Charles Oakley was one of the most physical power forwards when he used to play back in the day, but now he has turned his attention to other players.

Recap: Celtics leave OKC with a moral victory

I didn't watch enough of this game to offer legitimate analysis, but I will give the Celtics a boat load of credit for cutting a 27-point deficit (83-56 with 6:35 remaining in 3rd quarter) to 6 points late in the 4th quarter. The Celtics had two sloppy turnovers (Pietrus bad pass and KG's drop) that squelched the comeback. OKC ran away with it 119-104. Avery Bradley...
