Video: Andre Roberson Air Balls FT Yet Again

Andre Roberson

The Thunder didn’t need a second-quarter free throw from second-year guard Andre Roberson last night. OKC stomped the Magic by 28 after dropping 79 on them in the first half, but Roberson’s air ball from the charity stripe was the second time it’s happened this season, and his struggles from the line are not a bad sign for the second-year guard moving forward.

Video: Kevin Durant’s Near Triple-Double In 28 Mins.

Kevin Durant

To say the Oklahoma City Thunder got off to a blazing start in the first half against the Orlando Magic on Sunday would be a bit of an understatement. They essentially performed in video game mode scoring a ridiculous 79 points in the first half – the most since the franchise moved to OKC – on 73 percent (!) shooting. They were led by the superstar tandem of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. While Westbrook wasn’t busy coasting to the rim with a sick reverse slam and boggling our minds with an incredible mid-air pass, Durant was dazzling his way to a near triple-double in just 28 minutes on the court.

Video: Russell Westbrook Gives Short, Contentious Post-Game Interview

Russell Westbrook

People react differently to personal accomplishments. Some jump for joy. Others shed happy tears. And there’s group that acts as if nothing happened at all. But Russell Westbrook is a whole different kind of man altogether. After notching a historic triple-double of 17 points, 15 rebounds, and 17 assists in his team’s big win over the league-leading Golden State Warriors, the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar gave a quiet and openly hostile post-game interview to reporters.

Report: OKC-Nets Talks Falter; Rockets Are Now Interested In Brook — Huh?

Brook Lopez, Dwight Howard

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Nets-Thunder talks have disintegrated because for Brooklyn, “there was nothing we liked.” But Woj also said that Houston had inquired about Brook Lopez‘s services, which is weird because they already have a center; his name is Dwight Howard — in case you’ve forgotten about him during his disappointing opening half to the 2014-15 season.

Report: Three-Team Trade Nixed, But OKC Could Still Get Brook Lopez

Kendrick Perkins, Brook Lopez

Welp, it seems the Nets weren’t interested in Brooklyn’s Born Ready. After reports surfaced last night of a proposed three-team swap sending Brook Lopez to Oklahoma City, Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte and Lance Stephenson to Brooklyn, it fell apart today because of Brooklyn’s unwillingness to take on Stephenson. But the Thunder are determined to get Brook and his fragile foot, and they could still receive the Nets center in exchange for Kendrick Perkins. You read that right. Read More »
