After a 109-99 win at Milwaukee on Saturday, the Thunder will enjoy four days off before its showdown with San Antonio on Thursday inside Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Thunder is 0-2 when it has at least four days rest, with losses at Miami on Christmas and at Houston in the first game out of the All-Star break.
“We're going to get some rest and we're going to come out and practice hard and we'll be ready,” said Kevin Durant. “Four days off in this league is always good no matter who you are. So we got to recover well and practice well and be ready.”
REBOUNDING A GROWING CONCERN
The Thunder allowed the Bucks to grab 19 offensive rebounds Saturday, the second time in six games that OKC allowed 19 offensive rebounds.
Oklahoma City yielded 12.6 offensive rebounds in March and 14.6 in the final seven games.
The Thunder is now tied for third-to-last in offensive rebounds allowed at 12.1 per game. Denver (12.4) and Milwaukee (12.5) rank 29th and 30th, respectively.
Ibaka on his desire to lead the league in shot blocking again: “It's not really my obsession. But it's great, too, when you know you work hard and you give everything. But it's not really my obsession.”
