In the final six minutes, OKC went 1-of-10 from the field. Overall, the Thunder shot 37 percent from the field, its worst clip since a blowout loss in Minnesota on the second night of the season.
“Our defense kept us in the game, and that was our silver lining,” Jackson said. “We can be happy with our performance on the defensive end. We have 82 games, and sometimes shots just don't fall.”
The shocking result was OKC's first home loss this season in which it entered as the favorite. And one night after likely its best win of the year, the Thunder undoubtedly suffered its worst loss.
Blame it on the fourth quarter play.
“It doesn't happen to us often where we can get up on a team by 11 and lose the lead,” Brooks said. “Especially on our home floor, so we'll get better from it and move on to the next game.”
