Kuzmania Runs Wild in OKC

By Connor MacKenzie @grandepadre94 Kyle Kuzma came into the Peake with a purpose and lit up the Oklahoma City Thunder for 32 points on 11-20 shooting (7-12 from deep).

It’s hard to believe, but the Thunder were up 37-20 towards the end … Continue reading Kuzmania Runs Wild in OKC

Hawks Soar as Thunder Defense Crumbles

By Connor MacKenzie @grandepadre94 Lets face it, the Thunder should not have dropped this game. The Thunder have been on a rollercoaster the last 10 games (5-5), and their defense has suffered greatly. One could argue they need Andre Roberson back as soon as possible, and that is valid, however they have been top 5 defensively all season up until this point.    The Hawks … Continue reading Hawks Soar as Thunder Defense Crumbles

Aldridge Spurs the Thunder

By Connor MacKenzie @grandepadre94 The San Antonio Spurs used hot shooting and a hungry LaMarcus Aldridge to fuel a game for the ages, a 154-147 2OT thriller. Aldridge had a career high 56 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists. He was white hot all night. Patented turnaround midrange jumper, catch-and-shoot, or old school pound in the paint. Adams did his work to force Aldridge outside, … Continue reading Aldridge Spurs the Thunder

Thunder Thump Lakers in LaLa Land

By Connor MacKenzie   To say the Thunder had a rocky start (more so 3 and a half quarters) shooting and defending the ball,would be an understatement. However, as elite teams do, they escaped Los Angeles with a 107-100 victory.    Paul George heard his fair share of boos upon his return to the city of Angels and got into early foul trouble in the … Continue reading Thunder Thump Lakers in LaLa Land

Oklahoma Sports Fans, reminisce

Scheduling Kills the Terps chances for 8 Wins

By Zach Lutz | @zachlutz6 Since arriving in the Big Ten in 2014, saying it’s been an uphill battle for Maryland is an overstatement.
