Ibaka Returns, Thunder Roll

Serge Ibaka returned to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night for Game 3 of their series against the San Antonio Spurs. After originally being diagnosed with a "season ending" calf injury, Ibaka returned with a bang and made a huge impact in OKC's 107-96 victory. Big Serge finished with 15 points, seven rebounds and most importantly four rather large blocks, something that had been sorely missed for the Thunder in his absence. [embedvideo id="COeD0GljzLI" website="youtube"] Ibaka and Co. got a much needed win and made this into a series. While they...

Kevin Durant – Lights Out Portland

We have all heard the stories of Kevin Durant being "number two" in so many aspects of his NBA career. When it comes to scoring the ball however, right now there is no equal. KD torched the Portland Trailblazers for 46 points including 11 in the final 3:30 of Tuesday night's contest to give his Oklahoma City Thunder a spectacular 105-97 victory. Durant didn't just score though, he scored AT the Blazers as they came to him, and barked AT their bench after tying the game. Check...

Russ Wipes Floor, OKC wipes floor with Knicks

[embedvideo id="FlsIBN_aa-M" website="youtube"] When it comes to sports metaphors and housework, we've all heard the term "wiping the floor with your opponent" as well as simply wiping a floor in general. Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder did both on Christmas Day in their 123-94 demolition of the Melo-less New York Knicks. Showing off some pretty impressive home maintenance skills, Westbrook took charge late in the third quarter cleaning up the sweaty Madison Square Garden floor. He then went on to record a triple-double (14p, 13r, 10a)...

Phantom Cam Does It Again

[embedvideo id="nBucGQTfPlM" website="youtube"] Not to suggest for a minute that this play would look less than awesome in real time but we're talking about PHANTOM CAM here! Just like all of Doctor J's and Michael Jordan's moves and many more since, the slow motion really let's you stop, relax and enjoy the pure brutality of Mr Kevin Durant slamming one home with the foul. [caption id="attachment_5415" align="aligncenter" width="650"] All in a day's work for KD.[/caption] Good times indeed. Thanks NBA cameraman. Follow @HendoHoops // ...

Westbrook Dagger, Durant Hug

[embedvideo id="BYa3csXve10" website="youtube"] Russell Westbrook hit a monstrous three-point basket on Friday night to give his Oklahoma City Thunder a 113-112 win against the Golden State Warriors. In a broken, desperation play to end the game Westbrook contested the offensive rebound, corralled the hustle save from out-of-bounds by teammate Jeremy Lamb and hit a turnaround triple with 0.1 remaining on the game clock. Dagger. It was a solid outing for Westbrook who finished with 34 points, seven rebounds and five steals. His running mate Kevin Durant had a frustrating...

Jingle Hoops and horrible jerseys

[embedvideo id="EYEHUOpwNvE" website="youtube"] If there's one thing we can count on, it's the NBA making more money while also keeping us supremely entertained. This NBA Christmas Day commercial featuring Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Steve Nash and LeBron James is certainly a testament to the entertainment side of things. And then there's the awful jerseys that will make the NBA a lot of money. Here's Derrick Rose wondering what the hell happened to Christmas: As for the photographer, well he'll tell his Grand-children one day how he...

Nut Punch City Limits – Griffin Wins

The NBA handed out a $25,000 fine to Serge Ibaka today for clubbing Blake Griffin in the junk during a game in Los Angeles on Sunday. The altercation, which was called a Flagrant Foul 1 at the time of incident was also retrospectively upgraded to a Flagrant Foul 2 which would have ejected Ibaka from the game if called live. In a tight battle the Oklahoma City Thunder went on to win the game at Los Angeles 108-104. A task that perhaps would have been made much...

KD imitates the good Doctor?

[youtube id="a-2L7SR-1Ng" mode="normal" align="center"] While the Oklahoma City Thunder were unable to secure a victory on Friday night in Denver, Kevin Durant certainly won Play of the Game honours for this magnificent swooping up-and-under lay up. While some have compared this move to Doctor J's frozen moment, I'm not convinced. It looks a lot more like Michael Jordan's work to me....
