Thunder will miss Mason
Lest anyone questions the value of Desmond Mason, the Thunder thriller against Memphis is Exhibit A.
Late in the third quarter of Wednesday night’s game — with the Thunder humming along and keeping the Grizzlies at double-digit arm’s length — Mason injured his knee. Seeing it live was enough to keep me from wanting to see it again in slow motion. Mason went up to try to block a breakaway dunk by Kyle Lowry, who ended up crashing into Mason’s lower body. It wasn’t intentional. It wasn’t dirty.
But it was ugly.
Mason’s knee buckled, and as soon as he landed on the Ford Center hardwood, he motioned to the Thunder bench. “Send the trainer, and make it snappy,” his look said.
He knew something was wrong.
