Cavs' win streak ends in 103-94 loss to Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY: The Cavs were already without their biggest star Thursday and for at least a few scary minutes, appeared to lose a second. Kyrie Irving ultimately checked out fine, but the Cavs’ eight-game winning streak ended Thursday with a 103-94 loss at the Oklahoma City Thunder. LeBron James missed the game to rest a sore left knee, then Irving appeared to have left knee problems of his own when it buckled on him following a shot from Russell Westbrook. Westbrook’s knee collided with Irving’s late in the first half and Irving immediately collapsed to the court. He stayed down...

The Cavs are already playing without LeBron James, who is resting with a sore left knee. The game was tied 47 at the half.

Final Score: Westbrook, Durant help Thunder zap Bucks 114-101

The Thunder's pair of stars looked no worse for wear against Milwaukee.

Bucks vs. Thunder Preview: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back as Bucks land in OKC

The Bucks took advantage of a depleted Thunder team back in early November, slugging out an ugly 85-78 home win against an OKC squad missing Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Unfortunately, that sort of effort won't come close to being enough against a healthy Durant and Westbrook tonight in Oklahoma City, as the Thunder's returning stars have helped Scott Brooks' club win four of five games since a 3-12 start. The Bucks have of course been heading the other direction, losing four of five while compiling a record of just 1-8 against teams .500 and above. Westbrook has been particularly...

Thunder vs 76ers, final score: Oklahoma City toughs out 103-91 win over Philadelphia

Behind Russell Westbrook and the Thunder bench, OKC pulled out a road win over the moribund 76ers. Box Score | Liberty Ballers The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 103-91. Kevin Durant played in his 2nd game of the season, and his team's efforts helped earn him his first win of this year's campaign. It was an uneven affair, as the Thunder worked their way out to a double-digit lead early on but were not able to pull away from the single win Sixers, who hung in via offensive rebounding and a high level of energy. The Thunder were led by Russell Westbrook, who finished...

Three secret reasons behind the Thunder's loss to the Pelicans

We all know about Westbrook and KD's rustiness, as well as the emergence of Tyreke. But what about the stuff lurking behind the box score? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why the Thunder lost to the Pelicans. The Thunder's big two, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, took the team on their back in the fourth quarter. The duo proved to be rustier than we all thought, failing to utilize their teammates, succumbing to easy turnovers, and missing a few makeable shots. Meanwhile, the Pelicans got an amazing game out of Tyreke Evans, who showcased one of the best in and out moves...

Who gets minutes on a healthy Thunder team?

We combine early season stats, player skillsets, and lineup data to give you the best Thunder lineup projection this side of the Mississippi. With Russell Westbrook's return to action on Friday, the Thunder neared ever-closer to the full roster that's eluded them for the entire season. As it stands, only Kevin Durant, Perry Jones, and Mitch McGary remain out. All of them will probably see a return in the next couple of weeks, which means that the Thunder should be playing with a full roster some time in December. But who's going to be in the rotation? There's been lots of turnover since...
