Bedlam had its highest-scoring affair last season with a 62-52 final in Oklahoma’s favor. 2018’s iteration of the series didn’t quite get there Womens Matt Bryant Jersey , but it tried, while also having a good ending in a 48-47 Oklahoma win.Oklahoma was up 48-41 when Oklahoma State got the ball back with 3:29 remaining. In nine plays and 71 yards later, the Pokes were able to find the end zone to make it a 48-47 game on a fourth-and-12 doozie from Oklahoma’s 24-yard line:Mike Gundy opted to go for two, and failed on this play:The Sooners got the ball back with 1:02 left, and were able to milk the clock to secure the 48-47 win.While Saturday’s game didn’t match the 2018 scoring extravaganza, the game was still an impressive one that was filled with so much offense, that your defense-loving uncle would have shaken his first at such a performance.Because these two teams were just slangin’ the pigskin around like it was nothing, there’s a bunch of numbers we need to run through on this one.First, some ridiculous first half numbers, because it could have made for a full game just about anywhere else.11Kyler Murray started this game off hot:Hope you made a wish when it was 11-11.527The amount of yards that Taylor Cornelius and Kyler Murray combined for through the air in the first half. Corneilus went 16-of-26 for 304 yards and two touchdowns, while Murray went 15-of-19 for 227 yards and a touchdown. Oddly enough, you could say that Murray had “cooled down” after his perfect start.In those, Tylan Wallace had the most impressive performance among receivers with 148 yards and a touchdown for Oklahoma State.Basically, there was enough passing between the two teams for an entire game in 30 minutes of play.6-6That’s the red zone numbers combined for both teams. Oklahoma State converted on both of their first half red zone attempts, whereas Oklahoma went 4-of-4.0That’s the number of turnovers we had in the first half. Ball security + tons of offense = The Most Big 12 Football.62The amount of first half points. Oklahoma led Oklahoma State 34-28. Of course, that was just the start of this one.In the end, the game’s numbers are just ridiculous.The second half got off to somewhat of a murky start, but the two teams picked things back up rather quickly as you might imagine. While it didn’t meet the pace that they were at in the first half, this was still a game that lived up to its name.1,342The amount of total yards for the game. Last season Womens att Bosher Jersey , the two teams combined for 1,446 total yards. So this year’s game is still somehow a little bit more chill in comparison.850Combined passing yards! Murray and Cornelius kept things going, and both finished with big games, though cooled off from their hot first half starts.Murray finished the game 21-of-29 with 349 yards and a touchdown. Cornelius finished the game 34-of-53 with 501 yards and three touchdowns. Had he gotten that 35th completion on their two-point conversion attempt, we would be talking about the Sooners being out of the Playoff.11-11This is some red zone success, y’all. The Pokes finished 5-of-5, and the Sooners finished 6-of-6. Scoring scoring scoring.353Oklahoma’s rushing yards. This one is particularly impressive because Oklahoma State *only* had 139 in comparison. Either way, both of these teams racked up the yards.6:09The time of the first turnover of the game, which came in the fourth quarter. That was rather nice ball security by both teams leading up to this point.4That’s the win streak that the Sooners are now on against the Pokes. Until next time, y’all. The Houston Rockets don’t just have one problem, they have a damn collection of them as the first month of the season comes to a close. When Houston let both Trevor Ariza and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, its best perimeter defensive players, leave in free agency, the team’s glaring flaw felt obvious, but Houston’s also 4-6 with a bottom-end offense as well. The Rockets have a whole lot to fix — and nothing’s simple.Last season, Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system was the most exaggerated adherence to modern basketball analytics to date. It nearly paid off, as his team won 65 games and nearly knocked off the Warriors in the Western Conference. It’s no surprise the same mindset is intact this year, but the problem is that the same talent isn’t. It’s older, injured, and frankly http://www.falconsfootballauthentics.com/devonta-freeman-jersey-authentic , not as skilled as it once was. And that’s not all that was obvious in an 18-point loss to an Oklahoma City Thunder team without Russell Westbrook on Thursday night. Let’s try and diagnose the battered contenders. 1. The Rockets stars have all missed timeThe most obvious causation for Houston’s slow start is that James Harden, Chris Paul, and Eric Gordon have combined to miss eight games. The team is 2-1 without Gordon, 1-2 without Harden and 0-2 without Paul.Three of the best four players on the team missing time is 100 percent a valid reason for a team floundering, but it isn’t the only one.2. Chris Paul might be feeling his age for the first timeWe’ve only played 10 games, but it’s possible that 33-year-old Paul is finally regressing. Going into Wednesday night’s game, he was averaging his fewest points per game in 12 years (17.7) on the worst shooting of his life from the field (39.6 percent) and from three (29.5 percent), all while turning the ball over more frequently than ever (4.4 times per 100 possessions.)This was always the risk Daryl Morey and co. ran by signing an aging superstar to a four-year, $160 million contract this summer. For Houston to win, it needs everyone at the top of their game by May. If not, they don’t have spare 20-points-per-night players like the Warriors. The Rockets are, and have always been, operating in a tight championship window.Of course, Paul could recover just fine. It’s something to monitor. 3. Shocker, there’s a Carmelo Anthony problem loomingOne of the oddest offseason moves Houston could’ve possibly made actually happened when they signed a mid-range-happy, no-defense-playing 34-year-old Melo. Just like the Thunder, the Rockets have an Anthony problem.Houston’s coaxed Anthony into accepting a bench role, which is more than his previous bosses can say. But even in more limited minutes, it’s getting harder to justify him playing at all. In 37 minutes with Melo playing alongside Harden and Paul, Houston is being outscored by 14.8 points per 100 possessions. Anthony shoots just 44 percent from the field Womens Desmond Trufant Jersey , wavers in and out of the team’s conscious effort against long two-point shots, and even more crushingly, hands over points on the other end.It turns out he isn’t a viable Mbah A Moute or Ariza replacement, or even a Ryan Anderson replacement.4. There’s nobody to defend opposing wings — the most versatile position in the NBAI keep harping on those two missing pieces in Mbah A Moute and Ariza, but it’s hard to understate how important they were last season. The league is depending more and more on its 6’5-to-6’9 guys to shoot, score, and create to lead an offense, and Houston let go of its best answers for those talents.In a 19-point loss to the Pelicans, Nikola Mirotic scored 30 points on 20 shots (6-of-8 threes.)In a 3-point loss to the Clippers, Tobias Harris scored 23 points on 15 shotsIn an 11-point loss to the Jazz, Donovan Mitchell scored 38 points on 25 shotsIn a 20-point loss to the Clippers, Lou Williams scored 23 points on nine shotsShooters and slashers are having their way, and that’s alarming.It’s too early to go into a full panic, but soon it won’t beIt’s just 10 games now, but if a similar level of play persists into the holidays, the Rockets are in deep trouble. They are in Win Now mode with a pair of in-their-prime stars and a maxed-out budget. Coming out of a hole like that won’t be simple. If there’s anyone that can solve the issue, it’s a mastermind like Morey. The obvious move would be a trade for Jimmy Butler, but is there enough to offer? And what’s the backup plan?Houston has a lot to worry about, especially with its competitors getting better by the day.
