Oklahoma City Thunder
Dallas owner Mark Cuban says he is disappointed with how Derek Fisher left the Mavericks, only to eventually end up signing up the Oklahoma City last month.
Fisher went through his first practice with the Thunder on Tuesday after signing with Oklahoma City. He asked Dallas to waive him earlier this season so he could spend time with his family.
Rick Carlisle previewed Monday’s visit to Oklahoma City by saying, “‘we’ve got to know where the monsters are.”
Russell Westbrook scored 24 points, Kevin Durant had 19 points, and the Thunder beat the Mavs 112-91 on Monday night while avoiding a third straight OT game between the teams.
The Mavericks have “a heart of a champion,” said Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, but his Thunder have the record to prove that they’re the better team.
Kevin Durant scored 40 points while Russell Westbrook added eight of his 16 points in overtime to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat Dallas 111-105 on Thursday night for their 11th straight win at home.
Kevin Durant scored 18 points and James Harden added 16 to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to an 88-66 preseason victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.
As the clock ticks to October 31, the last day for extensions for the class of 2009, James Harden has made his position perfectly clear. He wants to stay in Oklahoma City.
There has always been a distinct humility about Kevin Durant. He’s always heaped praise on teammates and coaches and never himself. He’s always deflected questions about his superstardom to something else.
Adding to a resume that already includes three-time NBA scoring champion and gold medalist, Kevin Durant now stars in the movie “Thunderstruck.” It opens in theaters on Friday.
After losing in the NBA Finals, the Thunder aren’t supposed to pick until the 28th choice in the first round on Thursday night.
LeBron James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Heat in a 121-106 rout of the Thunder on Thursday night to win the NBA Finals in five games.
