Thunder routs Rockets 98-80 for seventh consecutive win - Nov 9, 2018

Jerami Grant
Jerami Grant (6'8''-F-94, college: Syracuse) had an eventful possession in the third quarter against the Rockets, not just for the 18,203 at Chesapeake Energy Arena but the Thunder organization. The 6-foot-9 Grant drove to the basket and contorted once he arrived. His shot angle was closed off, so he smartly passed out to Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.). When Steven Adams (7'0''-C/F-93, college: Pittsburgh) corralled George's missed shot, Grant shot up the lane and Adams smartly bounced a pass into his path. Grant finished this time on one of those left-handed scoops he didn't have in his arsenal when the Thunder traded for him in 2016. 'We got stops, we turned it into offense, and we just played faster,' said George, saying what could be the Thunder's slogan. The Thunder's 98-80 demolition of the Rockets on Thursday was the organization's vision made tangible for at least one night, Game 11 of an 82-game season. Teams like the Rockets and Warriors will more than certainly finish the season with more 3-pointers made and better field goal percentages than the often-off-shooting Thunder. But you'll be hard-pressed to find a team that makes the Rockets and Warriors grimace more than the Thunder, who pushed its winning streak to seven games and swept a back-to-back for the second time this season with relative ease. 'We're playing like we're hungry,' Thunder guard Raymond Felton said. 'We've just got to keep that (up).' The Thunder was actually keeping up with the Rockets from 3, each team with eight until Gerald Green (6'8''-G/F-86) canned a 3-pointer in the third quarter. Response: Dennis Schroeder (5'11''-PG-93) threw a ball to the moon to Grant for an alley-oop, and Grant naturally finished it with ease and outstretched arms. No Rocket jumped because the pass, frankly, didn't seem reachable, at least not to anyone in red. The Thunder's lead ballooned to 80-60 by the end of the third quarter thanks to Grant's 11 points in the period. On the other side was the former Thunder starting power forward. Carmelo Anthony (6'8''-SF-84, college: Syracuse) received a warm welcome from former teammates George and Russell Westbrook, the trio sharing hugs and laughs at halftime. Westbrook could laugh because he was out for the second straight game with a left ankle sprain. By then, the Thunder was ahead by 14 and the athleticism gap between the two Western Conference foes was stark. Whether it was Adams (19 points, 10 rebounds) isolated in the post against James Harden when the Rockets tried to switch defenders, or Terrance Ferguson rotating over in a flash defensively for a block from behind, the Thunder was everywhere and athletic. The Rockets were stationary and ground-bound. During a 21-6 run to end the second quarter, Anthony was in the crosshairs. George and Schroder each picked spots to isolate against him for baskets the way the Thunder's opponents did last season. The main reason the Rockets couldn't launch against the Thunder, however, was OKC's athletic mismatches on both ends. And yes, Ferguson was a part of that. Ferguson made 4-of-9 3-pointers for 14 points, but his highlight reel was on defense. By the end of the first half, he was using all of his 6-foot-7 frame to pick Chris Paul's pocket cleanly, then force the future Hall of Famer into a contested jump shot. 'It's no lack of size, no lack of quick feet, quick hands,' George said of the Thunder's ability to switch on defense. 'It allows us to kind of dictate what we want the other team to do on offense.' There will be far more competitive Thunder-Rockets matchups, but on Thursday, the Thunder's latest win was its best example of using its advantages to not just dictate, but dominate.

Buddy Hield
Hield helps Kings hold off Westbrook, Thunder 117-113 - 9 hours ago
The Kings sprinted out to a big lead and used their up-and-down style to put Oklahoma City on its heels. Then they got a big lift from Buddy Hield (6'4''-G-93, college: Oklahoma)'s perimeter shooting to finish off the Thunder. Dave Joerger also got a bit of love from the Golden1 Center crowd after reports surfaced over the weekend that the Sacramento coach was at odds with management over the direction of the team. Hield made three consecutive 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter and sco...   [read more]
