Sounds of Thunder: The Oklahoma City Thunder, from pretender to contender in just seven days

Sounds of Thunder: The Oklahoma City Thunder, from pretender to contender in just seven days

In just one week, Sam Presti changed not only the prospects of the Thunder, but the perception of the franchise as well. Like many Oklahoma City Thunder fans, I woke up on June 30th expecting to read news about the big contract Russell Westbrook would be offered the next day and little else. I was running late, so I just had time to fire up the coffee pot, feed the dog (Chuck the Thunder Chi-weenie), and make a hasty breakfast before heading upstairs to work. Working from home has its obvious advantages, but sometimes, like June 30th, when I’m running late, I miss the day’s big sports...

How 1st-quarter fatigue affects Isaiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden

How 1st-quarter fatigue affects Isaiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden

A look at the impact of early-game minutes on late-game performance. Last season Isaiah Thomas joined the ranks of elite point guards in the NBA, earning All-NBA second team honors. “The King in the Fourth” became something of a folk hero in Boston. His clutch shooting made it seem like he never got tired, only improving as the game went on. So it might sound strange to focus on his 1st-quarter minutes—but it may be more important than you think. The idea actually starts with Russell Westbrook. It is well known that the Thunder are generally careful with Russell Westbrook’s...
