So this one is going to be a loss right? It's one thing to beat the now 15 and 12 Dallas Mavericks. It's another to beat the league-leading, 22 and 4 Oklahoma City Thunder, tonight's opponent.
The Thunder have won nine of their last 10 games including last night's 113 to 100 win over the always tough, San Antonio Spurs who had Duncan, Parker and Ginobili all in action. Beyond their big three of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka, the club's gotten terrific contributions from Reggie Jackson and solid play from youngsters like Jeremy Lamb and Steven Adams.
"What about Kevin Martin?"
"James Harden? Who's that?"
And on and on.
Yep, the Thunder hasn't missed a beat and tonight should be a very tough test for the Dinos despite their resilient play of late.
