Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-03-20

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-03-20
For a team not going to the playoffs, the next best thing is playing spoiler. The Thunder is doing a pretty good job of taking on that role in March.

Oklahoma City owns five victories this month, with three against teams with postseason aspirations. Of the last 16 games, including Wednesday night against Chicago, 13 are against playoff contenders.

"We're just looking forward to going out and finishing the season strong and get victories and try to become a better team as the season goes along," point guard Russell Westbrook said.

The Thunder scored arguably their most impressive win Monday over San Antonio. The Spurs had beaten Oklahoma City in the last meeting between the clubs in mid-December. Gregg Popovich has noticed the difference since then.

"They're significantly better, in a variety of ways," San Antonio's coach said. "A lot of it is the (improvement) of the people they have and the time they've spent together. It's a growth process. They're definitely a better team than they were then." BULLS 103, THUNDER 96: Unable to make stops, Oklahoma City had its four-game home winning streak snapped Wednesday night against Chicago. The Thunder (19-49) were beat in just about every phase of the game after a solid start. Rallying from an early eight-point deficit, the Bulls shot 52.5 percent and out-rebounded Oklahoma City 44-31. In the battle of prized rookie point guards, Chicago's Derrick Rose outscored Russell Westbrook 25-15.

Kevin Durant paced Oklahoma City with 28 points and also grabbed six boards. He missed a three-pointer in the last 30 seconds that would have tied the score. Jeff Green added 18 points.
