The first half is over, the second half starts tomorrow and the stretch run lingers in the immediate future.
Should be an interesting one, especially in Thunder land.
But before it all starts Wednesday in Houston, let’s take a look back at the first half, counting down the top-10 plays and moments from OKC’s athletic batch of hoopers:
10. Russell’s tomahawk
Westbrook can be an angry dude on the basketball court. And sometimes he takes it out on the rim.
9. The legendary Perkins Pose
Ever since, I’ve been ending my jumpers at the rec with this
8. Capping the Clippers
Dunks are exponentially better when you get a confused Vinny Del Negro look after
Always impressive when you get Kobe
6. No Mascot love
Hey, I’m not a trained referee, but I’m pretty sure that’s goaltending
5. Air Congo
Because we haven’t had an alley oop yet
4. Marcin, meet Kevin
Beasley’s awful defense deserves an assist for this poster
3. Behind the back magic
My personal favorite play of the first half. Perkins the point guard
2. KD 52
A whole lotta points from the NBA’s three-time scoring champ
1. Durant’s swat and stuff
The Mavs abuse continues. Durant torches his Dallas rival
