Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook is picking up where Kevin Durant left off.
The San Antonio Spurs have been here before.
The San Antonio Spurs were not going to believe Serge Ibaka was really injured until the Oklahoma City Thunder took the court in the opener of the Western Conference finals without their athletic big man.
In accepting his first MVP award, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant made a point of sharing the honor with those who made it possible.
Kevin Durant scored 42 points, including 21 in the fourth quarter, and the Oklahoma City Thunder secured the No. 2 playoff seed in the Western Conference, rallying from 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Detroit Pistons 112-111 Wednesday night.
It seems the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is in the holiday spirit. The union has voted to allow Cameron Rodriguez to keep the $20,000 he won after hitting a half-court shot at a recent Oklahoma City Thunder game.
The Oklahoma City Thunder’s four-game winning streak already includes a win over the Detroit Pistons.
Lebron James and the Miami Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games to capture the NBA Championship. As everyone knows, it was Lebron’s first and if you think the city of Cleveland isn’t still stinging over Lebron James ‘decision’ to seek greener pastures in Miami, think again.
With the NBA Finals now approaching game five and LeBron James now on the door step of his first NBA title, it raises the question what if the Heat somehow go on to lose in seven games to the Thunder?
Next time, the Oklahoma City Thunder will know the rule. Not knowing it might have cost them Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
