Great radio calls on back to back 3s by Matt Pinto. Nothing new. #Thunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

W all due respect, don't confuse Serge Ibaka's 4 for 4 3-point shooting w a good game. In 32 mins he ha 3 rbds & has again been a 'witness'

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

You gotta hand it to Dre. When he catches a pass he immediately looks to pass, unless he has a wide open corner 3.

Why isn't Waiters a good free throw shooter?

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Portland hits at buzzer off a Thunder turnover. OK leads 85-80 after three. A 39pt quarter for OKC. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

It bears repeating ... This season, @KDTrey5 is not getting the calls he and superstars normally get. #Thunder @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

KD T'd up too #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Dion, son! Yes.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Sweet bounce pass from Dion. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Most high-scoring point gad who are 1 of 9 at half need benching. But @RussWest44 is 3 rbds from a 3rd qtr triple double & is unstoppable.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Down 10? Thunder up 5 with help from KD and Russ. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Russ going to work with Adams, 3 dunks. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Durant is feeling it, 25 pts. Thunder down one.

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Better possesions, OKC only down 2. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Lillard warming up, Blazers up 10. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Lookout Blazers. Russell has that look in his eye. Triple double and OKC win wouldn't surprise me. @okcthunder

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

In 11 minutes of play Andre Roberson has outscored Russell Westbrook and Sege Ibaka...combined. #Thunder @News9

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Blazers 52 Thunder 46 Half Russ-10 assists, KD-14 points #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) January 11, 2016

Russ 1 of 9 ... and Serge still hasn't figured out the Thunder is on a road trip. Otherwise, OKC down 6 at intermission after sloppy 2nd qtr

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

The bad news is Portland's wearing Thunder out and Lillard isn't doing anything...yet.

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Aminu the latest Thunder opponent to have career night. Er route to shattering career high 17 its ... 'Der making him look like Elgin Baylor

— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) January 11, 2016

Adams is gonna wind up being an effective offensive center in this league. But #Thunder trail weak Portland, 44-41.
