Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-11-15

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-11-15The Thunder began a difficult stretch of four games in four cities in five nights with perhaps their most impressive win of the season Saturday in San Antonio. Talk about getting off on the right foot.

Oklahoma City, which climbed back over .500 at 5-4, hopes to carry that momentum into Sunday night's home game with the Clippers. The Thunder beat the Clippers in Los Angeles three nights before hitting San Antonio.

Oklahoma City hits the road again for two more games against playoff teams from last season, heading to Miami and Orlando for a Tuesday-Wednesday back-to-back. Maybe the Thunder's youth will come in handy.

"People are going to get tired, playing four games in five nights, especially playing great teams like Miami, Orlando, the Clippers and San Antonio, if you give it all you've got," Jeff Green said. "Being young helps a little bit. You just have to take care of your body, eat right and get your rest."

The Thunder must have been living right on their way to South Texas, but the team does seem to take it up a notch or two against the Spurs. Going back to last season, Oklahoma City is now 3-2 in its last five games against San Antonio.

THUNDER 101, SPURS 98: In a building known for its Big Three, it was the trio from Oklahoma City that came up huge Saturday night. Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook handed San Antonio its first home loss of the season in the return of Tim Duncan and Tony Parker.

Durant scored 25, while Green and Westbrook both notched double-doubles. Green had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Westbrook tallied 19 points and 11 assists.

Oklahoma City (5-4) has won two straight, with both coming on the road. Duncan and Parker were back in the lineup after missing two games each with ankle injures.

Duncan had 22 points and 10 rebounds but took just one shot in the fourth quarter. Parker missed a 3-point heave at the buzzer.
