Fantasy Update

Nov 13, 2017
Hoops Hype
Coming off a 47-win season fueled by Russell Westbrook’s MVP performance, a fantastic record in crunch time and a surprisingly stingy defense, adding Carmelo Anthony and Paul George to the roster was expected to immediately vault the Thunder into title contention – or as close as anyone can get to that moniker considering the Warriors’ current roster construction. George, in particular, is the perfect second star to a great team. He’s a versatile, and overall fantastic defender perfectly suited to guard the toughest matchups and switch through all five positions. George is a B+ player...

Thunder vs Spurs, final score: OKC’s hot start once again undone in the end, fall 104-101

Thunder vs Spurs, final score: OKC’s hot start once again undone in the end, fall 104-101

You’ve heard this song before. The Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs battled to the final buzzer on Friday night. The Thunder led by as many as 23 early, but the Spurs rallied back and got a hard fought victory at home, 104-101. The Spurs led the Thunder 100-97 late the fourth and the Spurs' Kyle Anderson went to the line and missed a pair of free throws. Paul George came off the screen and had a lane for a layup but elected to throw a skip that was intercepted by Manu Ginobili. George quickly made up for the turnover, stole the ball from Ginobili and was fouled. George made...

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...

Thunder Views: Jerami Grant jumping, George’s 37, and Westbrook’s birthday W

No Melo, no problem. Insert Jerami Grant and shoe swapping Russ. The Thunder celebrated Russell Westbrook’s 29th birthday with a second half burst to beat the Dallas Mavericks, 112-99. Paul George followed up his 42 point performance with 37 more last night. 29 of those came in the second half while 18 of Russ’ 27 also came after the halftime break. This was all done without Carmelo Anthony, as he was a late scratch due to a sore back after battling Blake Griffin in the post in their previous game. OKC didn’t have to look far to fill the void, thanks to guys like Jerami Grant and...

Thunder vs Mavericks, final score: OKC 2nd half surge tames Dallas, 112-99

After a shaky first half, Thunder explode for 39 third quarter points. Box Score | Mavs Moneyball The Oklahoma City Thunder came into this game without Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams in the lineup against the Dallas Mavericks. However, Paul George and Russell Westbrook carried the load offensively and led the Thunder to a 112-99 victory over the Mavericks on Sunday night. Anthony missed tonight's game with a sore back and Adams missed his 2nd straight with a calf injury. In the first half, the Thunder just did not have it going offensively.

Houston Rockets vs. Indiana Pacers game preview

Houston Rockets vs. Indiana Pacers game preview

Full disclosure: I’m writing this preview on Friday before the Houston Rockets have even played the Memphis Grizzlies. So if anything crazy happened in that game, this explains why I am not mentioning said crazy event. The Indiana Pacers sit under .500 on the season. Their biggest offseason story was their trade of Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. While Indy was bashed for making such a seemingly one-sided trade, both players have performed well so far in the young season. Oladipo is averaging 23 points on 46% shooting (45% from deep!) and...

Thunder Views: DAKARI, Paul George, and a win

The Thunder are back on the right track. For now. Well, it finally happened. The Thunder won a game. Their losing streak came to a halt at four games last night. Some people said they’d never win again. Others said it would take years for them to find the win column. But hey, they did the unthinkable. Paul George was spectacular last night, leading the way with 42 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists - his best performance so far in a Thunder uniform. As great as he was, don’t forget about Carmelo Anthony’s effort tonight. He had 14 points on the night, but his real contribution came...
