Playing without the NBA’s leading scorer, the Oklahoma City Thunder needed three overtimes to defeat the lowly New Jersey Nets earlier this month. They seemingly shouldn’t have as much trouble in a rematch with Kevin Durant healthy.
Amare Stoudemire scored 23 points, Wilson Chandler added 21, and the New York Knicks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-98 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
It didn’t take long for the New York Knicks to go from surging to struggling. Their struggles might not be about to end.
The New York Mets might as well offer Amar’e Stoudemire a $10 million deal for next summer, because STAT is rapidly becoming the most talked about closer in town.
The New York Knicks are the hottest team in the NBA. When was the last time you could say that?
Russell Westbrook capped a 38-point, 15-rebound, nine-assist performance by scoring all of Oklahoma City’s 13 points in the third overtime, and the Thunder defeated the Nets 123-120 on Wednesday.
