Game 68 48-19 Cats @ 37-30 Thunder
The Thunder beat the Bobcats in OT. The Cats would have won in regulation had it not been for their woeful FT%. and their turnovers. The Thunder had the Bobcats number from tip off and never allowed the Cats to have a substantial lead. The Thunder held an 8-3 lead in the 1st quarter. The cats stormed back and the game was tied at the end of the 1st. The cats held a 7 point lead at halftime. The Cats became complacent and allowed the Thunder to hang around. The Thunder eventually tied the game in the final seconds and sent it into overtime. In the OT the Thunder quickly jumped out to a 51-47 lead. Neither team scored for 1:30 when the Cats cut the lead to two. It then became a foul fest. With 4 seconds left the Cats could not hit the tying three and it was all she wrote. 2 fouls later and the old lady sang the note she wrote. A note that saddened the Cats. When Nissley was asked about the loss his only reply was "STUPID FREE THROWS!"
Durant went down in the first quarter and will be out 1-2 weeks with a Lower Back Strain
James Harden will play hurt for 1-2 weeks with Back Spasms.
Odd Stat of the Night:
Sefolosha had only 1 assist and 1 steal in 9 minutes.
LAC recall Deandre Jordan
2nd worst team Suns fire Alvin Gentry and sign Alvin Wilkes
Game 69 48-20 Cats @ 3-32 Spurs
The Spurs take out the Cats 56-51 due to the inability of the Cats to hold onto the ball. The Cats held a nice 26-18 lead at Halftime. But, just like the last game the Cats came out of the locker room complacent. The game was tight from then until the end of the fourth where the Cats could not capitalize on the Spurs missed free throws.
Notes: Manu Ginobili is day to day with a sore wrist. Manu begged for a flagrant but his plea was denied.
