Don't blame the bench for Thunder loss to Warriors

There's a share of the blame to go around to everybody, including Westbrook and KD. Everyone's blaming the poor bench play for last night's loss to the Warriors. But I'm not so sure. The Thunder played without Westbrook or Durant for a total of two minutes and 34 seconds last night. The Warriors won that span of play 3-2. Hardly a significant impact on the game. So if it wasn't the bench, than what was it? The Warriors weren't able to generate more than a 5 point run against any specific Thunder lineup. Thus, in order to understand the game, we must split Donovan's lineups into...

Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors final score: Warriors pull away late, notch 41st consecutive home win 116-108

The Warriors battled. They fought. At the end of the day, they flipped on the afterburners in time to secure their 41st home win in a row, second all-time. Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors are probably pretty sick of how much the other party is discussed about in connection with him/them. Tonight justified the cosmic link, as Durant's 38-13 squad came into Oakland tonight to face off against Stephen Curry and the 45-4 Warriors, who came in undefeated on their home court. Durant and Russell Westbrook form what is commonly viewed as the most potent one-two punch in the league, if...

Magic will try to slow the Thunder's Russell Westbrook tonight

OKLAHOMA CITY — It would be understandable if Orlando Magic players still felt haunted by what Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook did to them on Oct. 30. Forty-eight points. Eleven rebounds. Eight assists. And, most painful of all, as time expired in regulation, Westbrook heaved...

Wizards at Thunder final score: Washington can't handle Oklahoma City's dynamic duo, falls 114-98

Bradley Beal scores 18, but the Thunder sweep the regular season series against the Wizards After a hard-fought win against James Harden and Dwight Howard on Saturday night, it was different story on Monday against Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. The Wizards could not get out in front of the explosiveness of the Thunder and lost 114-98. Two fast-paced teams traded baskets for the first six minutes of the game. This game may have been too fast for Washington because they turned it over four times in the beginning stretch despite going 6 of 7 from the field. Kevin Durant and Russell...

Three reasons why the Wizards shouldn't give up on Kevin Durant, despite the low odds

The Washington Wizards haven't done much to endear themselves to Kevin Durant this season. The team has dropped off, John Wall didn't take a leap forward this season, and Bradley Beal hasn't been able to put together a stable enough stretch of games to show people he deserves to be a max player yet. And let's not forget Kevin Durant doesn't appear to be a big fan of some fans in the Washington area. Some teams would cut their losses and pursued other options at times like this, but not the Wizards, according to Jorge Castillo: But the Wizards don't foresee pivoting away from their...
