Dec 19: Thunder 91, Raptors 83Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: With orange and blue streamers falling from the rafters and the crowd standing to cheer, it could’ve easily been mistaken for a much more significant victory. For the Oklahoma City Thunder, every win has become something to savor… Kevin Durant had a tiebreaking 3-pointer among his 24 points, rookie Russell Westbrook scored 19 and the Thunder snapped an 11-game home losing streak with a 91-83 win against the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. It was the team’s first win at the Ford Center in 47 days… Bosh led the Raptors with 22 points and 16 rebounds for his 13th double-double, but he didn’t have enough help after Jermaine O’Neal missed the second half with a sore left shoulder. Andrea Bargnani took the place of the injured six-time All-Star, who said he expected to play Saturday night at San Antonio, and finished with 16 points off the bench.
