What to watch for as Thunder begin three-game road trip on Saturday

In the first half, he put up 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting with five assists, three rebounds and two steals.

George added 27 points and nine rebounds. The Thunder are tough defensive team anchored by underrated center Steven Adams.

As of this writing, the Oklahoma City Thunder are 10-5. Adams had another double-double of 11 points and 15 rebounds for Oklahoma City, who had been an NBA-best 10-1 over their previous 11 games.

Shumpert scored 13 of his points in that initial push before the Thunder started cutting into the lead. Westbrook missed six consecutive games, for both the injury and the birth of his twin daughters over the weekend. And Schroder really seems to be a ideal third guard to its rotation.

Kevin Durant explains why he snapped at heckling fan
It has been reported the Dallas fan, who was sitting underneath the basket, bombarded Durant - one of the NBA's biggest stars - with insults both before and after he delivered the expletive-laden outburst.

Sacramento has dropped its past two outings, with losses to the Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies.

Second-year guard DeAaron Fox has made significant strides in his second season.

The Thunder fell behind 14-2 to start the game and trailed by as many as 19 points in the first quarter. Rounding out the Kings top-5 is Bogdan Bogdanovic and Marvin Bagley III. Monday night, though, he would return against the Sacramento Kings.

That was part of a four-game, season-opening losing streak for Oklahoma City, which has since won 10 of 11, including 110-100 on Saturday night in Phoenix to open a three-game Western swing. Excitement is running high, because just being.500 is a huge accomplishment for a team with over a decade of losing under its belt most recently.
