Oklahoma City Thunder Basketball - Thunder News, Scores, Stats, Rumors & More

Regular Season

Come March, the NBA’s competition committee will look at a number of solutions to when a player steps out of bounds without a whistle being called on the floor, a league spokesperson said.

The NBA’s last two minute report confirms Giannis Antetokounmpo did indeed step out of bounds before his game-winning basket.

Yes, Antetokounmpo stepped out of bounds, but he got the superstar call

The Bucks escaped Oklahoma City with a win over the Thunder after a dunk from Giannis Antetokounmpo was permitted, despite replays showcasing he stepped out of bounds on the baseline before reaching the rim.

Official Derrick Stafford on the final sequence where Giannis stepped out of bounds before a game-winning dunk: “In any reviewable matter, there has to be a whistle called on the floor. There was no whistle sucked for the play, so we couldn’t review it.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points, including the questionable game-winning basket with 1.Three seconds left, and the Milwaukee Bucks ended Oklahoma City’s six-game winning streak, striking the Thunder 97-95 on Friday night.

The Thunder’s six-game streak comes to an end, and in fairly an interesting manner. Without Paul George, Russell Westbrook went for 40 on 18-34 shooting, including a game-tying Three with Four.7 seconds left. The Bucks re-took the lead on a Giannis finish at the rim with 1.1, but it was pretty clear his foot his the baseline on his drive to the basket. The play was not reviewable, and a full-court heave by Westbrook hit the bottom of the net.

Russell Westbrook has a library total of amazing dunks and poster variations of those dunks, but he may have registered his best ever with an absolute detonation over Thon Maker.

Opening 2nd half excursion for the Thunder, Westbrook looked for Anthony, and drew a defensive three 2nd call. And instead of taking it himself, as he normally does, Westbrook told Anthony to shoot the free throw, in an demonstrable effort to get him going. Right after, Anthony spun his man and finished at the rim.

Carmelo Anthony with only four shots in the very first half, which seems low given Paul George is out. But unless he’s screening, Anthony scarcely moves on offense. So with OKC attempting to limit his midrange isos, and less space/movement without George, Westbrook is going to have to work extra hard to create shots for Anthony.

After eyeing their offense unlock during a six-game winning streak, with Paul George sidelined, the Thunder have experienced a big offensive setback with only Eighteen points in the very first quarter. There’s no flow or rhythm, with possessions dragging out into messy isolations.

Billy Donovan says Paul George missed practice yesterday after mentioning some knee soreness, and they’ll see how he feels tomorrow in terms of status for Sunday’s game.

The Raptors will be without forward Serge Ibaka on Friday against the Hawks after the team suspended him for an incident involving a staff member.

Paul George is out tonight against the Bucks with left knee soreness.

Russell Westbrook asked about preparing for the Bucks tonight: “When we’re at our best, I don’t think nobody can mess with us.”
