We at Cosby Sweaters are still searching for a good term to replace “posterize,” and for this gem we have chosen to go with baptismal. Kevin Durant took absolutely no mercy on election night when he dunked all over rookie Jonas Valanciunas. The Thunder dominated the Toronto Raptors 108-88 and there is no word if Jonas will return to the NBA following that embarrassment.
While most of you were probably keeping tabs on the United States presidential race, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Durant was busy dunking on people.
Check out this poster that he put on Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas:

Oklahoma City’s ball movement was one of the main factors in their 20-point victory over [...]
It may only be the first week of November, but it is never too early to start thinking about Christmastime. Just ask Oklahoma City Thunder players Reggie Jackson, Serge Ibaka, Nick Collison, and Thabo Sefolosha as they star in this local television ad for a Norman, Okla., Chysler Jeep Dodge dealership.Everyone seems to be in the Christmas spirit except Perkins. I don't know if...
PUTS 'F' IN FUNDAMENTALS
The Toronto Raptors agreed to pay former Knicks small forward Landry Fields $20 million over three years during the off-season. Do they wish they could take the deal back? They’d probably answer ‘yes’ at this point. Through four games, Fields is averaging a measly 2.5 points a game in 22 minutes of action. At the same time, Fields is missing easy layups like this one against...

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook shrugged off a sore shoulder to score 19 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder cruised past the Toronto Raptors 108-88 on Tuesday night.

A couple of days ago, Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague nearly posterized Houston Rockets forward Marcus Morris but was called for an offensive foul.However, Teague last night against the Oklahoma City Thunder decided to find a better player to poster.Watch as he throws it down on Kevin Durant:
Pictured above are Nick Collison, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Serge Ibaka. What they’re wearing is Oklahoma City’s new, different, and completely unexciting navy blue alternate uniform. The uniform looks like something an unartistic child would design with MS Paint, and will make its unfortunate debut on Friday night.
The Thunder are just the latest of many teams...
OKLAHOMA CITY - Somewhere lost along the way of the James Harden talk and the chemistry and temperature of the Thunder, there are some real issues that need to be addressed.
Like when is this team going to start holding onto the ball?
But maybe it doesn't even matter.
Twenty turnovers against Atlanta, 17 against Toronto and a ridiculous average of more than 17 per game so...
DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks' streak of shooting at least 60 percent ended at two games, but they did extend their winning streak to three in a row, dumping the Toronto Raptors 109-104 Wednesday at the American Airlines Center. The Raptors trailed by double digits for most of the game but came back with a late charge, getting to within five points twice in the final minute...
As you can see from Kendrick Perkins' performance here.
