I think it’s pretty clear that Eric Maynor is back. After being out for the season last year with an injury, the Oklahoma City Thunder‘s solid back-up point guard came back in solid fashion, especially at the end of the third quarter.
With only about two seconds to spare in the third quarter, Maynor filled in for Russell Westbrook and pulled off an amazing play, swishing a halfcourt shot 55-feet away from the basket. It would tie up the game at 66 versus the San Antonio Spurs entering the fourth quarter.
Welcome back, Eric!

LOW BUDGET GOLD
Here is Reggie Jackson, Serge Ibaka, Nick Collison, Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder starring in one of those local television spots that turn out to be unintentional comedic gold. Usually it’s because these low budget ads are so terribly cheesy that they’re funny, but this one turned out to be quite good not because of the the horrific singing...
OKLAHOMA CITY James Harden went off again.
Somehow, I get the feeling people around these parts are going to be talking about Harden this season.
Forget the first-guessing, that's too difficult. It's all second-guessing now. It's a full-blown case of, "Should they or shouldn't they have traded Harden," and it's infected everyone...
Filling the shoes of James Harden in Oklahoma City is no easy task. However, through two games, Kevin Martin has proved that he’s up to the challenge.
The biggest concern for the Thunder coming into the first week of the season was how long it would take Martin to mesh with his new team and his [...]
The Oklahoma City Thunder got its first taste Thursday night of life without James Harden, part of a buzzer-beating 86-84 loss that should drive home the obvious and its consequences: A new era in Thunder basketball has begun, and that's one of several reasons the Western Conference is now up for grabs.
We're just a few games into the season, yes, but Oklahoma City's...
In the preseason, people were asking me if they should take Serge Ibaka in the third round or the fourth round, as if those were the only two options. Sure, he’s great with the blockin’ and all, but I do not consider him a well rounded Center. Last night’s game is about what I expected, although with more rebounds and less blocks: 4 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks. His value...
As Thunder GM Sam Presti was watching his former sixth man run circles around the Pistons, I suspect he had a moment of recoil. At least he should have.
First road challenge
The Portland Trail Blazers started their season off on the right foot with a 116-106 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers, but now it’s time to take their act on the road against the defending Western Conference champions, the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Oklahoma City Thunder (0-0) vs.San Antonio Spurs (1-0)
The Thunder kick off their Western Conference title defense against the team they needed to dethrone to get to the Finals for the first time since 1996 (or ever, depending on whose history you choose to believe). Oklahoma City may have lost James Harden, but this is largely the same team that took four straight...
Some would say that Tim Duncan was never a theatrical Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Maam dunker, but the advanced aged San Antionio Spurs star shows younger Oklahoma City Thunder player, Serge Ibaka, that he still has moves on Thursday night.The post Tim Duncan Dunks On Serge Ibaka (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
I think we all saw what happened last night. The Spurs defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder on a game winning shot by Tony Parker. Game over. Everybody on Oklahoma City played terribly and Scott Brooks drew up one of the worst final plays I’ve ever seen. Everybody just kind of stood around and waited for [...]
