Oklahoma City 105, New York 84: “It’s one game”

Oklahoma City 105, New York 84: “It’s one game”

Tis better to have hung for a half than never to have hung at all. The most important takeaway from the Knicks’ 105-84 opening night loss in Oklahoma City is that it’s just one game, the game that’s like literally the furthest removed from both the team and narrative we’ll see develop over the season. A lot of this game’s headlines were easy to see coming. The Thunder led most of the way. Kristaps Porzingis was the Knicks’ best player. Carmelo Anthony took a lot of shots and scored a lot of points. Russell Westbrook had a triple-double. Ron Baker did not. The thing no one saw...

Thunder Views: Westbrook triple-doubles, traveling violations, and Steven Adams

Thunder Views: Westbrook triple-doubles, traveling violations, and Steven Adams

Steven Adams is awesome, and the Thunder are back! Turns out, putting Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George on the same team is going to a ton of fun. Who knew? After a slow start, shots started to fall and the Thunder got into a nice second half flow to ultimately beat the Knicks by 21. Russell Westbrook had his 80th career triple double, which is cool I guess. But Steven Adams plays really good defense, and that’s definitely cool. Spotlight It’s tempting to talk about the trio’s first regular season game together, but I would be doing an injustice if we didn’t first...
