Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-29

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-29
The Thunder might want to consider petitioning the NBA to schedule Minnesota more than four times a season. Winless against the rest of the NBA, Oklahoma City owns its only win against the Timberwolves and nearly doubled that total Friday night.

Nearly. Minnesota overcame a Thunder lead in the final seconds to send OKC to its 14th consecutive loss, tying the franchise record set in Seattle from Dec. 31, 2007 to Jan. 27, 2008. The first win over Minnesota, 88-85 on Nov. 2, appeared to be the start of some promising trends. The Wolves were the second consecutive opponent held to less than 90 points, but in the 14 losses since, OKC has allowed 105 points per game.

The Thunder came into the game smarting from a 35-point beatdown at Cleveland. Veteran forward Joe Smith, however, located a positive in the rout.

"How to come out and jump on somebody and how to maintain a lead," Smith said. "Even though it was in their favor, they showed what good teams do. How they're able to come out and jump on you and put you away and not let you back into the game. That's what they did to us."

OKC has squandered a few double-digit leads this season.

WOLVES 105, THUNDER 103: Despite one of the team's most balanced scoring efforts of the season, Oklahoma City continued on its road of misery with Friday night's home loss to lowly Minnesota. The Thunder has lost 14 straight games, matching the franchise record for futility set last season in Seattle. OKC fell despite a fourth-quarter comeback that was undone by Mike Miller's jumper at the buzzer.

Starting forwards Kevin Durant and Jeff Green each scored 22 for the Thunder, with Chris Wilcox adding 21 off the bench. Russell Westbrook had 15 points and eight assists.
