lando led 39-19 after one quarter, 71-42 at halftime and was up by as many as 32 points. Led by Jeff Green’s 25 points, the third-highest game of his career, the Thunder closed to within 87-73 but never got closer.
"The second half is the way we should have played in the first half,” Green said. "If you can repeat the second half of the Utah (game) and second half of this game, we’d win a lot of games.”
Veteran Joe Smith, in his 14th season, said every team inevitably has off nights but effort shouldn’t be an issue.
"When you have a young team, we should have a lot of energy almost every night,” Smith said. "Later in the season, I can see that happening, but it’s too early for that to being going on.”
