Digging Out

Last night against the Spurs, the Thunder attempted to dig themselves out of a gigantic hole but came up just short. The Thunder trailed by 20 after the first and San Antonio's lead grew as large as 26 before the Thunder came roaring back. OKC outscored the Spurs in each of the second, third, and forth quarters; but not by enough to claim the game. The Thunder pulled within 2 points with 30 seconds to play, but that was as close as it got.

For the Thunder, Jeff Green led the way with 33 points. Kevin Durant had a double double with 28 points and 13 rebounds. Unfortunately we didn't get much production from the other three starters as Westbrook, Wilkins, and Petro had 2, 3, and 4 points respectively. Nick Collison led the bench with 10 points and Earl Watson and Desond Mason also contributed 9 and 8.

This loss was the Thunder's 7th in a row putting them halfway towards tying the franchise record (again). Unfortunately they've only got two games in the next seven on the "easy" side: the Clippers tomorrow and the Wizards in a week and a half. The Thunder need to show up for all 4 quarters in both of those games if they are going to get some much needed wins.
