyrie Irving, and looking for resolution on whether Christmas is a real holiday. At the end (38:00): Golliver thinks the NBA needs some flex options on Christmas, the Cavs still can't play defense, the Warriors are a different team without Steph, and don't sleep on adult legos.
