Thunder can’t overlook Timberwolves to Spurs

While The Minnesota Timberwolves have only won 20 games this season, the Oklahoma Thunder are on the other side of the spectrum, sitting in third place in the Western Conference with a 44-20 record.  But it was the Thunder All Stars who kept them from a defeat at the hands of the T-wolves in their last meeting, a slim 123-126 victory.

The Thunder have won 10 straight against the Timberwolves and with the Spurs looming on the horizon with a nationally televised game Saturday, Coach Donovan hopes his team maintains control on what aspects of the game they can.

Thunder drop game to Blazers

The Oklahoma City Thunder road woes continue after dropping a 115-110 game at Portland.  The Trailblazers were led by Damien Lillard’s 31 points including five three-pointers in the final three minutes, plus change.

The Thunder, now 9-7 on the road, were led by Kevin Durant’s 28 points but they could not contain Lillard, who had 17 points in the final stanza, including those three 3-pointers.
