Oklahoma City Thunder
NEW YORK -- The Oklahoma City Thunder came in hot and looked flat-out steaming for most of the first three quarters, but the Brooklyn Nets made them work to the end for their sixth straight win. The Thunder shot 60.6 percent and did not miss a free throw until the final moments, but still somehow couldn't shake the Nets, who hit one clutch 3-pointer after the other to nudge themselves back in the game. Finally, thanks to 32 points from Kevin Durant and 25 from Russell Westbrook, the Thunder held on for a 117-111 victory Tuesday night at the Barclays Center. The Thunder won for the 14th time in their last 16 games, and they beat the Nets for the seventh straight time. Oklahoma City, which won by an average of 25 points in its previous four games and led by 16 in the third quarter and 10 in the fourth, couldn't put away the pesky Nets, who were without injured center Brook Lopez. Deron Williams led the Nets with 33 points, and Andray Blatche did a good job of filling...

Russell Westbrook will be the first player to debut the new Air Jordan XX8′s when the Thunder play in Brooklyn on Tuesday night. Westbrook was on hand at the Jordan “Dare To Fly” event in NYC on Monday afternoon where the new shoe was unveiled for the first time. “It’s a great shoe. Very light. Very, very comfortable,” said Westbrook:
Kevin Durant scored 32 points, Russell Westbrook had 25 points and nine assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder held off the Brooklyn Nets 117-111 on Tuesday night for their sixth straight victory.
Serge Ibaka added 18 points and Thabo Sefolosha 14 for the Thunder, who revved up the NBA's No. 1 offense to surpass 100 points in a 10th straight game for the first time in 15 years...
Serge Ibaka’s primary purpose on the basketball court is to throw a monkey wrench into other peoples’ posters, but that doesn’t mean Air Congo can’t switch it up from time to time. As indicated by his 15 PPG average so far this season, Ibaka is quickly becoming a polished offensive player. Last night, Serge elected to show off his ups as he attacked the rack and dropped...
Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans will miss Brooklyn's game against Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, leaving the Nets without their leading scorer and top rebounder.
Lopez will miss a third straight game with a sprained right foot. The Nets have said the injury to their starting center is unrelated to the broken foot that helped limit him to just five games last season.
In an article by Tulsa World, Kevin Durant will be releasing a Nike backpack. The bag will the Nike KD Hoops Elite backpack. The picture above shows what the backpack looks like and does not include all the other accessories. Durant just wants to show what he likes to put in his backpack. Durantula stated,
Those who know me know I like to keep it simple. I carry three key...
It will be interesting to see what Deron Williams does when he claims he was misquoted.
Williams, the starting point guard for the Brooklyn Nets, has broken ground as an athlete by employing his own beat reporters to cover him for his website, deronwilliams.com, and create “a larger brand portfolio” for himself, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.
So far, Williams...

Kevin Durant wasn't the only one attempting big dunks last night against the New Jersey Nets. Serge Ibaka threw down a huge slam on Jerry Stackhouse and the only way Ian Eagle could describe it was “A Foreign Facial!” Well, I guess if that's what it's called when Ibaka dunks on you, a lot of guys in the NBA have some explaining to do. Check out the video below...
Kendrick Perkins is playing a major part within the Thunder locker room.
A Nets loss to the Heat and a Knicks win against Phoenix plummeted the Brooklyn Nets back to second in the Atlantic division. Not much of a fall but the Nets have a string of very winnable games coming up, which makes that top spot attainable again.
Brook Lopez shouldn’t be out for an extended time and may be a game time decision against the Oklahoma City Thunder tomorrow night...
It's no secret that I have been one of Kendrick Perkins' biggest fans since his rookie season. After Danny's terrible trade that sent him to the Thunder I have continued to follow Perk and in the process, have become a Thunder fan. If Danny had to trade him, he couldn't have picked a better fit for him. I took great pleasure watching the Thunder beat up on the...
The Oklahoma City Thunder are tied for the most wins in the NBA, and not surprisingly Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have led the charge - especially during their current winning streak.
They'll look to help lead Oklahoma City to a season-best sixth consecutive win Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets, who begin a four-game homestand.
The Thunder (14-4) began their streak...
Looking for the dunk on Tuesday Night in the NBA?You might want to check out this thunderous dunk thrown down by Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka on Brooklyn's Andray Blatche:
Disclaimer: This post is a tribute to Celtics' culture and the high-character players it produces, not another debate about the Jeff Green-Perkins trade. For that, go here.
Though Kendrick Perkins' production has been a disappointment to Oklahoma City Thunder fans, he has stepped up in other ways. Apparently, he has been a great locker room presence, helping to sooth player...
