Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-11

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-11
The Thunder wrapped up the home portion of their first season in Oklahoma City on Friday night. The team and the fans formed a fast and emotional bond despite the struggles on the court.

"They have embraced our players and that's great to see," OKC coach Scott Brooks said. "When we all came over in July, we didn't know what to expect. It's basically like we all were traded the same day.

"And we've all felt right at home from Day 1, and it's not because we're used to moving and the transition is easy. It's because the fans and the city has really embraced us."

The Thunder have held their own at the Ford Center, especially over the second half of the season. OKC picked up wins against Utah, San Antonio, Detroit and Portland in the friendly confines.

"We have a great home-court advantage," Brooks said. "Our crowd's terrific."

THUNDER 84, BOBCATS 81: Oklahoma City finished off its inaugural home schedule on a high note with Friday night's win over Charlotte. The Thunder (22-57) went 15-26 at the Ford Center.

Kevin Durant led four Thunder starters in double figures with 20 points. Nenad Krstic scored 19, and Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook each had 10 each. OKC also out-rebounded the Bobcats 50-29.

D.J. Augustin scored 20 to lead five Charlotte players in double figures. OKC concludes the season with a three-game road trip beginning Saturday at Milwaukee.
