I Got a Feeling - But it Ain't Pretty | January
logo



I would like to first start off by saying that I am under no contractual obligation to write a recap of every single Oklahoma City Thunder game. I am also under no obligation to write positive things about each game. With that being said, I could actually end this article before I truly even begin writing it, considering last night's debacle in Texas.

I don't know where to start. The Thunder got an absolute whooping at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs on the road, 101-74. No, that is not a typo. That was actually the score of last night's train wreck. It was a 27 point beatdown at the hands of the team with the best record in the game. After last night, you don't have to convince Oklahoma City that the Spurs are simply the best. You don't have to convince me either.

Yesterday, I told Jeff Garcia of Project Spurs that I had a feeling that the Thunder would finally pick up their signature win of the season by taking down San Antonio. Throughout the game, I had a different feeling, but I would rather not discuss it with all of you in case you happen to be trying to eat while you are reading this article. Trust me, the words I could use to describe my feelings would not be conducive to digesting.

This is a look at some of the final numbers from last night's disaster. I have to warn you that they are not pretty, so you may want to skip the following part if you tend to get even the least bit queasy.

Box Score:

OKC 17 - 19 - 21- 17 -- 74
SAN 31 - 18 - 28 - 24 -- 101

Russell Westbrook - 3-11 FG - 8 PTS, 6 TO
Kevin Durant - 7-15 FG - 16 PTS, 4 REB
Team FG - 28-85 (32.9 %)
Team FT - 17-24 (70.8 %)
Team 3PT - 1-7 (14.3 %)
Total Assists - SAN - 23 OKC 10

Alright, it is now as safe as it will be to resume reading. Needless to say, it was the Thunder's worst loss of the season. They hit their lowest point total of the season and also recorded their lowest shooting percentage of the season. Their 10 assists tied a season low, and they made just one more field goal than their season low. Oh, and their 19 turnovers were also just one shy of a season high.

Maybe it wasn't safe to resume reading. This is still making me sick.

If you are looking for the silver lining, then the following is the best that I can come up with right now. The Thunder have yet to lose consecutive games. That is not good news for the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night.
