Did you know KD used to idolize Vinsanity? -> bit.ly/VbofrS @anthonyVslater 8:29 p.m. The last time OKC played the Mavs, KD did this to Chris Kaman: youtube.com/watch?v=WRnk0k… @anthonyVslater 8:38 p.m. Thunder has won five straight. Mavs have won four straight. The NBA's two longest winning streaks on the line in Dallas tonight. @RohdeOK 8:45 p.m. Huge ovation when @KDTrey5 introduced in pre-game at Dallas. No boos ... on the road. Remarkable. @RohdeOK 8:50 p.m. Thunder is 2-2 in its "alternate" navy blue uniforms, with two straight losses at Minnesota and at Washington. @anthonyVslater 9:04 p.m. Russell Westbrook continues his hot shooting (5/8 for 10 points early). He's 42% on the season, but 60% the past three games. @RohdeOK 9:04 p.m. A scout seated at press row said of @KDTrey5: “You guys are spoiled getting to watch him.” True dat. @anthonyVslater 9:06 p.m. Ninth straight game DeAndre Liggins has got minutes. Safe to say he's found a spot in the Thunder rotation. @RohdeOK 9:07 p.m. "Vincanity" still has something left to his game, and often shows it against #Thunder. @RohdeOK 9:08 p.m. Dirk's back, but not all the way back. No explosion on last transition. @anthonyVslater 9:10 p.m. Thunder up 30-22 on Dallas after one. Westbrook with 10, KD with 9, Dirk with 0 on 0/4 shooting. @RohdeOK 9:12 p.m. Dirk went scoreless in nine first-quarter minutes (0/4 FG). OKC leads 30-22. @okcthunder 9:14 p.m. Close first quarter in Dallas, but Thunder finishes strong, up 30-22 at the end of Q1. Russell leads all scorers with 10pts, Perk has 4rebs. @RohdeOK 9:22 p.m. Dirk got a technical during timeout, and then got benched. @anthonyVslater 9:24 p.m. Jeff Van Gundy on the Thunder: "I like their balance and I like their size. I don't really see a hole on Oklahoma City." @anthonyVslater 9:27 p.m. Jeff Van Gundy going on one of his classic soapboxes on 'soft' flagrant fouls. Russell Westbrook listening in. Pure comedy. @okcthunder 9:28 p.m. RT @Tulsa66ers: We have a close one here in Bixby! Tulsa trails 99-94 with 40 seconds left. Catch it live on YouTube: http://t.co/PU8Ao3 ... @RohdeOK 9:36 p.m. Ibaka's defense against Dirk has improved immensely. Doesn't go for head fake nearly as much to try and block his shot. @okcthunder 9:36 p.m. Group of Thunder fans enjoying tonight's game from a suite in Dallas; they're our #ThunderRoadTrip winners! pic.twitter.com/MZJ49i6C @RohdeOK 9:38 p.m. Thunder getting careless with ball. Three turnovers in last three minutes. @anthonyVslater 9:39 p.m. Dirk and Elton Brand a combined 0/10 shooting. @RohdeOK 9:43 p.m. Dirk now 1/8 FG ... and as I was saying about Vince Carter. Mavs heating up. #Thunder needs to get to the half. Friday's box score Continue reading this story on the...
