Thunder need help for Game 6 without Westbrook

OKLAHOMA CITY Russell Westbrook popped up on the big scoreboard at Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday night and promptly got the biggest cheer of the night. The All-Star guard was watching the game from a suite, bum knee and all, but it looked like it was the rest of the guys on the court who were the ones hurting. Undoubtedly, the Thunder miss him. It's shown in the past two...

Thunder vs. Rockets highlights: KD’s dunk and Serge Ibaka’s blown lay-up

The Houston Rockets managed to hold off Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in an elimination game Monday night. There were several plays down the stretch that felt like KD would put the team on his back and closeout the first round playoff series. This fourth quarter dunk by KD on Chandler Parsons certainly looked like it was going to be the moment. With 1:13 left and the...

Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin Pull off the Very Rare Double Flop (Video)

Derek Fisher as a player is known for his ability to knock down big shots, maneuver out of contracts, and flopping. And it would appear that he has taken his Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Martin under his wing, because they pulled off a very rare and well synchronized double flop during Game 5 of their first round playoff match up against the Houston Rockets last night. Check...

Kevin Durant leaps into the stands against Rockets, makes incredible save

There are many things that you can say about Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant but not giving 100% effort at all times is not one of them. In the second quarter of game four between the Thunder/Rockets, Durant came up with a steal and somehow made an impressive save while leaping into the stands. Durant’s hustle lead to a three-pointer by Thunder guard Kevin Martin: In the...

Synchronized Flopping Makes Its NBA Debut

The only thing more shameful than Scott Brooks’ desperate Hack-Asik strategy during Houston’s 107-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday was this tandem flop by defensive black holes Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin. Wait, what’s that? You want the remix? Gladly: Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Thunder teammates join forces to execute the rarely seen double-flop (video)

Despite the NBA’s best efforts to put the kibosh on the troublesome scourge that flopping has become in its league, during the regular season as well as in the playoffs, practitioners of the dark art continue to come up with new and inventive ways to commit the heinous act. During Wednesday night’s Game 5 showdown between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake...

Oklahoma City Thunder become first team to perfectly execute a double-flop

You have heard of syncronized diving and syncronized swimming, but have you ever heard of syncronized flopping? Well, if you were watching Game 5 of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, you saw Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin nail a perfectly timed double. If you missed it, enjoy: Now if they could only give more support to Kevin Durant. H/T The Basketball Jones

CBS Fires Blogger for Calling a Thunder Cheerleader Chunky

Seems like a silly thing to get fired over, but never underestimate the power of social media. Once it went viral the reporter didn’t stand a chance. Ironically. it was a female reporter who came under fire, I think a male reporter would have known the implications of saying such things and would have just avoided the topic. Also, I don’t think men are wired to write stories...

Kendrick Perkins says Thunder aren’t stressed, tweets picture of Celtics ring

The Oklahoma City Thunder are heading in the wrong direction since Russell Westbrook went down with a knee injury. After putting the Houston Rockets in a 3-0 hole, the Thunder now find themselves preparing for Game 6 on the road. Kendrick Perkins is not concerned. No team has ever come back to win an NBA playoff series after being down 0-3, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation...

Why has no NBA team ever come back from a 3-0 deficit? The Knicks and Thunder should not take that for granted.

The 2004 Yankees will tell you how easy it is for a playoff series to get away from you. I vividly remember the cover of the sports section of the NYTimes on the day of game 4 against the Red Sox and there were brooms all over it, as they approached a sweep. Just a few days later, the Yankees were eliminated by their long-time rival, and before they knew it, the curse of the Bambino...

Kevin Durant On Intentional Foul Strategy: ‘Hack-A-Whatever His Name Is’

In the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ 107-100 Game 5 victory, the Thunder utilized a strategy of fouling the Omer Asik, a 52.7% career free throw shooter, intentionally in hopes of making a comeback. The strategy backfired as Asik made 7-of-12 and Kevin Durant seemed to have a hard time remembering the Rockets starting center’s name when asked about the fouls after the loss...

Westboro Baptist Church Plans on Picketing Outside Game 5 of Oklahoma City Thunder/Houston Rockets Series

If the idea sounds a little strange to you then you are not alone. When I first heard that the Westboro Baptist Church was going to hold a protest outside of Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday I thought, "Wow, what a horrible name for an arena" followed quickly with "What in the world do those people hate about basketball?" The answer was pretty easy--Jason...

Hack and Lose

Fear The Beard I don't mean to overreact to this, because it's just one first round playoff game between two teams that won't likely advance past the second round, due to injuries and inexperience. There's a very real chance that no one will think very much about this later, and that I'm just dealing with the ugly visual of a Game Five loss at home, in a series...
