OKLAHOMA CITY The moment Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks hesitated, the answer was obvious.
Maybe he was just considering how to word his answer. Give him the benefit of the doubt, and you could make the case Brooks was being deliberate. A thinking man.
When asked about the recent issues with his team, the ones where Oklahoma City has ping-ponged back and forth between wins and losses the past six games, Brooks eventually came correct even if it took and extra moment or two.
"I wouldn't say we've played good basketball," he said.
No holes in that story. It's true. Hard to make a case otherwise, as the Thunder lost again at home, this time collapsing in the second quarter and coming undone in the fourth quarter.
The result was a 114-105 San Antonio victory Friday night in front of a sold-out Chesapeake Energy Arena.
That's what happened Friday, but the big picture is the questions about what will happen next.
Is it time to panic for the Thu...
