Portland Trail Blazers commentators Mike Rice Sr. and Antonio Harvey aren’t big fans of Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks. Both men were upset about the minutes Brooks gave Portland’s two All Stars star, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard.
The Portland duo combined for just 13 points in 22 minutes, while Kevin Durant saw the court early and often.
That didn’t sit very well with Rice and Harvey so both men vented their frustration on Twitter about the rotation Scott Brooks used.
Here is what Rice has to say about the situation:
West bench did not look so happy at end of game. Lack of playing time will do that.

Durant takes 17 3pters & Lillard plays 9 min. That’s bull ——hope everyone remembers next time blazers play s. Brooks — Mike Rice (@mikerice6) February 17, 2014
Here is Harvey’s take on Scott Brooks:
I think most coaches always feel like they can’t give everyone the minutes they want but I think the problems these men have with Brooks is deeper than that. The Thunder and the Trail Blazers played an emotional game last week and I think there is a little animosity brewing between the two teams.
