The Thunder Held A Team Meeting After Their Fourth Straight Loss

The Thunder Held A Team Meeting After Their Fourth Straight Loss

Oklahoma City (4-7) capped an empty three-game road trip with a 100-92 loss at Denver that was also their fourth straight loss overall.

The Los Angeles Clippers continue to search for a new identity without Chris Paul.

"We had a hard time beating that team a year ago and we all know that", Malone said. "Right now, we're going through ours".

And why not? Mudiay scored 11 first-half points, helping turn a double-digit deficit into a back-and-forth affair.

It was tied at 75 after three quarters, and the Nuggets quickly took the lead and didn't give it up.

Oklahoma City brought the NBA's latest "Big 3" to Denver on Thursday night, including former Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony. Taking the over at 209.5 points feels like a more confident play given the factors going against the Clippers with their porous defense, and even with the Thunder playing on back-to-back nights, there's a feeling there are points to be had.

Duke hauls in its third-straight No. 1 player in RJ Barrett
Barrett, the lefty from Montverde Academy, committed to the Blue Devils on Friday night over finalists Kentucky and Oregon . Reddish, who is 6-7, 211 pounds, is the No. 3 ranked small forward behind Barrett and Zion Williamson, also a Duke target.

Not only have they lost seven of their first 11 games of the season, but the Thunder remain winless against their own Western Conference, reaching the 0-6 mark with yesterday's loss.

And the team does appear to be talking about it, viewing a 4-7 start to the season as a mere bit of rain.

"It could go two ways", Anthony said. Oklahoma City have recorded 14 or more steals in five games and are among the league leaders with 19.8 points per game off opponents' turnovers. "I know we complain about back-to-backs but sometimes the back-to-backs are in our favor as players because you get to put that game behind you".

Thunder: Westbrook was treated for a facial cut early in the game after taking an elbow to the face while guarding Jokic. Beyond his impact on the floor, Anthony has proven to be a steadying influence in the locker room. Coach said his peace. He did not miss a shot until the game's final two minutes.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Friday in National Basketball Association action at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Nuggets: Wrap up a season-long six-game homestand on Saturday night when they host Orlando.
