  5. Too much Dirk Nowitzki in overtime lifts Mavericks over Thunder

    Mar 26, 2014, 12:45 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though. They did it behind a vintage night from Dirk Nowitzki (well, except he continued to struggle from three going 2-of-8),…

  6. Russell Westbrook’s minute limit might continue into playoffs

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Spencer Hawes

    The Thunder are playing Russell Westbrook less than ever. They’re even sitting him in some back-to-backs. It’s all designed to maximize his availability for the playoffs. Oklahoma City is a legitimate championship contender. There’s no sense risking Westbrook’s health until it matters most. But given how serious every hit to the knee Westbrook absorbs seems,…

  7. Kobe Bryant talks with Jim Buss, reiterates ‘selfish’ desire for Lakers to contend next two seasons

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

  11. Report: Thunder to sign sharpshooting Reggie Williams

    Mar 6, 2014, 11:07 AM EDT

    Reggie Williams

    After ranking third in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have slipped to below league average this year. So, it appears they’ll target outside shooting with their vacant roster spot. Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman: The Thunder is filling its 15th and final roster spot with the signing of shooting…

  12. Serge Ibaka sends Al Jefferson’s shot into the crowd

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Oklahoma City Thunder

    That’s an emphatic block. Al Jefferson has more post moves than you can count, but Serge Ibaka was ready for this one and blocked the shot. Hard. I mean it only went into the first row because he had to send it deep across the court first. That’s as big a block as you will…

    Feb 27, 2014, 6:45 PM EDT

    Heat Mavericks

    This is not a surprise, and coaches always tend to cover their bases when speaking to media, but it looks like LeBron James is a go against the Knicks wearing a mask to protect his broken nose. Erik Spoelstra says LeBron went through walkthrough and anticipation is he plays, "So I would say in strong…

    Kyrie Irving, Serge Ibaka

    After hearing Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brook say he’s “concerned about making sure that every shot is contested,” NBA.com’s John Schumann tested the numbers.

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers.

  16. Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins out six weeks after surgery to repair groin injury

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks will not be able to lean on Kendrick Perkins for the next six weeks — something that will be welcomed by a lot of Thunder fans. At least until they see the team is 0-3 without him this season and the defense suffers. Perkins will be out up to six…

  18. Heat announce LeBron James suffered broken nose, will be a gametime decision Sunday

    Feb 21, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Heat Mavericks

    LeBron James was dominant in leading the Heat to a blowout win over the Thunder on Thursday, but the victory didn’t come without cost. James took a shot to the face from Serge Ibaka on a play late in the game where he ended up dunking the ball anyway, but it bloodied him and he was forced…

    When the above play happened late in the fourth quarter Thursday and blood spilled on the floor, you had to wonder if LeBron James had a broken nose and/or a concussion.

    Feb 14, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The Thunder have an above-average 3-point percentage and a top-end defense. But in the hunt for a title, Oklahoma City is leaving nothing to chance.

  21. Report: Don’t expect a Greg Monroe trade (unless it’s a blockbuster)

    Feb 10, 2014, 10:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    Greg Monroe is going to be the name at the heart of a lot of trade rumors the next 10 days. The reason is this: Monroe is a restricted free agent this summer, the Pistons have three more years of Josh Smith at $12 million a year, and coming soon they are going to have…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  23. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EDT
