Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-11

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-11
The Thunder tied an unsavory franchise record with 14 consecutive losses earlier this season. On Wednesday, the team set one outright that it would rather not own.

Oklahoma City went into Wednesday night against Memphis having lost nine straight at home, tying the franchise record within one season set by the 1967-68 Seattle SuperSonics. By losing to the Grizzlies, the new mark of 10 now resides in Oklahoma City. Memphis is the only team the Thunder (2-21) has beaten in the last five weeks. But since beating the Grizzlies, Oklahoma City has lost another five in a row. The margin of defeat during that stretch is 7.4 points. That marked a solid improvement from the 13.6-point margin during the 14-game skid. The Thunder nearly avoided matching the record for home losses Monday, when Kevin Durant led a furious fourth-quarter rally that came up short against Golden State.

"We let them get up by 20," Durant said. "In this league, when you get down by 20, it's hard to come back. We made a run at them late, but we fell just a little bit short. We have to work harder and get better."

GRIZZLIES 108, THUNDER 102: Oklahoma City squandered a 21-point lead and dropped its fifth straight, and 10th in row at home, Wednesday night against Memphis. Rudy Gay led the Grizzlies with 22 points.

The Thunder seemed to be in great position to snap their latest skid by pulling out to a 51-30 lead in the second quarter. Memphis finished the first half with an 18-4 run before overtaking Oklahoma City in the fourth quarter.

Thunder scoring leader Kevin Durant led the team with 28 points. Russell Westbrook scored 15 and Jeff Green added 13. Joe Smith, Desmond Mason and Nick Collison each scored 10 off the bench.
