Thunder vs Nuggets: Start time, TV schedule, game preview

Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports Broadcast Details: Start Time: 8 p.m. CT Broadcasters: Fox Sports Oklahoma and NBA League Pass It is too early to make any sweeping statements, but the Oklahoma City Thunder certainly qualify as one of the surprise teams of this young (and frequently postponed) season. The Thunder sit at an even 6-6, with a couple impressive wins on their resume. The Denver Nuggets have a nearly identical record at 6-7, and are also one of the “surprise teams” so far this year. However, Denver’s performance is the “my engine died” kind of...

Early Returns: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a point guard

Early Returns: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a point guard

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Shai has been excellent in the first twelve games of the season Before the season started, there was a lot of debate about Shai’s natural position. Gilgeous-Alexander played incredibly well at the shooting guard spot last season; he averaged a career high in points on good efficiency. In many ways, SGA was the perfect complement to Chris Paul in the back-court. Paul managed the game and focused on setting up teammates while Gilgeous-Alexander used his off-beat footwork to get downhill for looks at the rim. There was a good...

It was one of many hustle plays the Thunder forward made during a second-half run that slowly helped turn a 18-point deficit into a 127-125 overtime win. He finished with 21 points as well as a game-high six steals while running mate Shai Gilgeous-Alexander poured in 33 points with 10 assists, helping spearhead the team’s...

Lakers roll past Thunder 128-99

Photo by Zach Beeker/NBAE via Well, the game went about as expected. The Los Angeles Lakers are the defending champions while the Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the youngest teams in the league, which pretty much sums up how the Lakers were able to defeat OKC 128-99. Coming into tonight’s game, Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault mentioned before the game that one of the biggest priorities he had for his defense against LA was to limit their fast breaks. The Lakers are fourth in the league averaging 16.2 fast-break points a game. The Thunder did a good job of...

Hill: NBA’s new COVID protocols ‘don’t make sense’

Photo by Zach Beeker/NBAE via After the game on Tuesday, Oklahoma City Thunder’s George Hill, Hamidou Diallo, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander were each asked postgame on their thoughts on the new COVID-19 protocols that the NBA laid out Tuesday afternoon where the rules essentially became stricter. Each player gave different answers in a situation where there is no correct one. Hill would answer the question by being highly critical of the league’s logistics of tightening the rules in some areas but not acknowledging the fact that these players are sweating and playing...

Photo by Zach Beeker/NBAE via The Oklahoma City Thunder lost a tough one against the San Antonio Spurs 112-102. It felt like the Thunder let this one get away from them at the end, the team was not able to muster up enough offense in the fourth quarter and simply missed good looks. The team had seven players in double digit scoring, displaying just how well balanced the team’s offensive responsibilities are. The Thunder also settled for less three’s (7-of-26) and focused more on attacking the Spurs in the paint, as they do not have a true rim protector either....

Coming off the heels of scoring 25 points, 7 assists, and 10 rebounds, Shai followed up that performance with an equally fantastic game against the other team in New York.

Thunder ends Knicks’ 3-game win streak with 101-89 win

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Oklahoma City Thunder (4-4) snapped the New York Knicks’ three-game winning streak with a 101-89 win. Point blank, this was an ugly basketball between two of the worst offensive teams in the league. Neither team really maintained any offensive rhythm for long periods of time and the final score does not reflect how slow the game’s pace was. The fourth quarter did a good job at making the final score look prettier, but heading into the final 12 minutes, the score was at a lowly 69-63 Thunder lead. This was Shai...
