Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-13

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-04-13
Nothing like giving your all in your last game before the home folks. That's exactly what the Thunder did in beating Charlotte 84-81 on Friday.

"That was about as hard as a team could have possibly played," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. "Both teams played extremely hard. They battled and they fought. I'm proud of our guys' effort. I'm proud of the fact that they fought through adversity.

Part of that adversity was the Thunder's carelessness with the ball. Oklahoma City committed 24 turnovers, including nine from Russell Westbrook.

"Turnovers were a problem, but we overcame it," Brooks said. "Russell had a big turnover game, but he had zero turnovers in the fourth quarter. I think he had three or four assists; that's huge."

Brooks also praised his team's ability to lock down the Bobcats. Charlotte shot only 33 percent.

"Defensively it was about as good as we could play," Brooks said. "They finally got it. We played hard, the guys competed. Larry Brown is one of the best coaches in the history of the game, and the thing that I admire about him is that he coaches his team to play hard."

BUCKS 115, THUNDER 98: The road woes continued as Oklahoma City began its last trip of the season, falling Saturday at Milwaukee. The Thunder (22-58) are 7-32 away from home with two road games left.

Kevin Durant led five Oklahoma City players in double figures with 19 points. Shaun Livingston added 14 points. Rookie guard Kyle Weaver had 12 points and nine rebounds. Bucks forward Richard Jefferson was the game's high scorer with 35 points. Luke Ridnour scored 18, and Charlie Villanueva added 14 for Milwaukee.
