Steve's Travel Blog: Momentum Building For OKC

Posted: Updated:

If you ask me, Oklahoma City's best win is not opening night against the Spurs, but last Sunday night against the Mavs. Dallas was riding a six-game winning streak and Kevin Durant was not playing. The Thunder rallied at crunch time and turned away the Mavs.

A close second would be the game Monday night in Utah. Oklahoma City quickly turned a minimal deficit to Utah into a double-digit lead. The Jazz struggled to score in the second quarter and it showed again Monday.

What a comeback by Kevin, playing every second in the first quarter and showing no signs of being out for nearly two weeks. The last two games OKC has showed vast improvement on both ends of the court. They should be on a three-game winning streak, but for some reason they couldn't hit a trey against the Knicks. Shake it off and they did just that. The Brooklyn Nets are next Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Nets opened up the year losing seven straight and sit a 3-11, no wonder Oklahoma City is a double-digit favorite tomorrow night.

Keep an eye on the Thunder bench, are they turning the corner? They've looked good the past two games especially Anthony Morrow. That guy has a deadly shot when he's on and for the moment the switch is on.
