Before Sunday's game, guard Thabo Sefolosha recorded double-doubles in two of the Thunder's past three games. He scored 13 points with 10 rebounds at Indiana and had 13 points and 11 rebounds against Minnesota. Sefolosha has now notched six double-doubles as a member of the Thunder.
â€œI think it's just being at the right spot at the right time,â€ Sefolosha said. â€œMy teammates are finding me when I'm open and when I'm cutting to the lane. And the rebounds, it's all about position and boxing out to try to help the team out by getting those rebounds, especially on the defensive end. Often, we are smaller than the rest of the teams so everybody has to do the work to help our big guys out.â€
Nenad Krstic missed his second consecutive game Sunday night because of back spasms. Serge Ibaka received his ninth career start in place of Krstic. â€¦The Thunder franchise has lost 11 straight games at Houston after Sunday's game.
