Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-12-06

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-12-06The Thunder have come a long way in the last few years, but they still have a long way to go until they're in the class with Boston. Oklahoma City had a firsthand lesson Friday night.

The Celtics are proven winners with a veteran cast led by Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. The Thunder is still trying to learn its way behind Kevin Durant and Co.

"Well, I admire a team that's had a six-game winning streak," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said after the loss to Boston. "They beat the Spurs on their home floor. This is the last game of their road trip and they came with a lot of energy, a lot of toughness, a lot of determination. They were focused.

"That's a competitive team that plays with spirit and that's a lesson that we can learn. We want to be like that one day. We're making our improvements day by day. It's going to take us some time to get there, there's no doubt that the way we work, the way our guys are built, they're wired for success because their competitive."

Oklahoma City wasn't competitive against the title contenders, but remain squarely in the Western Conference playoff race.

CELTICS 105, THUNDER 87: Kevin Garnett led seven Celtics in double-figures Friday night as Boston overwhelmed Oklahoma City on the road. The Thunder dropped to 5-5 at the Ford Center and 10-9 overall.

Boston led by a comfortable margin throughout and cruised in the fourth quarter. All five starters scored in double-figures and seven overall, including Marquis Daniels and Eddie Houston off the bench.

Kevin Durant was a one-man wrecking crew for Oklahoma City with 36 points, but he wasn't enough. Russell Westbrook had 15 points.
