In a very rare 5-day break from action, the Oklahoma City Thunder are ready to get back on the hardwood and have made their way to the Lone Star State to face the Houston Rockets. The last time these two teams met, it was not one of the brightest moments in NBA History and the Rockets eked out a 69-65 victory.
After a long week of practice, the Thunder may finally be back on track.
“(It) felt like a little training camp,” Kevin Durant told the team’s official website. “It’s all about transferring what we always know and what we’re improving on – whether it’s timing, communication or execution, we have to transfer it over.”

The Detroit Pistons are a team in turmoil. Losing their last 11 games, their last win was against the Oklahoma Thunder. It almost happened again as Josh Smith launched a game winner, 3-point shot with 1.1 seconds to play.
“Obviously, I was going for the win, or I wouldn’t have shot a 3,” Smith said. “I had a great look, but it just didn’t go down.”
Serge Ibaka was huge for the Thunder scoring 13 points and adding 13 rebounds to boot.
“I thought Serge was tremendous,” Durant said. “He was chasing down all of those rebounds and scoring when we were kicking them out to him. We had possessions where we had three great shots and three offensive rebounds. We’re doing a good job of rebounding the ball.”

The Oklahoma City Thunder knew that the task at hand would not be an easy one and, they had proven over the course of the regular season that the Spurs were beatable. Even in the Western Conference Finals, the Thunder were able to absorb the Spurs Home Court Advantage and even the series at home.
In a game of adjustments, Thunder Head Coach Scott Brooks knew the Spurs would have one waiting at the AT&T Center.
“Their adjustment [was] they played a much better game,” Brooks said. “That is a good team that scores in bunches and they close out quarters, and they get you running after the ball. You have to be able to contain that basketball. … We gave them everything they wanted. They got the dribble drive, they got the three-point line, and they got to the free-throw line.”

The come from behind victory in game five for the Thunder will serve as the baseline for what will be needed to take out Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Clippers. The Thunder know Clippers collapse is nothing to count on in game six and Doc Rivers doesn’t expect that they will.
“You don’t win it easy,” Rivers said. “We’re trying to do something special here and be something special. And if you’re trying to stand out in any job, it’s going to be hard. You’re going to face adversity, and you’ve just got to accept that that’s part of the process. Yeah, this is hard. It’s supposed to be. And that’s the only thing I told our guys. What’s going on right now is exactly what should happen to win. You have to go through stuff to win, and you’ve just got to deal with it.”
