So, the Thunder are catching some breaks. Not that they need them, but for the sixth consecutive games, the Thunder will be playing a team missing their best player. (Though I suppose it could be debatable whether or not Carmelo Anthony is New York’s best player.) Doesn’t take anything away in my mind — just the breaks of a season.
Also, the last time the Knicks came to Oklahoma City? This.
