Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-15

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-15
The Thunder can't seem to catch a break. In the opinion of Desmond Mason, Oklahoma City isn't just facing the other team out on the court.

After the loss to Dallas, Mason said that calls just don't seem to go the Thunder's way. For a team with little margin for error, especially in close games, whistles can spell the difference.

"Down the stretch, we are in every single game in the fourth quarter and we are starting to get the short end of the stick," Mason said.

He pointed out a non-call against Kevin Durant that could have led to two free throws in a tie game. Mason added that Dirk Nowitzki gets away with illegal screens.

"Every single screen that Dirk set (Saturday) was illegal, he stuck his butt out a little bit," Mason continued. "Some guys and I talk about it, it was never called. Some guys were hit on the arm early in the game.

"Again, you can't take anything away from Dallas, they played a big-time game and we played a big-time game. It is unfortunate that we play that hard and then down the stretch things don't go our way from that standpoint."

SPURS 109, THUNDER 104: Oklahoma City mounted a furious second-half rally, but it wasn't enough. The Thunder dropped another close one Sunday night at San Antonio to extend their losing streak to seven.

The Spurs (15-8) raced out to a 20-point lead in the first quarter that eventually hit 26 before halftime. The long ball nearly buried the Thunder, as San Antonio drilled seven three-pointers in the opening period.

Jeff Green and Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 33 and 28 points, respectively. Tony Parker scored 22 points, and Tim Duncan had 20 points and 12 rebounds as San Antonio won its sixth straight.
