Steven Adams On Living In OKC: “It’s Really Weird”

Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Durant

Game 2 between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Oklahoma City Thunder turned out to be a thrilling spectacle of basketball.

With the score at 99-97 in favor of Memphis, OKC had one final chance to either win the game or force overtime. Russell Westbrook chucked up a prayer from downtown, but came up short.

Nene, Kevin Durant, Trevor Booker

The Wizards finally ended the Kevin Durant onslaught on Saturday night, terminating the Thunder’s 10-game winning streak and forcing KD into an uncharacteristic (and unheard of in 2014) 8-for-21 night shooting the ball. After the game, Wizards center Nene spoke glowingly of Durant before taking a dig at him. He also totally throws Kendrick Perkins under the bus, but that’s par for the course these days. Read More »
