Portland Trail Blazers 103, Oklahoma City 93; 2011-2012 Game 7 Quick Recap

Box Score

The Blazers hand the Thunder its' second straight loss tonight. The Thunder struggled offensively, allowing the Trailblazers to pull away in the second half.

Kevin Durant had 19 points on 8-for-26 shooting tonight. If that wasn't enough to doom the Thunder, Westbrook, 22 points, went only 8-for-18. Portland was able to pull away late in the third, going on a 13-4 run to take the lead for good. Altogether, the Thunder shot only 13-for-38 in the second half.

LaMarcus Aldridge lead the way for the Blazers with 30. Although the Thunder defense was not to blame tonight. After playing 7 games in 10 days, OKC seemed to lack any sort of aggressiveness on offense tonight. To put it in perspective, Portland shot 36 free throws tonight, making 29. While the Thunder only attempted 21 at the foul line. In addition to the Portland starters were also able to out rebound the Thunder starters 33-24

Thabo Sefolosha was held out today due to flu-like symptoms. Which meant James Harden, the team's leading scorer with 23, got the start tonight. Without Harden, the Thunder bench only scored 14 points.

The good news for the Thunder? They get the next two days off before beginning the dreadful back-back-back stretch starting Friday.

Thunder Wonder: James Harden, 23 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds

Thunder Down Under: Nick Collison, 6 points, 9 rebounds
