In fact, it’s not far fetched to imagine a scenario where they miss the playoffs entirely. However, Larry Bird is confident in his team and does not plan on bottoming out this season. Read More »

This time, he made his first shot in Kevin Durant‘s face, and was good enough to drop 25 points (still only 9-for-33 shooting against OKC this year). But while the first half played out like a tape from the old And1 video game, the second half became a mismatch, and the Thunder went on to win 124-94. Read More »
