Thunder blow 19-point lead
It has been a common theme for the Thunder to blow double-digit leads this season, and it happened again Monday night. Oklahoma City (7-9) blew a 19-point lead. It is the sixth time this season the Thunder have had a double-digit lead and some point in the game and lose.
Westbrook has a triple double
Another day, another Russell Westbrook triple double. Westbrook had 22 points, 16 rebounds and 12 assists for his fifth triple double of the season. The Thunder are 4-1 in those contests.
Patterson’s slump continues
Patrick Patterson has had a rough start for the Thunder. He hasn’t consistently hit his 3-point shot, and it has affected his performances. His poor play continued on Monday, as he played 13 minutes and missed his one hot and had four fouls. For the Thunder’s bench to pick up slack, Patterson’s contributions are vital.
