Preseason Action

Postby Durant35 on Sat Apr 20, 2013 1:42 pm

2013-2014 NBA Preseason

Image Image
Image Image


The Thunder finishes the Preseason with the record of 6-1, with the loss coming from the Western Powerhouse Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center, California. We saw great strides and potential for the three Thunder rookies Alex Len of Maryland, Marcus Smart of the Oklahoma State University and Mason Plumlee of Duke University. Expect some action with them during the season. Free Agent acquired J.J. Redick and Dominic McGuire impacted the roster immediately by providing bench scoring and defensive lockdown respectively.

RUMOR: Thunder puts Nick Collison, Perry Jones and Hasheem Thabeet to the block.

Postby Durant35 on Sun Apr 21, 2013 4:25 pm

Thunder acquire Tobias Harris

Image


Just a day before the season starts, the Oklahoma City Thunder again acquire young talent by trading Nick Collison and Perry Jones for Tobias Harris. Tobias Harris is a Forward/Center who was traded from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Orlando Magic just after his rookie season. He averaged 28.4 MPG, 13.5 PPG and 6.3 RPG during his tenure with the Magic. Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic gets an intriguing talent in Perry Jones, and a veteran presence with championship experience in Nick Collison, who is already in his 9th season when the 2013-2014 NBA Season starts.

OKC gets:
F/C Tobias Harris

ORL gets:
F/C Nick Collison
F Perry Jones
2015 2nd Rnd DP



Simulated Game:

OKC @ DAL: 86-69 W

GAME RECAP | GAME STORY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (35 PTS, 5 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL and 3 BLK)

CHESAPEAKE ENERGY ARENA - Rugged and defensive. That was the game tonight. Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 35 points during a 5-minute span at the last minutes of the game. He took over after Memphis Guard Jerryd Bayless tied the game at 90 with six minutes left. Serge Ibaka had a disappointing night, finishing with 4 points and 11 rebounds. Russell Westbrook had 16 points on 6-of-14, 5 rebounds and 8 assists.

Reggie Jackson became the spark of the offense after Westbrook sat out after getting two early fouls in the opening quarter. The third-year point guard scored 15 points on 6 shots and nabbed 5 rebounds while dishing out 4 assists in 16 minutes of action. The rookies played random minutes during the second quarter, but were clearly overplayed due to their lack of experience in the NBA land.

Alex Len had 6 points and 2 rebounds, Mason Plumlee had 3 points, and Marcus Smart had 2 points.

[6-0] Week 2: Home and the Road

Postby Durant35 on Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:13 pm

Thunder go 4-0 on Week 2


OKC: | 30 | 33 | 28 | 30 | 121
UTA: | 16 | 17 | 25 | 27 | 85

Starting things off at home, Sunday against the Utah Jazz, the Thunder easily dominated the now-Paul Millsap-less Jazz, who was traded to the Timberwolves before the season. Kevin Durant had 29 points on 10 shots, while grabbing 12 rebounds. Westbrook was spectacular by scoring 37 points, dominating both sides of the floor with 2 steals. What's amazing is that the Thunder had a season-low 6 turnovers for the whole game. The ball movement was great and everybody was involved in the offense.

OKC: | 33 | 25 | 26 | 25 | 109
IND: | 15 | 19 | 28 | 22 | 84

Again, the Thunder had dominated struggling playoff team. Kevin Durant hit 10 of his 21 shots, nabbing 27 points and 11 rebounds. His second consecutive double-double for the season. Not much can be said around here.

OKC: | 23 | 19 | 28 | 20 | 90
PHX: | 24 | 24 | 27 | 14 | 89

This match was clearly unexpected. Serge Ibaka was the contributor to the floor and scored 7 of his team-high 20 points during the fourth quarter and made the bank shot on the left wing with 1:35 left to seal the game at 90-89. Phoenix then would go scoreless in those final seconds due to the hustle and defensive mentality of the Thunder.

OKC: | 27 | 21 | 21 | 24 | 93
SEA: | 27 | 17 | 16 | 24 | 84

Nostalgia after a bunch of long seasons. The Oklahoma City Thunder was heavily booed on the floor. Kevin Durant shot 8-of-20. Westbrook had a team-high 21 points on 13 shots. Rookie Alex Len stepped up and had 10 points and 2 rebounds, while Serge had the same number of points, but grabbed 7 more rebounds. And nearly half of those were offensive rebounds which created second chance points.


RECAP:
It has certainly been thrilling to see the Thunder go 6-0 during the early season, but we have seen spurts of the Thunder struggling, mostly on the road. Maybe they're bored? Or they just got fatigued?

phpBB [video]


GAME RECAP | GAME STORY |TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (38 PTS, 4 REB, 4 AST adn 3 BLK)

Dominance. Block here. Block there. Block everywhere. Dunk here. Dunk there. And it goes on and on and on. The Thunder never stopped to look back and got it rolling during the fourth, going on an early 20-7 run to take over the game. There were some instances that the Thunder look lost, but was immediately taken away by the scoring prowess of Kevin Durant, who scored 10 of his 38 during the fourth.

Westbrook also scored 27 and dished out 10 assists, despite LaMarcus Aldridge's explosion of 22 points on 10-15 shooting and 10 rebounds. Serge Ibaka also spurted and started grabbing every rebound, hounding it like a fully grown pit bull.He scored 12 points and nabbed a season-high 17 rebounds.

[8-0] Thunder with the close match against GSW

Thunder emerge victorious, 119-118

GAME RECAP | GAME STORY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Russell Westbrook (26 PTS, 3 REB, 17 AST and 2 STL)

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA - The Thunder dug a hole and got through. After letting the Warriors get an 8-0 run during the end of the first, the Thunder found themselves in an abyssal 39% from the floor. The Thunder struggled mightily on the offensive end, but came back during the fourth, where they lit up the Warriors for 29 points and limited them to 18 points on 7-20 shooting. They had lived from the free throw line, hitting 24 of their 25 attempts. Oklahoma City also turned it around by attempting only 89 shots and making 44, and scoring over a hundred points.

GAME RECAP | GAME STORY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (32 PTS, 11 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL and 1 BLK)

The Denver Nuggets just watched as their lead crumble and bit by bit getting destroyed by the Thunder's Kevin Durant, who scored 14 straight points during the fourth quarter in the final minutes of the game. The go-ahead three-pointer with 20 seconds left on the clock sealed the game, as the Nuggets couldn't get their final shot attempt to go with 8 seconds left.

The Thunder Forward scored 32 points on 13 shots. Meanwhile, Westbrook the sidekick was all over the floor, finishing with 18 points, 3 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 steals. Serge Ibaka had a season-high 20 points on 10 shots and nabbed his usual 8 rebounds and 2 assists. JJ Redick was again a no show, scoring 4 points and grabbing 1 rebound.

J.J. Redick Status

Postby Durant35 on Mon May 06, 2013 3:19 am

Several Thunder Players Unhappy

Image


With the way things are going, it's hard to believe that some players are unhappy. Namely JJ Redick, who claims that he hasn't been used by the Thunder right. "I'm a stats guy, and the way things are going on, I don't like it." Rumors have been going around that the Thunder are willing to let go of the Duke Sharpshooter in exchange for a scorer off the bench, and an improvement over the 2-spot. "The weakest link Oklahoma City's got is the Shooting Guard spot." Charles Barkley stated, "They have improved on the low post offense, but their backcourt has been hideous." he added.

Re: [10-0] Thunder Up | JJ Troubles. Winning Streak!

Postby Mark. on Mon May 06, 2013 9:01 am

Hmmm I can't remember the plays I run for him, I will have a look tonight when I get home from work, but basically it is the one where the SF and SG start on each wing, then run off low picks at the baseline and curl-cut up to the opposite 45, usually one gets open for a jumper. Should work a treat with both KD and JJ.

Other than that he is pretty good in the PnR too as he has decent passing (or should if you have a reasonably up to date roster). If you can run a 2/3 pick with him and KD that could be deadly too.

He certainly isn't an ISO guy though.

GAME RECAP | GAME STORY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (34 PTS, 12 REB, 4 AST and 1 BLK)

With the way things are progressing, the Thunder are again on pace for being the powerhouse everybody has imagined. Kevin Durant led a game-high 34 points en route to their eleventh consecutive win. Despite the close game, the Oklahoma City Thunder did not let the opposing team take the lead, as they led the game all the way, and had as much as 23 in the middle of the second quarter.

"Everybody did their job and hit good shots." Scott Brooks told the media. After posting another double-double with his efficient performance, the three-time scoring champion Kevin Durant stated "We're definitely in the groove tonight, but we're far from perfect. We've got to get better."

Knicks break Thunder's streak, 108-105

GAME RECAP | GAME STORY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Carmelo Anthony (25 PTS, 12 REB, 3 AST, 1 BLK and 1 STL)

And there goes the Thunder's streak. Longest since it's arrival in the Oklahoma land. With a fraction of a second left, Carmelo Anthony drained a three-pointer, giving them a 3-point lead after the game was tied by Kevin Durant's and-1 layup. The famous Madison Square Garden suddenly jumped for joy, as their home team won against a legit title contender who boasted an impressive 11-game winning streak before the match.

The Thunder were very impressive during the game, and Kevin Durant exploded for 40 points, but was struggling on the floor. He shot 14-of-33, good for 42.4%, which is clearly below his standards. He also notched 4 rebounds and dished out an assist. Russell Westbrook had 24, 3 and six. In someway, the Thunder were still missing something.

Serge Ibaka had difficulty finding open looks, despite being guarded by Amare Stoudamire, who's past his prime. The Knickerbocker Forward scored 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting.

So, for the challenge.

1. 11 Games
2. 28.6 PPG (315 PTS)
3. 8.5 APG (93 AST)
4. 1.8 BPG (20 BLKS)

Woogie98 missed #3 by 0.2, so I'm giving him a .5 for effort. :lol:

Woogie98 - 0.5

Thunder, Durant hold off Nets, 103-95

GAME RECAP | GAME SUMMARY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (36 PTS, 9 REB and 3 AST)

BARCLAYS CENTER - The Oklahoma City Thunder were able to hold off the Nets, as their opponent made a 8-0 rally which trimmed their lead to 3. "We got the stops after they got hot, KD hit some big shots and Russ too." said Scott Brooks, during the post-game interview. Thunder Guard Russell Westbrook had 20 points along with 10 assists as the Thunder down the Nets in their home.

Serge Ibaka struggled from the field, converting only 30% of his 10 attempts, prompting Scott Brooks to sit him in the final minutes of the game and let the others go to work. Marreese Speights, Center, fouled out of the game with 2:46 left in the game. Rookie Alex Len was in Tulsa, and Kevin Durant went out of his way and played the 5-spot.

"It was tough man, the battles down low were physical, and you hafta have a strong footing playing in there." said Durant, who scored his team's final 6 points. "He knows what he's doing, and won't back down. I know KD, I've been playing with him my whole career." added Russell Westbrook.

BEAT the HEAT!

Postby Durant35 on Wed May 15, 2013 12:45 pm

Westbrook's career-high carries Thunder past Heat

phpBB [video]


GAME RECAP | GAME SUMMARY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Russell Westbrook (46 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST and 3 STL)

It would seem that the Heat were about to steal this one away from the Thunder, who gave a strong performance. They finished the night hitting 53% of their shots and out scored the Heat in the final minutes of the game, sealing it with a 10-3 run, all from Russell Westbrook. The Heat had no answer to the Point Guard's fiery, intense emotion that was showcased throughout the whole game.

The Oklahoma City Thunder Guard posted a career-high 46 points on 18-of-26 and got to the line 9 times, hitting all of them. Kevin Durant notched his usual 31 points, despite the Heat's Defensive-specialist Shane Battier guarding him. He hit more than 50%, going 13 of 25 and had a 3x3, adding 3 offensive rebounds, 3 steals and 3 blocks. He also had 4 assists.

Serge Ibaka was nowhere felt on the field, as he shot poorly and scoring 5 points, while nabbing 9 rebounds.

Westbrook huge. HE really brings that special element to the OKC offense (as evidenced IRL!)

Yeah. Westbrook's definitely needed by the Thunder. He sometimes becomes by first "go-to" guy during clutch since he draws double teams.

Durant's 67 points carry Thunder past Pelicans

phpBB [video]


GAME RECAP | GAME SUMMARY | TEAM STATS


Player of the Game: Kevin Durant (67 PTS, 6 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL, 2 BLK and 7 TOS in 39 MIN)

MINI BOXSCORE

Well, where do I start? Let me go with Kevin Durant scoring 50 points in 36 minutes? Yes, that's definitely insane. The last guy to do this was Kobe Bryant back when he scored his career-high 81 points, with 53 coming from the first three quarters. Durant scored his final 17 points on a 20-7 run that sealed the game at 130-104. "I'm not gonna lie. I knew I had 50 points during the third quarter." said Durant.

"First of all, Congrats brodie. About the game, we let him have fun," said Westbrook, "I told him go get that career-high. I told him to keep shooting and I guess he did." he added. Westbrook himself scored 35 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and had 7 assists. He also had 2 steals and a block. He shot an efficient 16-of-23 from the field. "This is it. KD has evolved again." said Brooks, who was stunned like a fan as he saw Durant make those shots.

"It was definitely easy for him, to score 60 on 26 shots, while shooting over 50%. I can never do that in my life." he added. Serge Ibaka also had a second quarter spurt, where he scored all of his 7 points, whilst grabbing 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and his customary 3 blocks. When asked about his teammate's 60 point game, "It's definitely easy for him. He already reached the 60-point mark two times, last season and today."
