  • Thunder Falls in Defensive Battle – OKC 96 WAS 102    
   By Nick Gallo | Thunder Basketball Writer

Jokic notched his third triple-double of the season with 29 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds.

Paul George pointed out the same. Whether it was his battles versus (then Miami Heat) LeBron James or nearly single handedly beating the Raptors in the post season. You can't argue with him. Murray also finished strong with 33 points, five assists, and three rebounds. He even got into a bit shoot out with Russell Westbrook down the stretch as they ended up trading baskets for a bit.

Alright, so given my Canadian heritage perhaps I have a bias.

All that and more in this NBA Wrap! They also have a revenge factor in play here as the Thunder edged Denver 95-94 in the last meeting in OKC on December 18. "It's totally unacceptable", Westbrook told reporters after the loss.

Murray's nine points paired with other offensive contributions from guards Will Barton and Emmanuel Mudiay gave the Nuggets a comfortable 72-57 lead entering halftime. This is a seven foot center defending a guard. "He should be happy he didn't get knocked out".

Who the Public Likes: As of Thursday afternoon, 73 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Thunder. "Kind of set an illegal screen, whatever". He managed, however, to dish out 21 assists while committing only three turnovers.

Among them are speed skaters Ivan Skobrev, a two-time medalist at the Vancouver 2010 Games, and Artem Kuznetcov. Olympic officials have cleared 169 Russian athletes for competition in Pyeongchang.

After that, the Thunder and Nuggets weren't really concerned with defense in the first half, especially OKC. Approximately 5.1 seconds elapsed before Jokic hurled the ball across the court to an open Gary Harris for the game-winning three-pointer.

"I probably would have ran out there", said Grant, who had drawn two charges before the game's last play.

In the post game report Westbrook, seemingly confirmed it was the latter. Westbrook could face a suspension or a fine. Was the fan in his ear all game?

"They'll look at it and figure out what's the best way to deal with it, but to me, that's just totally unacceptable".

The incident is likely to raise questions about courtside security measures and player - fan interactions in the National Basketball Association, where supporters' close proximity to the playing arena makes for a unique vantage point.

The NBA says it will review the incident. But it was what happened after the buzzer that had fans buzzing. What the Thunder does require, however, is an attitude of vigilance to play at a sustainable level, one that it has displayed over the past two months with much more frequency. Let the players play and just call blatant calls. "Russ had to help with - I think that was Chandler in the paint", he said.
