The Thunder Really Enjoyed Their Flukey Shooting Night Against The Blazers

The Thunder Really Enjoyed Their Flukey Shooting Night Against The Blazers

There’s no secret as to why Damian Lillard was a little bothered on Friday following his game against Oklahoma City. After winning the first two games at home, the Blazers dropped Game 3 against the Thunder 120-108. But though his team still lead the series 2-1, and he was coming off a solid statistical night, there were other things that bothered Lillard about that game—namely, how the loss...

Can The Thunder Trade Russell Westbrook?

Can The Thunder Trade Russell Westbrook?

The trade that brought Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers also in effect brought Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers . That alone makes it one of the more momentous trades in recent NBA history, and the shockwaves haven’t even finished circling the globe yet.

Players as good as those two—George got MVP and DPOY consideration this past season, and Leonard of course had one of the greatest...

Paul George Led A Wild Comeback Against The Sorry-Ass Nets

Paul George Led A Wild Comeback Against The Sorry-Ass Nets

You never want to need a game-winning jumper to beat the Brooklyn Nets, but Paul George made it a thrilling proposition Wednesday night, capping off the Oklahoma City Thunder’s roaring comeback. Down 93-75 entering the fourth quarter, George basically did it all himself, going 9-12 for 25 points in the quarter and leading the Thunder to a 114-112 victory.

Despite the Nets entering play as the...

Kawhi Leonard Signs For Only Two Guaranteed Years With Clippers, Can Continue Wandering The Barren Plain, Searching, Always Searching

Kawhi Leonard Signs For Only Two Guaranteed Years With Clippers, Can Continue Wandering The Barren Plain, Searching, Always Searching

After the long journey to get back home to California, and the incredible finesse in free agency to secure Paul George, it seemed safe to assume that Kawhi Leonard would set down roots in Los Angeles. He’s 28, in the prime of his Hall of Fame career, signing his third contact. After a sour exit from San Antonio and a random but obviously fruitful one-off in the Ontario cold, Leonard is now on...

We Need To Talk About Russell Westbrook

We Need To Talk About Russell Westbrook

We’re officially in the slowest part of the sports calendar: There is no real basketball on (get out of here, we’re not counting Summer League ), soccer just wrapped up its summer tournaments, baseball is in the dead zone between the All-Star Game and September, and so on. But the streets demand the Deadcast in all its sticky, sweaty glory, and so we march on once again, ready to scream into...

Kawhi Leonard Is The NBA's Executive Of The Year

Kawhi Leonard Is The NBA's Executive Of The Year

Kawhi Leonard dynamited what remained of the premise of the Executive of the Year Award, and in doing so redefined the meaning of such staples as: the Friday night news dump; the value of holding onto non-human playing assets; and even patriotism. Now if that’s not a full day’s work for an adult-sized person, that concept is gone as well.

In thinking of, driving, and then benefiting from the...

KawhiWatch: Holy Shit, Kawhi Leonard Is Going To The Clippers

KawhiWatch: Holy Shit, Kawhi Leonard Is Going To The Clippers

Reigning NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting, and he’ll be joined by MVP finalist Paul George. The news ends weeks of speculation about which team might woo the two-time Finals MVP, coming off an amazing postseason, away from re-signing with the Toronto Raptors.

Here are the details from Woj:

How did all this get pulled...

The Pacers Beat Toronto In Game 1, Where The Raptors Always Go To Die

The Pacers Beat Toronto In Game 1, Where The Raptors Always Go To Die

The Indiana Pacers, the seventh-best team in the NBA’s Eastern Conference during the regular season, just rolled into Toronto and stole Game 1 from the Raptors, the second-best team in the East. They were able to do this because the Toronto Raptors have a streak to keep alive: Having never won a Game 1 in a first-round playoff series, the Raps weren’t about to start now.

The score was 100-90...

Paul George Ended A Crazy Game On A Crazy Bucket

The final minutes of Rockets-Thunder on Tuesday night were a dense flurry of batshit. They featured Russell Westbrook swooshing a runner from 27 feet, Paul George earnestly looking to scrap with P.J. Tucker, and James Harden conducting the Rockets’ woozy show as usual. All of that is weird, but some of it is almost...

Uh Oh, Suddenly The Thunder Are A Huge Pile Of Ass

Uh Oh, Suddenly The Thunder Are A Huge Pile Of Ass

The Oklahoma City Thunder went into the All-Star break having won 11 of 13 games, including victories over the 76ers, the Bucks, the Rockets, and twice over the Blazers. They went a season-best 18 games over .500 with an overtime win over Utah on February 22; since then, they’ve lost 11 of 16, and have dropped all the way to eighth in the Western Conference standings. They are in zero danger...

Paul George Believes The Thunder "Haven’t Gotten A Fair Whistle All Year"

Paul George Believes The Thunder "Haven’t Gotten A Fair Whistle All Year"

The Thunder accomplished a rare feat in their 118-110 loss to the Clippers on Friday that they probably won’t think fondly of when the season finally ends for them. For the second time in the past 10 seasons, three starters fouled out before the end of regulation: Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams, per ESPN. The other time it happened was with the Washington Wizards back in...

Jrue Holiday Put A Red-Hot Paul George In The Freezer

So much for Paul George’s ridiculously efficient streak . The Thunder forward finally hit an immovable object named Jrue Holiday.

George had 28 points in Oklahoma City’s loss to New Orleans on Thursday, but it took him 29 shots and it wasn’t pretty. Over his last 10 games, he’d been sinking half his shots from the...

Paul George And Russell Westbrook Got Double Triple-Doubles

Paul George And Russell Westbrook Got Double Triple-Doubles

How is it possible to notch an NBA-record 10th straight triple-double and still not be the wildest spectacle on your own team? Such is the mild plight of Russell Westbrook, stuffing the box score in the shadow of his happiest-ever co-star, Paul George. Westbrook’s 21-point, 11-assist, 14-rebound line was dwarfed by George’s 47-10-12 in the Thunder’s 120-111 win over Portland on Monday. Leave...

The end of the Thunder-Sixers game was an amazing example of some back-and-forth bone-headedness that could only be accomplished with these underachieving franchises.

After Paul George sunk two free throws to give the Thunder a 113-110 lead with 20 seconds left in the game, Russell Westbrook fouled Joel Embiid on his...

Paul George Is In His Zone

Paul George Is In His Zone

Russell Westbrook needed 22 minutes to get on the board. It didn’t matter, because the Thunder have that other guy , too. Carrying the scoring load for Oklahoma City once again was Paul George, who went off for 33 points, seven rebounds, and six assists, with no turnovers. Behind another wild December night from the fringe MVP candidate, the Thunder took down the Clippers 110-104 Saturday and...

Paul George's Two-Way Brilliance Has The Thunder Kicking Ass

Paul George's Two-Way Brilliance Has The Thunder Kicking Ass

Since starting the season 0-4—a stretch highlighted by giving up 131 points to the then-inept Sacramento Kings at home—the Oklahoma City Thunder have molted and become one of the NBA’s best teams. Blowout wins over elite teams like the Clippers and Warriors have been peppered in amid a tremendous 17-4 stretch, in which they’ve established their defense as the best in the NBA by a healthy...

Woof, The Thunder Really Cannot Make A Bucket

Woof, The Thunder Really Cannot Make A Bucket

It’s only four games, but man, it’s been a discouraging start to the season for the Oklahoma City Thunder. They’re now 0–4, with a home loss to the Sacramento Kings on their record, and what’s ailing them, very simply, is they just cannot put the ball into the basket. They’ve opened the season on a dismal, horrifying cold streak, and are now producing by far the worst offensive rating and...

The OKC Thunder—Yeah, The <i>Thunder</i>—Now Have The Most Expensive Roster In NBA History

In an NBA offseason already filled with earth-shaking moves from the likes of LeBron James and DeMarcus Cousins , it was 34-year-old journeyman point guard Raymond Felton who truly pushed his team into uncharted territory when he resigned with the Thunder for one year and $2.4 million. On the heels of Paul George’s somewhat larger new deal with the team, Felton’s contract gives OKC—if they...
