For a minute, it looked like the Thunder might be in for a game.
And then they tipped off.
OK, that’s not entirely fair. The score after a quarter was 28-25, and the Bobcats appeared to be somewhat competitive. But a 30-15 second quarter that saw the Thunder score 58 at the half with 55 coming from Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden essentially put this one away early. As it should’ve been.
The Thunder obviously wanted to wash the strain of Friday’s home loss to the Cavs away and by good fortune, the Bobcats were in town. It was one of those games that would be judged based on how crisp and clean the Thunder played, not necessarily the final line.
Verdict? Pretty good job, Thunder. Keep Reading…
