But the clock is running out. Anthony Morrow returned on Tuesday and will soon get more minutes. Andre Roberson and Perry Jones are days away. Kevin Durant is weeks away. So the Lance Thomas era is soon to come to an end. And he’s making sure to get up shots while he still can. Thomas has been mostly useful these past few weeks, chipping in with his defensive hustle and his around-the-rim energy. But on Tuesday, he was bad. Right from the tip, Thomas started firing up some ill-advised looks, tossing up far too many outside jumpers. At the end of the first quarter, he was 0-of-6 shooting with two turnovers. By the end of the night, he was 2-of-10. It’s already the fourth game this season he’s had double-digit shot attempts. Pretty soon, all those (and more) will be going to the MVP. Oklahoman
