Sometimes in the NBA, teams that reach the NBA Finals one year will then come into the next season with the mindset of just breezing by their conference. Not so fast. Similar to the Lakers after they lost in the 2004 NBA Finals, as they came back the next year not even making the playoffs. Hopefully, this doesn’t happen to the Thunder.

Tonight, it was the play of Serge Ibaka with his carer-high 26 points, and shooting 11-11 from the field. But, Kevin Durant closed it out tonight to give the Thunder the win.… Continue reading
