Lakers vs. Knicks: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

Lakers vs. Knicks: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

The Lakers visit the Garden for the first time this season. Coming fresh off of their first back-to-back wins since November, the Los Angeles Lakers (10-15) will pay their first visit to Madison Square Garden on Tuesday as they visit the New York Knicks (13-13) with the hope of stringing together three consecutive wins for the first time this season. After trading Carmelo Anthony for what seemed like pennies on the dollar at the time, the Knicks have been one of the more pleasant surprises of the season, sitting pretty at the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference heading into the New Year...

Thunder Views: Frustrated, sluggish, and ugly in loss to Mavericks

Thunder Views: Frustrated, sluggish, and ugly in loss to Mavericks

At least this one wasn’t close. We’re going to keep this one short and sweet. Yes, this season has been disappointing so far, but we haven’t seen many games where OKC has laid an egg for a complete 48 minutes. Well, last night we saw a flat Thunder squad from start to finish, as they lost 97-81 to the 4-15 Dallas Mavericks. Carmelo Anthony put it simply, “Ain’t gonna beat nobody scoring 81 points.” This was OKC’s sixth straight road loss. I’ve done my best to stick with the glass-half-full mentality, but it’s really starting to get tough. Teams have had worse stretches and...

Thunder vs Mavericks preview: OKC looks to rebound vs Dallas

Thunder vs Mavericks preview: OKC looks to rebound vs Dallas

OKC needs to regain its focus tonight in Big D. The Thunder head to Dallas tonight to take on the likely lottery-bound Dallas Mavericks. In their first head-to-head match-up, the Thunder overcame the absence of Steven Adams and Carmelo Anthony to put together a strong 2nd half, a rarity these days. With the Mavericks sitting on only 2 wins so far, the Thunder once again have a material advantage, just as they did in game 1 as well as vs the Kings. However, as we have learned, there is no lead too large, nor opponent too lowly, for OKC to bungle. What I’ll be looking for tonight: Better...

Daily Rumbles: The Thunder taketh and the Thunder giveth away

Daily Rumbles: The Thunder taketh and the Thunder giveth away

and R.K. ain’t happy about it. Good day..... nah, scratch that ... Bad day.... Bad bad day Thunder Nation!!!! I’m blown away. How can a team look so good one minute and turn into a complete dumpster fire the next? Further, how does the same scenario keep repeating itself over and over and over? Here is a possibility; too many cooks spoil the broth, or in the Thunder’s case, too many native Americans and not enough Chiefs. Considering Russell Westbrook’s 6 All-Star appearances, Paul George’s 4, and Carmelo Anthony’s 10, one would think this Thunder team would lack for nothing,...

Daily Rumbles: OKC Thunder not the only ones out of sync

Daily Rumbles: OKC Thunder not the only ones out of sync

Carmelo Anthony talks about playing a full 48 minutes Good day Thunder Nation!!!! It’s game day, for real this time! The Oklahoma City Thunder have teased us with spurts of brilliance and then pulled it away just when our appetites reach their apex. It has frustrated most of us and having a negative affect on some of our lives! For example, I did my Pre-Game LIVE broadcast for the Pelican game.... yesterday..... EARTH TO R.K.! The game isn’t until Monday? THIS MADNESS MUST STOP!!!! Oh well. RECENT RUMBLES We Just Need to Be Ourselves After Sunday’s practice, Carmelo Anthony gave his...

Fourth-quarter woes: the recurring nightmare of Thunder Nation

Fourth-quarter woes: the recurring nightmare of Thunder Nation

The Thunder start fast, but something happens after halftime. We’re now several weeks into the Thunder season, and its quite clear that our beloved trio of scorers pertain an issue that could lead to a skewed finish to the 2017-2018 NBA season. We all know the biggest story that came out of the former offseason: Sam Presti had the summer of his life, beating out any moves made by other GM’s of the league, picking up Paul George and Carmelo Anthony (proving to Russell Westbrook, he means business, and championship contention is on his mind). It didn’t stop there. Mere weeks later,...

Daily Rumbles: Thunder have tough 6 day test ahead.

Recess if over, time to go to work. Good day Thunder Nation!!! The Oklahoma City Thunder have 3 games in the next 6 days and all of them are against teams with better records. Two are on the road, two are against perennial Western Conference powerhouses, and all three will give a pretty fair barometer of where the Thunder stand now. RECENT RUMBLINGS Kwahi out, Parker out, but the Spurs are still the Spurs Like the Thunder, the Spurs season hasn’t started easy, but for different yet similar reasons. After adding Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, the Thunder are struggling to find a balance...

Thursday Bolts: 11.16.17

Recapping the Thunder’s 92-79 win over the Chicago Bulls last night: “Russell Westbrook had 21 points and seven assists and the Thunder beat the Chicago Bulls 92-79 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Oklahoma City had high hopes coming into the season after trading for All-Stars Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, but the Thunder had lost four straight before […]
