Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-14

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-14
There's no getting around the mental strain caused by all the losing. Oklahoma City remains on pace to finish with the worst record in NBA history.

"It's the most miserable season I've ever been a part of," forward Nick Collison said.

Interim coach Scott Brooks has tried to remind his team that the Thunder isn't the first team to struggle, and the misery doesn't last forever.

"Guys will recover, coaches will recover, but the only thing that you can count on in order to recover is you've got to keep believing and keep fighting and keep working and keep getting better," Brooks said. "Is that hard to do when you're having the start we're having? Absolutely, but you still have to go through it."

Collison understands what his coach is trying to say. That doesn't make it any easier.

"Hopefully we start winning and things will go a lot better," Collison said.

MAVERICKS 103, THUNDER 99: Dirk Nowitzki scored 46 as Dallas rallied from a nine-point deficit Saturday to nip a desperate Oklahoma City squad. The Thunder (2-22) dropped its sixth in a row despite playing another team close.

OKC's young trio of Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook carried the offensive load, combining for 66 points. The other six who played managed just 33 points.

The Mavs (13-9) won for the 11th time in 13 starts. Nowitzki's total was a season high. The only other Dallas player in double figures was sixth man Jason Terry with 28.
