Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-02-25

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-02-25
Malik Rose may be new to the Thunder, but he's been impressed by the young core and its willingness to learn. Though the veteran forward is expected to add some leadership to the locker room, Rose said that's not a quality lacking in Oklahoma City.

"Honestly, right now they seem to have all the right pieces internally," Rose said. "They work hard, they listen, people are able to talk to them and approach them. I saw Desmond Mason go over and talk to (Kevin Durant) after a play he made in Golden State and he took it well.

"He shook his head, went back to the huddle. That really impressed me right there. I'm sure these coaches have been telling them things they need to know, but as time goes on I'll add my two cents if it's needed and we'll go for there."

The Thunder went into Tuesday against the Lakers with a five-game losing skid, while easing two new players -- Thabo Sefolosha and Rose -- into the rotation. Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks isn't the type to look at that as a problem.

"That's the thing that I enjoy in this league -- you always have something going on," he said. "We have to work a couple of new guys in, we've got a tough game coming up. It's just part of the NBA. You have games and you have circumstances that you have to fight through. Our two guys, they pick things up quick."

LAKERS 107, THUNDER 93: Kobe Bryant's late spurt helped the Lakers hold on to the win over Oklahoma City. The Thunder has dropped six straight to fall to 13-44.

Bryant was able to rack up 10 of his game-high 36 in a three-minute stretch of the fourth quarter, and scored 15 in the period. Bryant's effort helped offset the 32 points from Thunder forward Kevin Durant.

OKC rookie Kyle Weaver followed his career-best 19-point outing by scoring 16, despite going from the starting lineup back to the bench. Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook scored 14.
