Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-23

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-23
The Thunder left Oklahoma City for a two-game California road trip hoping to carry the team's momentum out west. OKC spilt its previous 10 games before facing Golden State on Wednesday, including a 2-1 homestand in the last three contests.

"We have to do the same thing as we do at home," interim coach Scott Brooks said. "We have to play well, we have to play together, we have to play hard. There's no simple solution to winning home games.

"You have to do the same things you do at home on the road. We understand that you're not in a comfortable environment. You're usually in a hostile crowd."

The Thunder has shown a competitive streak away from the friendly confines. Though the team went into Oakland just 1-10 on the road since December, many games have been close.

"We just have to keep our composure, play with the same energy and stick with our game plan," forward Kevin Durant said. "If we do that we can win games on the road."

THUNDER 122, WARRIORS 121: Oklahoma City's fourth-quarter rally culminated with Jeff Green's jumper at the buzzer in Wednesday night's wild shootout at Golden State. The Thunder improved to 9-34 with its sixth win in the last 11 games.

Green scored 26, including the 16-foot turnaround that proved the difference. Kevin Durant scored 27 and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Thunder, which won just its third home game by outscoring the Warriors 33-26 in the fourth. Rookie point guard Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 30.

Stephen Jackson scored 29 and Corey Maggette added 26 for Golden State, which has lost twice to OKC this season. The Thunder finishes the two-game road trip Friday at the Los Angeles Clippers.
