To the notes.
- If you missed it, the Thunder rested Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and Andre Roberson.
- Hey, the Thunder actually kind of had a chance to win this one late. They got it to eight with about 90 seconds left, and Anthony Morrow had a clean look that could’ve made it five. For a lot of the game, the Blazers had their way and were coasting. But a strong push early in the fourth kept them in it, and with an Enes Kanter barrage, they trimmed it to single digits with a few minutes left. It was almost the perfect result (except for the, you know, winning part): They play reasonably well, have a chance, and a lot of the bench guys do positive things. Starting with…
- Enes Kanter. The first 30-20 in Thunder history. And he did it in just 36 minutes. In total, 33 (13-18 shooting) points and 20 rebounds.
