Thunder steals Orlando's magic
A last-second battle is what defines last night's game against Orlando Magic. The result was very close (125-124) but even with a 3-pointer at the buzzer, Magic found the Thunder unstoppable.
Unstoppable is the perfect definition of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook's appearance - together they combined 68 points which gave the Thunder the fourth straight win.
Durant led OKC with 36 points (his third straight game with more than 30 points) while Westbrook added his second triple-double of the season with 32 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds.
OKC started the fourth quarter very well by taking the largest lead of the game at 98-86 which was the main indicator of the last night's winner.
Orlando's center, Dwight Howard scored high numbers - yes, higher than KD. He added 39 points and 18 rebounds as his team went home with a loss.
OKC's next game is against LA Lakers.
We need our team to get ready, relax, have a massage, sleep and eat well. Even though the Lakers are favored to win this game, the Thunder has the opportunity to show people that being an underdog has it's own advantages, while the Lakers have the disadvantages of the overdog.
Until then, Thunderup!!!
