Five Coaching Victories from the Thunder's loss to the Clippers

Scott Brooks isn't often applauded, but he should be after last night. Last night was probably one of the craziest games in recent memory. But hidden amongst the drama of Westbrook's injury was a tactically sound performance from our coach, Scott Brooks. Coaching two of the top 10 players in the world hasn't done Brooks a lot of favors in the eyes of the public, and it's rare that he gets recognized for his own accomplishments. But given his limited resources last night, Brooks did a really excellent job of managing what he had and putting his team in a position to win. Here's his five...

Clippers Eke Out Ugly Win in Home Opener, 93-90 over Oklahoma City Thunder

An already injury-depleted Thunder team lost Russell Westbrook too in the second quarter, but somehow OKC managed to keep it close and make a game out of it late, before a few timely plays allowed Los Angeles to prevent themselves from snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. Steve Ballmer likes excitement, right? Then his first regular season game as Clippers owner was perfect for him! Not really, though. This was an awful game and cringeworthy to watch at times (and I watched Warriors-Kings last night). After Portland rolled a shorthanded Thunder team last night in the Rose Garden, I...

Oklahoma City Thunder: Russell Westbrook injured, Thunder drops close one to Clippers

By Darnell MayberryLOS ANGELES — Only one thing could have sent the start of this Thunder season spiraling from bad to worse, and given the team’s recent string of misfortune maybe we shouldn’t even be surprised that it actually happened. But in the second game? You’ve got to be kidding. Russell Westbrook joined the comically-long list of injured Thunder players when he left Thursday’s 93-90 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers with a right hand injury.Read more on NewsOK.com

Oklahoma City Thunder notebook: Scott Brooks will not overuse Russell Westbrook

By Darnell MayberryConfusion quickly turned to criticism when Thunder coach Scott Brooks kept point guard Russell Westbrook parked on the bench to start the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s season-opening loss at Portland.

Russell Westbrook, Scott Brooks keep their words in the Thunder's loss to the Blazers

Darnell MayberryPORTLAND, Ore. — Almost everyone got caught up in the moment. And what a moment it was. An injury-ravaged Thunder team was on the road, in the season opener, with just nine healthy bodies, taking it to the high-powered Portland Trail Blazers.

Oklahoma City Thunder: Portland drops Thunder in season opener

By Darnell MayberryPORTLAND, Ore. — For three quarters, the Thunder flirted with the unthinkable. And in a matter of 12 minutes, a would-be storybook season opener suddenly turned sour, ultimately ending about how most expected it would in the first place. Despite a valiant and wildly entertaining effort from Russell Westbrook, the Thunder dropped a 106-89 decision at Portland on Wednesday night. Westbrook led his injury-ravaged squad with a game-high 38 points on 11-for-26 shooting. Read more on NewsOK.com
