Game 75: Thunder @ Trail Blazers

The Thunder were in Portland Friday night to face the same Trail Blazers team they beat on Sunday.

The Thunder got off to a good start, moving fluidly on offense and keeping the quick-strike Portland offense at bay. Thunder led by 10 after 1. In the second quarter, Portland got their offense going, while the Thunder were able to keep pace during the quarter. Thunder led by 6 at halftime. In the third quarter, the wheels fell off for the Thunder. Portland reeled off a 15-0 run, and held the Thunder to only 11 points in the quarter. Thunder trailed by 8 after 3. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder were cold on offense, and were not able to get anything. The Thunder got no closer than 5, and the Thunder lose by 7.

Kevin Durant finished with 25 and 11 rebounds, James Harden added 21, and Russell Westbrook scored 16. Hitting the road again tomorrow night to take on the Clippers. Thunder Up!!!

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
