OKLAHOMA CITY Right after Wednesday's win against New Orleans Kevin Durant just shook his head.
Oh, what could have been.
Yes, Durant had another triple-double, this one 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, but the possibility of something spectacular could have been lingered.
Too bad coach Scott Brooks benched Durant. Again.
Seems like it happens all the time, and in a roundabout way, it could end up costing Durant the scoring title.
Durant and Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks are both averaging 28.5 points per game. Durant has won the past three scoring titles. He took just eight shots against the Hornets and is missing plenty of minutes.
Even Durant admitted he was bothered by it, albeit jokingly and with a pretty wide smile. He's never been shy about being aware of his stats, often discussing a rebound, steal or assist with the folks at the scorer's table in Oklahoma City, and he knew his situation Wednesday against the Hornets, too.
"It's all good,&...

OKLAHOMA CITY Derek Fisher checked in at the start of the second quarter, and with it ended any debate about what his role will be on this team.
Not that we didn't know already.
Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks pretty much said as much when he joked (not something Brooks does with any regularity or success) a few hours before the Thunder worked over New Orleans 119-74 Wednesday...

Even after his contract is up with the Oklahoma City Thunder this year (if he makes it to the end of the year), Derek Fisher is not ready to retire. Sure, the aging guard has "retired" a couple of times now, but there's no reason to think he'll actually retire, right?According to an Associated Press report, Fisher does not plan to retire. He said his knee was...
The Thunder have reassigned Perry Jones, Jeremy Lamb and DeAndre Liggins to the Tulsa 66ers.
When the Texas Longhorns stormed back on Wednesday night against their rival Oklahoma Sooners...things got a little weird in the Twitterverse.
That's because the most popular athlete in the state of Oklahoma decided to go against the grain and take on the most popular school in the state.
It started innocent enough...sorta.
"Yea my longhorns came back from being down...
Though the Oklahoma City Thunder score more than any other team in the NBA, it might be an improving defense that proves to be the difference in their title chase.
Friday night will see that defense face a tough test when the Thunder host the Denver Nuggets, whose high-octane attack has been bolstered by Ty Lawson's emergence as a dynamic scorer.
Oklahoma City (42-15) leads...
