Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-02-11

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-02-11
The mantra from Thunder coach Scott Brooks sounds simple enough. Whenever he's asked about the team's improved play, the answer is invariably some derivation of a familiar theme.

"You're probably getting bored with this," Brooks said, "but whether we win or lose, we're going to still approach the next day as a day to get better."

Oklahoma City lost Tuesday night at the Lakers, dropping the Thunder's record to 10-10 since New Year's Eve. Not bad for a team that was in line for the worst record in league history at 3-29.

Brooks makes sure not to get too caught up in any one win. There's at least one "upset" just about every night in the NBA. The trick for the Thunder is getting to the point where those wins aren't considered upsets.

"Anybody can have a good game," Brooks said. "But it's hard to be consistent in this league and that's what makes real pros, pros."

LAKERS 105, THUNDER 98: Oklahoma City was able to hang tough, but it wasn't enough to pick up a rare road win Tuesday night in Los Angeles. Unable to overcome double-digit first-half deficit, the Thunder (13-39) fell to 3-21 away from home.

Kevin Durant continued his torrid scoring streak for Oklahoma City with 31 points, nearly matching Kobe Bryant's 34. Durant also added 10 rebounds, four assists and four steal. The five turnovers, though, didn't help.

Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook scored 17, grabbed nine boards and dished out seven assists. Jeff Green had 16 points and eight rebounds. Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom both had double-doubles for the Lakers.
