Oklahoma City Thunder 120, Golden State Warriors 109: 2011-2012 Game 19 Full Recap; Face of the Enemy

As the string of easy games in January come to a close, it's nice to end that streak with a team like the Warriors. There were many entertaining baskets from start to finish, and we got to see a glimpse of what Nate Robinson can do when he's not glued to the bench.

Oklahoma City Thunder 120, Golden State Warriors 109: 2011-2012 Game 19 Quick Recap; Force of Nature

It was yet another Warriors fourth quarter collapse. They managed to keep up with the Thunder all game, but they hit a shooting slump, committed a few turnovers, and the Thunder took full advantage.

Oklahoma City Thunder 101, New Orleans Hornets 91; 2011-2012 Game 18 Full Recap; A Matter of Honor

The Thunder fought through turnovers and scoring in lots of unexpected places, but they knew what they had to do to get the W. The Hornets were definitely a formidable match, but they couldn't get points when it mattered the most. I know, it's pretty much the story of their entire season, but it couldn't have rung more true tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder 101, New Orleans Hornets 91: 2011-2012 Game 18 Quick Recap; The High Ground

The outcome was never too seriously in doubt, but this was still a fun game to watch. After a blowout and two defensive grinds, this game provided some genuine back and forth scoring action.

Oklahoma City Thunder 99, Detroit Pistons 79: 2011-2012 Game 17 Full Recap; Demoralization, Deterioration, and No More Alliteration

When the things that stick out in my mind were awesome Thunder plays on the fast break, Pistons shot clock violations, and Lazar Hayward airballing a three, you know it had to have been a good game.

Oklahoma City Thunder 99, Detroit Pistons 79: 2011-2012 Game 17 Quick Recap; Dangerously Destroying Detroit Despite Daye

Excellent! Tonight was an easy, easy win. The game was pretty much over from the moment it started, with the Thunder dominating offensively, and locking down the paint defensively.

Oklahoma City Thunder 84, New Jersey Nets 74: 2011-2012 Game 16 Full Recap; A Man is Not a Man Unless He Knows How to Shoot

Man, this game was another strange one. It seems that the scouting reports on the Thunder tell other teams to constantly get in our passing lanes and try to force turnovers. And even though there were tons of loose balls tonight, the Thunder actually did better than their season average when it comes to turnovers, and they always seemed to recover the ball.

Oklahoma City Thunder 84, New Jersey Nets 74: 2011-2012 Game 16 Quick Recap; Defense, Missed Shots, and More Defense

It's nice to get a win, but did this game really have to be as close as it was? I mean, a complete defensive shutdown of the Nets is one thing, but our pithy offensive game wasn't much to see tonight.

Washington Wizards 105, Oklahoma City Thunder 102: 2011-2012 Game 15 Quick Recap; Disappointment and Wonder

Did that really just happen? I'm not shocked that we lost, but the game was pretty bizarre on the whole

Oklahoma City Thunder 97, Boston Celtics 88: 2011-2012 Game 14 Full Recap; Clutchness from Sefolosha and Westbrook Helps the Thunder Pull Away Late

We were lucky to get out of that one with a win. I know, I know, it was a great win, and there's no better stylish victory than winning with two clutch threes late in the game. But this game could have been over much, much earlier. I'm talking start of the fourth quarter.

Oklahoma City Thunder 97, Boston Celtics 88: 2011-2012 Game 14 Quick Recap; Winning From Long Range

Looking at tonight's Box Score, one thing stands out. Thabo Sefolosha. 19 Points on 7-9 Shooting? 5 Rebounds, 4 Steals? Yeah, Sefolosha was on fire offensively.

Oklahoma City Thunder 100, Memphis Grizzlies 95; 2011-2012 Game 11 Full Recap; Scrapping, Heat Checking, and Some Missed Free Throws

Watching a game like this is a treat. It's not the type of game where there's lots of insane highlight reel plays, and, conversely, it's not the type of game where it has to come down to the final seconds in order to be interesting.

Portland Trail Blazers 103, Oklahoma City Thunder 93: 2011-2012 Game 7 Full Recap; So Many Bricks, We Should Build a Shelter for the Homeless

Ach, what a painful one to watch. The Trail Blazers proved to be defensive stalwarts in the lane, great ball handlers, and the perfect anti-thesis to the Thunder. After such a strong start to the season, the last two losses have been disheartening.

Dallas Mavericks 100, Oklahoma City Thunder 87; 2011-2012 Game 6 Full Recap; The WCF Nightmares Resurface

Was it really less than a week ago that Kevin Durant threw down on the Dallas Mavericks in OKC? It seems unbelievable in my mind. Today, the Mavericks closed out their fourth game against us in three weeks by totally annihilating us in every way that mattered.
