Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-20

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-20
Two cellar-dwellers met Wednesday night in Oklahoma City. The only

guarantee from the meeting of mediocrity was that one team would

double its win total.

Three weeks into the season, the Thunder and Clippers were sitting

with one victory apiece. Oklahoma City was hauling an eight-game skid,

having allowed 100 or more points in five straight games. For all the

Thunder's defensive problems, the offense has been abysmal. To

complicate matters, P.J. Carlesimo has been forced to juggle the

lineup due to injuries.

The Thunder got forward Chris Wilcox back only to have forward

Desmond Mason go down. The frontcourt rotation has yet to find its

rhythm. Other than Joe Smith, none of the other bigs have been


"I don't know what's the best combination -- Joe and whom is the

best big person combination for us," Carlesimo said. "We're still

trying to sort out a lot of things."

CLIPPERS 108, THUNDER 88: Oklahoma City had its losing streak

extend to nine with another poor performance Wednesday night at home.

In a battle of one-win teams, the Clippers pulled away in the second

half. The Thunder (1-11) was led by Kevin Durant's 18 points and

Damien Wilkins' 17. Oklahoma City, the worst-shooting team in the

league, led by six after the first period before it began to fall

apart in the second.

Cuttino Mobley had a season-high 23 points and a career-best seven

steals for the Clippers. Chris Kaman added a season-high 25 points and

14 rebounds.
