Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-26

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-26
The Thunder's spirits are at definite peak, and it's easy to see why. Oklahoma City went into Friday night's visit to the L.A. Clippers on its first serious roll since relocating.

In the previous 11 games, the Thunder had won six to triple its victory total on the season. Second-year forward Kevin Durant told the Daily Oklahoman that the team's confidence was at an all-time high.

"You could say that," Durant told the newspaper. "I think that we've gotten better. With the little streak we've had, we're feeling a little better. We've just got to continue to play like that."

Interim coach Scott Brooks, whose team continues to own the league's worst record, echoed those sentiments.

"We've preached all along that we have to continue to work," Brooks told the newspaper. "We know that we're playing good basketball and winning some games and playing better and learning how to win, but we're not there. We know there's going to be some times that we're going to be tested again."

CLIPPERS 107, THUNDER 104: Kevin Durant scored a career-high 46 points, but it wasn't enough as Oklahoma City fell just short in a battle of nine-win teams Friday night at Los Angeles. The Thunder (9-35) is 0-3 against the Clippers (10-32) this season.

Though Durant was the game's top scorer, Clippers rookie Eric Gordon came close to matching the Thunder forward with career-high 41 points. And unlike Durant, Gordon had help. Clippers forward Al Thornton scored a season-high 34.

None of Durant's teammates scored more than Jeff Green's 14. Russell Westbrook and Earl Watson had 11 points each. OKC had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Durant missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds.
