Thunder 3-point shooting coming up big

This is a league where you live and die by the three. It started with the Warrior’s dynasty and it has finally filtered down to the rest of the association.

Oklahoma City, though, isn’t considered a “deep threat.” Sure, there’s Paul George… that’s about it. Shooters is something that always has been a question mark. With the absence of Alex Abrines, the Thunder’s three-point shooting woes have been glaring to say the least.

In the 2018 part of the schedule Oklahoma City ranked 30th in 3-point shooting (32.2 percent). Only George and Jerami Grant shot above 33 percent during that time frame. Folks like Russell Westbrook and Terrance Fergusons hot under 30 percent.

There’s been a large changing of the guard with the emergence of Ferguson’s deep ball threat and Patrick Patterson finding his groove. Since the start of the new year, Oklahoma City hits 41.1 percent of their threes, only second to San Antonio’s 42.5 percent.

Patterson leads Oklahoma City at 48.6 percent shooting. Dennis Schröder at 44.7 percent. In fact, there are five Thunder players who see at least 14 minutes per game shooting over 40 percent from three.

None of the three-point shooting was more evident than in the 2018 portion. They shot under 28 percent in losses and 35 percent in wins. In the 2019, They’re shooting almost 40 percent in losses and 43.5 percent in victories.

If the Thunder can add in Alex Abrines back into the fold whenever his personal issues are done, the Thunder will be adding another shooter who’s a career 37 percent shooter. It spreads the floor and provides people like Steven Adams space to work inside.

They’re not going to hit 41 percent for the remainder of the year. It just doesn’t fit the makeup of this team. Which is to score off their defense’s suffocating manner. It frees up a lot of opportunities, though. As we saw in the win over Memphis.

They played zone, they packed the paint,” Billy Donovan said. “They really were not concerned about matchups at all. Sometimes you have to take what the defense gives you.”

Oklahoma City finally forced the Grizzlies out of the paint after taking 44 threes and were able to explode in the second half.

If the Thunder are going to go far in the Western playoffs, it’ll be on the back of not just the superstars, but also the three-point shooting.

Thunder take care of business, beat Grizzlies 117-95

Russell Westbrook had another triple-double and Paul George led everyone in scoring as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies 117-95 on Thursday night.

Memphis, without a handful of players as they were very active at the trade deadline, only played eight players and suited 10. It was enough to scare the Thunder in the first half, but the second half, the Thunder’s depth and tenacity took over.

Memphis led 53-51 at the break and it almost felt as if the Thunder were going to once again play down to their competition. They were going to struggle in a game where they were favored by 13½ coming into the game.

The third quarter magic fixed that.

Oklahoma City outscored Memphis 32-19 and it was off to the races. They led by as many as 17 in the third quarter before Memphis would fight it back to single digits on two occasions. Westbrook and George did their magic and kept the Grizzlies at a comfortable distance for the remainder.

Oklahoma City shot a lot of threes in the win. They nailed 17-of-44 from the field, 38 percent. A large part of the threes came in the first half and it’s what Memphis was giving the Thunder. They would run zone, clog the paint and force the Thunder to beat them from deep. It’s what happened. The Thunder knocked down 11 in the first half and six in the second half. You don’t typically want a team like the Thunder to take that many threes but sometimes you have to take what the defense is giving you. The made threes opened up the paint and the scoring exploded in the second half.

Westbrook finished with 15 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. He now has the longest triple-double streak of his career and is one short of Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA record of nine straight set in 1968. Westbrook’s career tally is now at 125 career triple-doubles. He’s done 21 this year alone, which is the 10th most in a single season.

Paul George scored 27 points, including six made threes. Jerami Grant added 20 for Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City now has won 9-of-10 and are one of the hottest teams in the NBA.

The Thunder improved to 35-19 on the year. It’s the most games they’ve been over .500 since Jan. 13, 2016. Oklahoma City found themselves in the Western Conference finals that season.

The Thunder will now travel to Houston for a Western Conference showdown on Saturday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on ABC. The Thunder will need a huge road win here to keep their streak alive.

Paul George named All-Star Starter

Though it took some time, Paul George has been named a Western Conference All-Star starter. George finished third in the front court voting, booking him into the final starting position in the Western Conference.

In 46 games this season, George is leading the Thunder in scoring while averaging career-highs in points (27.0), rebounds (7.9), steals (2.33) and made threes (3.4). He currently ranks eighth in the NBA in scoring, second in steals and first in points off turnovers (5.0). He leads the league in loose balls recovered (2.3) while ranking second in deflections (3.8).

George’s All-Star selection is his seventh overall, second in the Western Conference. It’s the third time he’s been picked to be a starter, first in the West.

George has been the front runner for the Defensive Player of the Year and has been in the discussion for Most Valuable Player all season as well. George is one of five players in the NBA this season to hit a pair of game-winning field goals. On Dec. 5 in Brooklyn, George scored a team-record 25 fourth-quarter points, including the game-winning three in the final seconds to help lead Oklahoma City to their largest comeback victory in club history. Additionally, George completed a four-point play in the final moments of the Thunder’s 117-115 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers this past Saturday.

The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will follow last year’s format whereby LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo will draft rosters from a pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference, making their picks regardless of conference affiliation.
Fan voting accounted for 50 percent of the overall vote while NBA players and a media panel each accounted for 25 percent of the vote. Among frontcourt players, George received the third-most fan votes (3,122,346) in the Western Conference.
TNT will announce the reserves, selected by NBA head coaches, on Thursday Jan. 31 during NBA Tip-Off.
The 68th NBA All-Star Game will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. CT. TNT will televise the NBA All-Star Game for a 17th consecutive year.

Thunder lose to historic night

It took the best 3-point shooting night in NBA history and double overtime but the San Antonio Spurs were able to slip by the Oklahoma City Thunder 154-147 on Thursday night.

The Thunder fall to 25-16 on the season and have lost three straight. It’s second time this season Oklahoma City has lost three straight games.

“Obviously, we want the W,” Terrance Ferguson said. “So, it’s not sitting right.”

It almost didn’t seem possible. The Spurs drained three… after three… after three… after three. There’s nothing the Thunder could’ve done. Oklahoma City defended and San Antonio hit some wild shots and they continued to go in. The Spurs led by as many as 16 and the Spurs just never cooled off.

For all of the threes San Antonio hit, it was Ferguson of all people who responded with killer threes as well. He nailed a career high seven treys on 10 attempts. Oklahoma City needed every single point. Ferguson finished with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Over his last two games, Ferguson is 11-of-14 from deep.

Russell Westbrook arguably had his best game this season with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 24 assists. Westbrook’s 24 assists are the 9th most in NBA history (since 1983-84). The 24 assist are the most in the NBA since Dec. 2017 when Rajon Rondo had 25 assists. Westbrook only turned it over three times, third lowest this season.

The Thunder powered back to tie the game with 6:03 left in regulation. However, Steven Adams would leave the game after stepping on the foot of LaMarcus Aldridge. Adams would come back by the end of regulation where the Thunder would use him sparingly. He was forced to come into the second overtime after Jerami Grant fouled out.

The loss is Oklahoma City’s seventh straight in San Antonio. Aldridge had a lot to do with it. Aldridge set a career high with 56 points to lead San Antonio. The last time Oklahoma City won in San Antonio was Dec. 25, 2014. Reggie Jackson was Oklahoma City’s leading scorer in that contest.

There’s so much you could say about the game. From Adams rolling his ankle to Grant’s career high of 25 points. Oklahoma City had their chance. They led multiple times in the first overtime session. However, injuries and foul trouble caught up to the Thunder. Had Steven Adams not gone to the locker room with an ankle sprain, they probably win this game in regulation.

The NBA’s officiating was super inconsistent. A questionable technical foul and a few other weird reversal calls that went in favor of the Spurs leads to fans questioning what happened. Even the announcers seemed a bit bewildered by the reversals.

Oklahoma City had a chance to get within a bucket after a made Paul George 3-pointer. However, the officials ruled Adams was fouled before the shot and Adams would shoot free throws. Adams made the first and missed the second, tipping it out to George who missed a three.

The two teams will throw down again on Saturday night at the Peake. It’s a rare back-to-back for two teams. They’ll tip-off at 7 p.m. As the season continues into the second half of the season, this is turning into a must win game. We’ll have your complete coverage on social media.

Keys to the Game

Force turnovers: B

Oklahoma City forced 17 turnovers, but took 58 minutes to do it. Usually, they do that within just the regulation. However, the Spurs take care of the ball and they forced Oklahoma City to earn every turnover. The Thunder scored 21 points off those 17 turnovers.

Make Free throws: F

The Thunder went 16-of-24 at the line. Westbrook was abysmal, going 2-of-5. Oklahoma City has to get better at shooting free throws. However, at this point of the season, do we really expect any significant improvement? Probably not. It will end up costing the Thunder a playoff game or two.

Need Good Russ: A+

Westbrook was electric all game long. He stepped up and shot well and distributed like a superstar. Sure, he needs to stop taking threes but for the most part, Westbrook embodied everything that is Good Russ. That’s the Westbrook Oklahoma City needs going into the second half of the season.

Nerlens Noel is in Concussion Protocol

After Tuesday’s terrible accident, the Thunder have released a statement, Nerlens Noel is current in NBA’s Concussion Protocol.

Noel took an elbow to the head and then hit his head on the floor in The third quarter of Oklahoma City’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Noel would leave on a stretcher and was conscious hen he left the arena.

Per the NBA’s Concussion Policy, Noel will now begin the NBA-mandated Return-to-Participation Protocol. This process includes a series of steps designed to ensure an athlete exhibits symptom-free behavior before resuming basketball activities. There is no predetermined timetable to complete the protocol, as each injury and player is different and recovery time can vary in each case.

Its obvious the elbow wasn’t intentional from Andre Wiggins. Players have stated they don’t think Wiggins did anything intentionally. However, Dennis Schröder took exception to some T-Wolves players laughing and carrying on while Noel was being attended to. Jeff Teague and Schröder were later involved in an altercation, leading to the ejection of Teague on double technical fouls.

It’s unknown when Noel will be back. All of Thunder Nation continues to keep him in our thoughts as he recover.

In 39 games (one start) this season, Noel is averaging 5.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.44 blocks in 13.7 minutes.

Thunder disheartening in loss to Timberwolves

Oklahoma City fell to 5-5 in their last 10 games with a 119-117 loss to the Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

The loss stung as the Thunder continue to struggle in winnable games. Dismissing the Wizards game against the Wizards and the Thunder have been in their losses. Four of their five losses have been by a combined 10 points.

The Thunder drop to 25-15, the best record through 40 games in the post-KD era. Oklahoma City is still third in the West playoff race.

The scary moment came with mid-third when Nerlens Noel took an elbow off contact from Andrew Wiggins. Noel then hit his head on the floor, appearing to knock him unconscious. He left on a stretcher and on last known update from Thunder head coach Billy Donovan, Noel was at OU Medical Center and no real update was given.

Sometimes things are out of your control and tonight, it appeared it was.

It started with Wiggins. He went bananas. Wiggins as it goes for overall No. 1 selections, has largely a let down… unless he’s playing the Thunder. Wiggins dropped 40 points on Oklahoma City and was ever so dominant as the Timberwolves fans has wished he’d turn into for 82 games. A key to the 40-spot: 18 free throws, officiating crew saw way too much contact and the Thunder never adjusted. Wiggins was never a shooting star in the second half. It was his free throws. He was 10-of-12 from the line in the second half.

“We put them at the free throw line too many times,” Donovan said. “e got hurt on the offensive, I mean defensive glas too many times.”

Despite all of the inconsistent officiating, the Thunder were in it. Heck, they even led with 1:14 remaining in the fourth quarter as Russell Westbrook hit a pull-up jumper from the right nail. As they have in past losses, the Thunder gave up 15 offensive rebounds in the loss to Minnesota, including six in the fourth quarter.

The cold streaks of Paul George and the inconsistency of Westbrook led to the loss from the Thunder side. Westbrook, who had been largely the reason Oklahoma City was even in the game as George went cold in the fourth. However, the play Donovan drew up came up empty as Westbrook attacked the paint, stalled, and ended up taking two ill-advised three-pointers.

“Yeah, we got some looks,” Westbrook said. “Missed them. Move on to the next.”

Minutes after the Noel injury, Dennis Schröder and Jeff Teague were involved in a mini-altercation with Teague heading to the locker rooms with double technical fouls.

Oklahoma City’s bench with the absence of Alex Abrines continues to struggle shooting the three, among other things. OKC’s bench was 2-of-5 from deep but Diallo and others were largely non-existent and were outscored 37-24.

Westbrook finished with 25 points, 19 in the second half, and 16 assists. He only pulled down five rebounds. George had 27 points on 9-of-24 shooting. He was 3-of-12 in the second half with two turnovers. Steven Adams had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder Kiwi.

The Thunder have to get their head on straight as they have back-to-back games against the San Antonio Spurs. Thursday night’s game is on TNT and is scheduled for a 8:30 p.m. tip-off. On Saturday, they’ll rotate locations and tip-off again at 7 p.m. in Oklahoma City.

Wizards make OKC disappear

Your superstars can be out but that doesn’t mean you’re out. The Oklahoma City has been witness to that for many moons. That was no different on Sunday night as the Washington Wizards beat the Thunder 116-98 at the ‘Peake.

Oklahoma City trailed by as many as 23 in the game and never seemed to pull off one of those patented runs Oklahoma City has been known for this season.

“82 games,” Russell Westbrook said. “You think you’re going to play good every night, you’ve got another thing coming.”

With the loss, Oklahoma City drops to 25-14 on the season and they’re third in the Western Conference playoff race.

The 18-point loss is the Thunder’s largest loss since a 32-point drumming from the Warriors in Feb. 2018.

Turnovers, or thereof the lack of turnovers, was the real point here. Oklahoma City only forced nine turnovers, a season low. It’s the lowest amount of turnovers for an opponent since the Thunder only forced nine in a win over the Kings in Feb. 2018.

“We turned the ball over too much, at least I did,” Westbrook said. “That’s the story of the game.”

Westbrook turned it over eight times, despite the triple-double. He finished with 22 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists.

The Thunder fought back, in the second half, eventually taking the lead 65-63 with 7:41 left in the third quarter. It appeared for all of their faults within the game, they fought back and and had the lead.

It was all downhill from there.

Washington outscored Oklahoma City 20-6 over the next six minutes, essentially putting the game out of reach for the Thunder by the end of the third quarter.

“We did well on the road,” Paul George said. “We had some big games that we won and just one of those nights you come home and you see an opponent like the Wizards. You just fall into that trap.”

It was Washington’s board domination that limited the Thunder’s ability for second chance points. The second best offensive rebounding team in the NBA was held to only seven. Steven Adams, the league’s foremost authority on offensive boards had zero. It’s the first time since Nov. 5, 2017 against Portland, where Adams didn’t have an offensive rebound.

No possession epitomized the game more than mid-fourth where the Wizards miss a couple of shots but the Wizards kept fighting their way to the rebound. They got off three offensive rebounds and ended with an open Jeff Green three-pointer. It put the Wizards up 20 again.

“I don’t think we played well enough to put ourselves in a position to win the game,” Thunder head coach Billy Donovan said. “Washington played well. We didn’t rebound well. We didn’t defend well. We didn’t do anything well.”

The Thunder will host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night at the ‘Peake. Oklahoma City could use a strong night’s rest after the demoralizing loss. That game is scheduled to tip-off at 7 p.m.

It’s Washington’s first ever win in Oklahoma City. Ever. Not even when the Hornets rented the ‘Peake. They were a combined 0-11 before Sunday’s win over the Thunder.

“We know what we are capable of,” Westbrook said. “We just take this one and move on to the next.”

That’s all you can do with losses like this. You take the result. You throw out the tape and the result and move on. It’s a loss and nothing more.

Blazers Meltdown

  • Another big game. It’s time to make our run
  • Beating the Thunder you just let Westbrook shoot every shot at the end of the game….works everytime
  • Why what is wrong with Moe? We don’t play until Friday.
    He’s unreliable.
  • I was wondering if Westbrook has the most triple doubles in losses in NBA history
    Not at all. In fact, he only has 21 losses in the 114 games in which he’s recorded a triple double, which is fewer than Magic’s 30, Kidd’s 31, and Big O’s 48. His .8158 winning percentage in triple-double games is actually 4th best amongst the top-10 triple-doubler’s in NBA history, and is better than the two people with more than him, Oscar (.7257) and Magic (.7826).
  • If the Blazers loose in the playoffs this year I will be going for OKC.
    As if my opinion of your posts couldn’t get any lower.
  • All i can say is i hate Westbrook.
  • Thunder it’s a good team. We got this one but it’s a quality team
  • Looking over the Thunder roster I really dislike this team, top 3 hate level. Remember when people on this board wanted Noel, glad that didn’t happen.
  • OMG, they’ve got Felton, I hate Felton so we’ve just gotta beat the Thunder. We have to beat them.
  • Lets leave George wide open off of a dead ball turnover, real smart strategy!
  • Refs not calling s*** on OKC early
  • Have I told you how much I hate Evan Turner?
  • Paul George is soooo smooth. This game will be Lillard vs George
  • F*** Paul George and f*** the Refs
  • Nice product there, NBA. Go f*** yourselves.
  • Is the official NBA rule book in braille?
  • Guess we gotta give Stotts credit every time he uses basic common sense.
  • Schroder sucks lol
  • Will the Blazers go the entire game without shooting a free throw?
  • I swear, 50 per cent of this game are missed rebounds and the other have are alley oops.
  • Westbrook is so f***ing predictable lol
  • NBA want’s Okc to win that Game
  • Dame blew by Westbrook then Westbrook tried to blow by dame. Too bad dame picked up the foul.
  • I pray we get okc in the playoffs. That’s a fun 7 game series.
  • We have nobody who can stop George. That concerns me.
  • If Westbrook gets hot, this could get ugly.
  • Giving George uncontested 15′ jumpers might not be the best idea…
  • Yeah, but if we guard him he gets FTs.
  • Is there ANYTHING we can do to stop George?
  • we have no answer for Paul George. Just pray he misses shots
  • We got this OKC is weak
  • I knew it would happen
  • If Paul George didn’t snap his leg in half, he’s arguably the best player in the game. Just my opinion
  • I dunno why they keep playing this Schroder scrub, but I’m glad they are.
  • This is the Stotts coaching we know and love…….
  • Can the Blazers finally break the 0-16 streak?
  • 93 points and still in the 3rd quarter. Just letting PG kill us.
  • Time to turn off the TV
  • Imploding at the speed of light!
  • OKC is ramping up its defense. Our passes need to come faster. Too much deliberation.
  • Schroder heard what we said about him
  • Horrible calls to boot
  • I love this board. Can’t let so much as a joke go without the automatic refutation of criticism. It’s like having being in middle school algebra again and having the pockmarked kid at the back with his hand up, yelling, “That’s not true! That’s not the answer! I know the answer and that not it!”
  • The Thunder have been really lucky in the 50/50 balls this half.
  • Cj is like Shawn Kemp level overpaid now
  • Damn Westbrook.
  • Damian get your head out of your f***ing ass. WTF was that shot
  • I think that Westbrook guy is going to be good.
  • That steal by WB is haunting me atm
  • The Thunder have been really lucky in the 50/50 balls this half.
  • Well they’ve been creating them.
  • Why did I bother watching this s***. Game over. Pathetic in so many facets.
  • Great block by Grant.
  • Westbrick completely dominating CJ tonight.
  • Refs are calling such bs shooting fouls in our favour now, to try to make it look like they called a fair game.
  • Refs making some clutch foul calls, giving Blazers a bunch of FTs in crunch time.
  • CJ not clutch.
  • Well came up short…Thunder played a hell of a game
  • CJ McUnclutch….
  • Chokej is the biggest p***y to ever wear a blazer uniform
  • Can we talk about playoffs hahaha
  • Harden is going to destroy us.
  • Man i hate CJ.

  • should’ve made that trade for PG13
  • PG is just feasting on us.
  • Wow, (bleep) defense Josh.
  • Double Paul George. Don’t let him be the scorer. Make Westbrook have to win this game.
  • It feels like PG is the only guy scoring for the Thunder.
  • Refs haven’t called (bleep) on George since he got his 3rd foul .
  • Zubac you bum
  • (bleep). Protect the (bleep) ball Zu.
  • That’s why you don’t let Lonzo handle the ball.
  • Great third quarter. Do we have the stamina to win
  • Keep it close we know OKC has no closers
  • They have no one that can make a shot so all the Lakers need to do is zone up.
  • Lakers are leading OKC without Lebron, Rondo, Kuz.  Let’s get the W.
  • another TO and get Zo back in
  • Simma down Lakers
  • Call timeout you (bleep)!
  • (bleep) you Luke. (bleep) you.
  • Some guy called Nader going off.
  • Death, taxes, and scrubs going off on the Lakers.
  • Lost the lead while PG and RW are on the bench. Come on. (bleep) Luke.
  • playing the sloppy ass thunder style atm
  • So a middle eastern dude is killing us now
  • Westbrook is gonna check back into the game, go off and we’re gonna lose lol.
  • Geez… What the (bleep) happened to our offense yet again.
  • The refs have been the only ones making plays in the last 5 minutes or so.
  • lol at OKC can’t make 2 footers
  • Game over. Lonzo, change your (bleep) form on the free throws the very least.
  • When was our last bucket?
  • Hart is matching Westbrook… miss by miss…
  • The crowd is booing Lonzo, who is now 1 for his last 10 at the FT line.
  • Lonzo getting the boo birds from the fans.
  • Lonzo building a house with Hart and Westbrook… apparently
  • This team has to be historically bad at FTs?
  • How are we this close? We’ve played like (bleep)
  • Why did the Thunder let PG rest for so long? They could have put the game away earlier.
  • Ouch. That looked painful for Ferguson.
  • Stupid ass Ferguson. Strong Hart.
  • Even Josh Hart gets the whistle on that.
  • Ferguson was dumb for goin up like that..
  • bad defensive play by Ferguson
  • Why isn’t Ingram on Paul George?
  • Ugh. I am concerned that we could not get it together before PG-13 came back in.
  • Luke needs to be fired.
  • Thunder are thoroughly unimpressive, but the Lakers have been getting outworked all night it’s pathetic!
  • (bleep) George
  • God I can’t stand Paul George man. What a (bleep)
    Actually, this is just an ugly basketball game. All around.
  • No one Can make a damn shot.
  • Luke is a clown
  • wow.. Chadler that’s dirty
  • so ferguson can jump on hart with no flagrant, and then tyson gets all ball and they review it?!?
  • this will be the worst game I’ve never watched.
  • Not a flagrant. (bleep) these retards.
  • Chandler didn’t even go for that ball.
  • The look on Pelinka, Lebron and Magic.
  •  Bron telling Maginka to ship them all out.
  • “we don’t need you…..we don’t need you….”
  • PG looking to get 40?
  • westbrook is just relentless… impressive.
  • I really really really really really really want to beat these punks bad in OKC when we’re at full strength. They really tried to clown us at the end, especially grant dunking their last points, with the game decided-You could hear tyson saying something to him about that.
    Classless move
    Thunder being classless isn’t a shocker, especially since they have nothing better to do when they have to endore playing in a crappy city like Oklahoma.
  • We let pg (bleep) in our house.
  • PG-13 whooped our ass tonight
  • Paul George gawdamn we needed this guy
