UPDATE: Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports Kevin Durant is unlikely to play tonight. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that’s probably bad. But if there was ever a night for Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka to play out of their minds, and for a guy like James Harden to bust out with a 20-plus point game, this would be it.
The longest streak so far this season for the Thunder is two. To make that three, well, the Thunder’s going to have to play their best game of the season.
Really, if you look at OKC’s schedule these first three weeks, it’s been fairly brutal. Only one loss is unforgivable and that was to the Clippers. But winning in Boston isn’t something expected, but to this point, the Thunder’s playing their best basketball. But they’ll have to play even better than that to win in Boston. Keep Reading…
