Mavericks look to extend winning streak against the Thunder

The Mavs head to OKC looking for their seventh straight win. What did the Thunder do over the offseason? Over the summer, OKC fired long-time (by NBA standards) head coach Scott Brooks, who took over the team in its inaugural season as the Thunder, and replaced him with Billy Donovan. But the team had an otherwise quiet offseason, just resigning Enes Kaner and Kyle Singler, the players the team acquired during a 2014 trade. What have the Thunder done lately? Staying put this summer made a lot of sense for the Thunder. They were expecting to return with a healthy Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka...

Thunder build a house of bricks, lose to Knicks 90-93

Westbrook had 34, but New York shot 60% from three. The Oklahoma City Thunder shot terribly, and met their demise tonight at the hands of the New York Knicks, 90-93. Russell Westbrook led all Thunder scorers with 34 points, but shot 2 of 10 from beyond the arc. None of Westbrook's teammates were better from three. Waiters was 0-6. Singler and Roberson were 0-3. Augustin and Ibaka were 0-2. Morrow was marginally better, going 1 of 3. But as a whole, the Thunder simply couldn't hit a shot from long range. Accordingly, the Thunder had trouble moving the ball most of the night. OKC's 12 assists...

Game Thread: Knicks at Thunder- 11/20/15

Hi! The Knicks start their four-game road trip tonight in Oklahoma City against the 7-5 Thunder. OKC will not have Kevin Durant, but they will have Russell Westbrook, who is very good and will score over 400 points if New York defends him like they defended Jeremy Lin in their last game. The Thunder frontcourt gives us another exciting matchup, too: Billy Donovan said Serge Ibaka will guard Porzingis tonight. — Steve Popper (@StevePopper) November 20, 2015 The Knicks are healthy and their lineup remains the same. Rotations and minutes will be interesting tonight, because they always...

Serge Ibaka's 3-point shooting shreds Wizards' game plan

The Wizards were willing to take their chances on Serge Ibaka from three-point range as long as they could limit Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Steven Adams is a game time decision on Sunday

He went through light contact drills today. Thunder center Steven Adams had to leave last Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls with some persistent back soreness. Today, according to Anthony Slater, Steven Adams was able to participate in some light contact drills. Tomorrow, Adams is considered a game time decision at home against the Suns. If Adams is unable to play, Enes Kanter will almost certainly see extended duty. There is no backup center, but Serge Ibaka will likely mop up whatever remaining minutes there are at the position. To replace Serge Ibaka's time at power forward, we...

The Downbeat #1766: Much Stifle Very Rudy

Don't Go-Bert. Rudy Gobert is now averaging 3.6 blocks a game.  That is good for 3rd most in the NBA, tied with Serge Ibaka.  He is turning into the monster that most thought he would be.  Rudy on offense has struggled a bit as he has tried testing his new skills that he worked on during the summer.  To his credit, most on the Jazz have struggled, with Gordon Hayward barely busting out of his slump against Denver.  Jazz will play the Grizzlies tonight.  Rudy seems to have a rivalry with the Gasol brothers.  We'll have to watch that block total tonight as he could be up for a big...

Thunder Film Room: Nick Collison is Mr. Physicality

He may have had 0 points last night, but his defensive contributions were invaluable. Okay, picture this. It's the third quarter, and the Spurs have scored on four of their last five possessions. All of San Antonio's scores have come in the paint. As such, the low post tandem of Enes Kanter and Serge Ibaka just wasn't working out. So what does Billy Donovan do to counteract this? He immediately subs in Steven Adams and Nick Collison for an injection of defensive energy. The strategy turned out to be a brilliant move on the defensive end, because Nick Collison had a hand in stopping four of...

2015-16 Thunder player preview: Serge Ibaka continues to develop

Expect less threes and more hooks. The Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to recover from a lost season, having missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Serge Ibaka, on the other hand, is looking to improve on yet another solid campaign. Why do I say that? Because of the Thunder's poor performance last season, Ibaka was asked to do more on the court. Most notably, Ibaka started to make the three a regular part of his repertoire. Ibaka averaged 3.2 attempts from beyond the arc in 2014-15. However, in each the five seasons before 2014-15, Ibaka averaged less than an attempt from...
