Weed is now legal in Colorado, so maybe it’s not all that surprising the Thunder basically looked stoned for 48 minutes tonight in Denver.
(What’s the statute of limitations on making a pot joke for my lede here? That’s still relevant enough right?)
There’s really no better way to describe the way the Thunder played Thursday against the Nuggets than by calling it “frustrating.” It wasn’t that Oklahoma City just played poorly, it’s that they didn’t even look like themselves but for a few sporadic minutes here and there. At certain moments, I wondered if they were even trying. For a team that supposedly prides itself on “competing every night,” they certainly didn’t live up to that standard.
