Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-09

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-09
After getting blown out by 53 points in their previous two home games, the Thunder finally showed some fight before leaving for Wednesday's trip to Denver. Oklahoma City battled the Spurs, which shouldn't be surprising, before falling short in the fourth quarter.

"We did a good job with effort," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "We played with good energy and moved the ball. Down the stretch, they did what they do best. They executed and made some big plays. We tried, we scrambled, we fought, we clawed, but they made some big plays down the stretch."

OKC split the season series with San Antonio, winning the previous two meetings before the Tuesday's finale. Brooks said his team wasn't outworked, a good sign that they're still fighting and not checking out.

The Spurs also offer a lesson in continuity and execution.

"You can learn from their team when it comes down to big possessions," forward Nick Collison said. "They always get a good shot. They know what they want to do and they do it."

NUGGETS 122, THUNDER 112: Despite being competitive again, Oklahoma City lost its fourth in a row Wednesday at Denver. The Thunder dropped to 21-57 with four games left in the regular season.

Kevin Durant led the OKC with 31 points, with Jeff Green adding 24. The Thunder played San Antonio tough the previous night and put together another solid effort against the Nuggets.

Denver won the previous two meetings with game-winning shots from Carmelo Anthony in the closing seconds. Anthony paced the Nuggets in this one with 31 points.
