Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-10

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-10
It's not easy for a team with the league's worst record to hit a new low. Especially one that already fired its coach and has suffered through a pair of a franchise-record losing streaks.

Well, the Thunder may have sunk to new depths with a 42-point beating at the hands of woeful Minnesota Wednesday. The Timberwolves had the NBA's second-poorest record until their recent winning streak.

"We feel, to a man, that that's not us," interim coach Scott Brooks said of the blowout loss. "That's not how we want to portray how we want to play. That was just a bad display of basketball, effort-wise. Technique wasn't there, effort wasn't there."

Scott added the players have put the embarrassing setback behind them and are moving forward. No sense in reliving it.

"We have to play with more pride, no doubt," Brooks said. "You can't expect to go out and just play the game. You have to play with more passion. We have to play with more desire."

ROCKETS 98, THUNDER 96: Kevin Durant rimmed out a potential game-tying jumper with less than 10 seconds left and Houston star Tracy McGrady followed the miss with a pair of free throws that proved the difference in the Rockets' narrow win Friday night at Oklahoma City. The Thunder, winners in two of the previous three homes games, dropped to 5-32.

Down as much as 15 in the first half, OKC rallied in the fourth quarter to tie the game on several occasions but never took the lead. The Thunder shot it well (48 percent) and out-rebounded Houston 44-31, but was hurt by 21 turnovers.

Durant led OKC with 27 points, six rebounds and five assists. Russell Westbrook added had 15 points and six assists. McGrady led five Rockets in double figures with 26 points.
