Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-11-28

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-11-28The Thunder opened a five-game homestand Friday night by beating the Milwaukee Bucks and early Rookie of the Year favorite Brandon Jennings. Oklahoma City's solid play on the road has contributed to its better-than-expected start.

The string of home games can put the Thunder in even better position in the loaded Western Conference.

"We're home for a week and a half, two weeks," forward Jeff Green said. "So hopefully we can take advantage."

The last two weeks could have broken the Thunder, but they didn't. OKC (9-7) played in Los Angeles twice, had a back-to-back in Florida and also made trips to Utah, San Antonio and Sacramento. The Thunder's road record is 5-4.

All the traveling hasn't allowed for much practice time. Coach Scott Brooks plans to change that during the homestand.

"This is an important time for us," he said. "We've been steady with our message. Regardless of how we're playing, we have to work on getting better. That's watching film, putting in work in shootarounds and practice. We need to utilize these days off to get better."

THUNDER 108, BUCKS 90: In a nationally televised meeting of two surprise teams that also happen to be among the youngest in the league, Oklahoma City rode the energy of its capacity crowd and walloped Milwaukee on Friday night. Kevin Durant didn't disappoint on the rare big stage for OKC, carving up the Bucks (8-6) with a game-high 33 points and 12 rebounds. Russell Westbrook had 20 points and seven assists.

Jeff Green added 17 points, rookie James Harden had 15 and defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha scored 13. Thunder defenders, led by Westbrook and Sefolosha, also did a job on Bucks rookie Brandon Jennings, holding him to 12 points.
