Modified: January 7, 2013 at 5:14 pm • Published: January 7, 2013 The Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry, John Rohde and Anthony Slater provided live coverage of Oklahoma City's game Monday night against the Washington Wizards. close Your browser does not support iframes. @DarnellMayberry 5:44 p.m. Trajan Langdon is standing in the press room holding court, officially becoming my most random sighting this season. @DarnellMayberry 5:46 p.m. Wizards probably could use the old Alaskan Assassin tonight. @DarnellMayberry 6:07 p.m. Kevin Durant just got an ovation like a hometown hero as he was introduced. Emphasis on hero. @RohdeOK 6:09 p.m. Timberwolves to be without Kevin Love for Wed. game vs. #Thunder.. es.pn/ZzdEM4 @anthonyVslater 6:10 p.m. The Thunder is second in the league in scoring (105.6 ppg). The Wizards are last (88.9 ppg). Mismatch in Washington tips soon. @DarnellMayberry 6:10 p.m. Meanwhile, you can count how many fans clapped for each Wizards player as he was introduced...Sad scene here in our nation's capital. @DarnellMayberry 6:13 p.m. Wizards fans, most of them anyway, are standing up until Washington scores its first bucket. Sound familiar? @RohdeOK 6:16 p.m. Howard and Gasol out indefinitely. Could miss Friday home game vs. #Thunder. es.pn/UCn3Bj @DarnellMayberry 6:21 p.m. Westbrook must be feeling good tonight. He's getting 'em up. @MrMichaelLee 6:21 p.m. The Chipotle burrito dash just isn't the same without Andray Blatche #wizards @DarnellMayberry 6:22 p.m. RT @NancyLieberman @DarnellMayberry u do great work covering @okcthunder (Thanks a lot. I really appreciate that.) @anthonyVslater 6:22 p.m. Kenny Stills releases statement explaining his decision to leave OU for the NFL: bit.ly/RCSFo5 @DarnellMayberry 6:25 p.m. I think it's time we start giving Russell Westbrook some credit for making Serge Ibaka a better player. @MrMichaelLee 6:26 p.m. Scott Brooks spoke about character & heart to explain how OKC recovered from 3-29 start in 08-09, then said, "Kevin Durant helps also." @DarnellMayberry 6:27 p.m. Thunder doesn't seem interested in playing defense tonight. Wizards have shooters are open all over the floor. Interior D hasn't been bad. @MrMichaelLee 6:30 p.m. Trevor Ariza back on court for 1st time since straining left calf on Dec. 4. #wizards announcer mention him, crowd snoozed. @DarnellMayberry 6:32 p.m. See, what the Thunder is doing right now is giving the Wizards confidence. Somebody better shut that off. @DarnellMayberry 6:33 p.m. After one, the Wizards lead the Thunder 30-20. Washington center Emeka Okafor has more points (eight) than Durant & Westbrook combined! @MrMichaelLee 6:33 p.m. #wizards up 10 on OKC after 1stQ. Martell Webster & Garrett Temple have outscored Durant & Westbrook. Just what everybody expected, right? @anthonyVslater 6:34 p.m. The Wizards, averaging a league-low 88 points per game, are up 30-20 on OKC after the 1st qtr. Currently on 15-2 run. Thunder look lethargic @MrMichaelLee 6:35 p.m. So nice of Trevor Ariza to come back & deck the fourth row behind the basket with a halfcourt heave in his return #wizards @RohdeOK 6:35 p.m. #Thunder coach Scott Brooks hates giving up 30-point quarters. Imagine how much he hates giving up 30 to a 4-28 team. @anthonyVslater 6:35 p.m. This matches the Wizards largest lead after a quarter this season. Led the Nets 30-20 after one on Friday. @MrMichaelLee 6:39 p.m. Kevin Durant just brought the home fans - he's from DC after all - back on his side with that lefty jam #wizards @MrMichaelLee 6:42 p.m. Trevor Ariza recovers, some, from getting juked by Kevin Durant with that steal & breakaway jam #wizards @okcthunder 6:44 p.m. 9:43 left in Q2. #Thunder trails @WashWizards 33-30. Thunder went on 13-2 run. KD 9 pts, Thabo 8. Thunder.nba.com @MrMichaelLee 6:46 p.m. Drum roll please. Fireworks through rafters. Jan Vesely has finally made it. He has more pts (62) than fouls (58) this season. #wizards @MrMichaelLee 6:51 p.m. KD was like, 'Enough of this. Time to play." OKC goes from down 10 to up 3 in 8 mins #wizards @RohdeOK 6:51 p.m. I'm waiting to see what happens when @sergeibaka9 asks a ref for the basketball so he can kiss it, and the ref refuses. #joeycrawford @anthonyVslater 6:52 p.m. And here's Tony Jefferson's statement, explaining his decision to leave OU for the NFL: bit.ly/RCSFo5 @MrMichaelLee 6:53 p.m. Vesely, Singleton & Mack RT @EdgeofSports As bad as Vesely has been, that whole 2011 draft was a near total horror show of awfulness. @DarnellMayberry 6:56 p.m. Kevin Durant before the game: "We can lose to any team in the league, so we got to be prepared and not take these guys lightly." @DarnellMayberry 6:59 p.m. Serge Ibaka says don't give me two shots at it. @anthonyVslater 7:00 p.m. Thunder up 53-51 on the Wizards at halftime. Serge Ibaka and KD combine for 30, everyone else with 23. @DarnellMayberry 7:01 p.m. At halftime, the Thunder leads the Wizards 53-51. Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka lead all scorers with 15 apiece. @RohdeOK 7:05 p.m. When going for last shot in quarter, #Thunder frequently puts four guys outside the arc, with Serge in the corner. @okcthunder 7:06 p.m. 15 points apiece for KD & Serge. #Thunder leads @WashWizards at halftime 53-51. @FSOklahoma @DarnellMayberry 7:23 p.m. I can't think of a time Russell Westbrook has been dunked on. Martell Webster just did it on a fast break when Westbrook challenged. @RohdeOK 7:23 p.m. #Thunder is top 3-point shooting team in NBA (.401). Wiz are No. 29 (.317). But OKC is getting outshot 50.0% to 26.7% tonight. @MrMichaelLee 7:25 p.m. Ibaka Flocka Flame @DarnellMayberry 7:31 p.m. Kendrick Perkins has a game-high nine rebounds with 3:47 left in the third quarter. It's the 4th straight game he's had at least 7. @DarnellMayberry 7:33 p.m. Wizards take the lead again. It's 72-70 Washington with 3:08 remaining in the third. @MrMichaelLee 7:33 p.m. Martell Webster having himself a ballgame, but I can't get over KD shooting an airball 3 & Russell barely hitting rim on next trip #wizards @DarnellMayberry 7:35 p.m. Uh, DeAndre Liggins is in the game. @DarnellMayberry 7:37 p.m. Emeka Okafor just stuffed Durant at the rim...and Liggins took a charge at the other end. @MrMichaelLee 7:38 p.m. Emeka Okafor just snuffed out KD on that attempted dunk. Sent ball & KD in the opposite direction. What a bizarre game #wizards @DarnellMayberry 7:39 p.m. Hey. Liggins is providing good minutes. Already has grabbed two rebounds, taken a charge and cut hard to the basket to earn to foul shots. @DarnellMayberry 7:40 p.m. Liggins just contested a runner by Trevor Ariza before grabbing the rebound on the miss. @DarnellMayberry 7:41 p.m. If the Thunder loses this game... @MrMichaelLee 7:41 p.m. Bradley Beal just got fouled on a desperation 3 & converted his 1st career 4-pt play. #wizards up 76-73 on OKC. You saw this coming, right? @DarnellMayberry 7:41 p.m. Through three quarters in Washington, the Wizards lead the Thunder 76-73. @okcthunder 7:46 p.m. Q4 starts with #Thunder trailing @WashWizards 76-73. Serge Ibaka 21 pts, 8 rebs. @RohdeOK 7:47 p.m. #Thunder was league-best 12-2 last season when lost to league-worst 1-12 Wiz. Same positions tonight at 26-7 and 4-28. Same result? @DarnellMayberry 7:48 p.m. Thunder 0-for-3 with a shot clock violation to start the fourth quarter. Wizards lead growing. @anthonyVslater 7:49 p.m. The 4-28 Wizards are up 79-73 on the Thunder in the fourth quarter. One positive for OKC? No one is watching. @DarnellMayberry 7:57 p.m. Y'all think I should ask Westbrook if it's OK to go bananas if they lose? Lol. @MrMichaelLee 7:58 p.m. Jan Vesely with 10 pts & 7 rebs. Just picked up his 1st foul. What's going on in here? #wizards @DarnellMayberry 7:59 p.m. The good news for the Thunder is the trips to the foul line are starting to mount. That's now the blueprint for winning this ballgame. @RohdeOK 7:59 p.m. Wizards dead last in scoring at 88.9 per game, and already has 88 with 6 1/2 minutes left vs. OKC. Pitiful defense by #Thunder. @DarnellMayberry 8:01 p.m. The bad news for the Thunder is turnovers and poor defensive rebounding are a huge issue in this final period. @DarnellMayberry 8:03 p.m. Wizards lead the Thunder 90-83 with 5:34 left to play. @MrMichaelLee 8:06 p.m. Kevin Durant has shot 2 airballs. Russell Westbrook just missed a point blank layup. #wizards @RohdeOK 8:07 p.m. #Thunder outscored 27-12 on 3-pointers. @DarnellMayberry 8:08 p.m. Wizards 94, Thunder 90 with 3:20 left to play. @RohdeOK 8:10 p.m. Washington lost 99-71 at Miami last night. #Thunder arrived in D.C. seven hours before Wiz did. @RohdeOK 8:13 p.m. Washington went scoreless for final 7:07 last night and was outscored 21-0 by Heat. OKC needs another Wiz dryspell in final 2:58. @MrMichaelLee 8:15 p.m. Bradley Beal just shook Kendrick Perkins to the floor. He will mean-mugging for a long time after that #wizards @DarnellMayberry 8:16 p.m. If you're not watching the Thunder-Wizards right now, you need to change the channel. Wizards 99, Thunder 94 with 1:43 remaining @MrMichaelLee 8:16 p.m. Let that tongue wag, Martell Webster. You earned it. #wizards up 99-94 w/1:43 remaining. Now, we're seen teams go on 11-0 runs in less time @MrMichaelLee 8:17 p.m. I don't know if I've ever seen 2 4-point plays in the same game. #wizards always providing oddities this season @RohdeOK 8:18 p.m. Another season-high by another Thunder opponent (Martell Webster with 22). @RohdeOK 8:19 p.m. Welcome home, KD. @okcthunder 8:20 p.m. #Thunder@Wizards. KD pops a 3-pointer. Ties game at 99. 12 seconds left. @DarnellMayberry 8:20 p.m. Kevin Durant drills a game-tying 3-pointer with 36.5 seconds left to make it 99-99. Washington ball with 12.2 seconds left. #LeaguePassAlert @DarnellMayberry 8:21 p.m. To everybody filling my timeline with national championship this and that, I'm sure that 21-0 game is riveting. #sarcasm Change the channel! @DarnellMayberry 8:23 p.m. That's what kills me. People will watch football just because it's football. But, hey, I'm a basketball junkie. @MrMichaelLee 8:24 p.m. Now you see why OKC was so high on Bradley Beal. That right there. #wizards @DarnellMayberry 8:24 p.m. Bradley Beal comes through for the Wizards with a clutch 16-footer with 0.3 seconds left. Wizards lead 101-99. Thunder ball. @RohdeOK 8:24 p.m. Season-high 11 rebounds. Have other people who can score. RT @jay4217 Why is Perk in the game....don't we need more offense? @DarnellMayberry 8:26 p.m. Westbrook misses a desperation heave. Final score: Wizards 101, Thunder 99. The NBA's worst team falls to the league's worst. @okcthunder 8:26 p.m. #Thunder falls short in DC, losing to @Wizards 101-99. Headed home to play @MNTimberwolves Wednesday night. thunder.nba.com @anthonyVslater 8:26 p.m. The 5-28 Washington Wizards just joined the Memphis Grizzlies as the only NBA team to beat the Thunder and Heat this year. Crazy. @DarnellMayberry 8:27 p.m. Westbrook misses a desperation heave. Final score: Wizards 101, Thunder 99. The NBA's best team falls to the league's worst. @anthonyVslater 8:27 p.m. The 5-28 Washington Wizards just joined the Memphis Grizzlies as the only NBA teams to beat the Thunder and Heat this year. Crazy. @RohdeOK 8:29 p.m. Perk actually helped on Thabo. RT @Tulsasooner13 @jay4217 but his defense stinks and the game winner was on him @MrMichaelLee 8:34 p.m. #wizards have 5 wins this season, with 2 coming over the teams that appeared in the NBA Finals. Makes perfect sense. @MrMichaelLee 8:39 p.m. #wizards last defeated both NBA Finalists in 2006-07 (MIA & DAL). 1st win this season without Nene @RohdeOK 8:46 p.m. And no John Wall for Wiz. Quick poll: Worst loss in Thunder history? @okcthunder 8:47 p.m. #brightspot Serge Ibaka had 11 rebounds and career high 26 points tonight. Kendrick Perkins also grabbed 11 rebounds.
