James Harden vs. Evan Turner...I got my money on David West.
Here's the Thunder's remaining schedule in March: http://t.co/9hfzPRbpb2
Per game, over his last four Westbrook's averaging 24.0 points on 62/53/95, 5.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists in 26.3 minutes a game. He back.
Just looked up Westbrook's per 36 numbers over the last four games. How's this: 32.9 points on 62/53/95 shooting, 7.9 rebounds, 11.7 assists
The Thunder and Spurs are tied in the loss column, but remember: OKC's already locked up the tiebreaker between the two teams.
It's funny ppl really think I smoke!
Durant has played two games in sleeves this year, Christmas at New York & All-Star. He scored 67 points on 24-43 shooting, 10-23 from 3.
KD on sleeves: "I don’t mind. I play in T-shirts. I played in hoodies before. So it don’t matter. Just give us a basketball. We’ll go play."
For panicking Thunder fans: Two of OKC's next three games are against the Lakers. LA is down by 46 in the third quarter right now.
WC Standings update. Spurs now only a half game behind the Thunder, tied in the loss column: http://t.co/6tmeRzGlBq
Russell Westbrook said he had his foot stepped on at the end of the first half. It's why he was limping. Had nothing to do with his knee.
The Thunder is giving up 109.7 points per game since the All-Star break. By game: 103, 125, 114, 107, 99, 92 and 128.
Russell Westbrook's last two games (in only 50 minutes): 49 points, 23 assists, 19 rebounds, 7 steals, 17/31 FG, +41.
What's most telling, is that the Thunder gave up 15-of-27 from 3 and 128 points, but people are complaining most about two freaking shots.
The unfortunate, unfair reality is that some think the only good Westbrook shots are the ones that go in.
Yes, Russ took two iffy shots in crunchtime. But if KD takes 'em, nobody bats an eye. Russ was cooking. Why doesn't he get the same license?
Final: Suns 128, Thunder 122. Phoenix scores an opponent season high on the Thunder. Gerald Green scores a career-high 41 points
Suns beat OKC 128-122. Westbrook 36-9-9, Durant 34-7-5, Ibaka 18, Butler 14.
Final: Phoenix beats the Thunder 128-122. What an impressive performance by the Suns and Gerald Green (41 points).

Serge Ibaka's favorite thing to do on the court is to calm down teammates who are griping at a referee.
Kevin Durant has scored 17 of OKC's last 25 points (via FSN). He now has 22 early in the third quarter.
