Tip-Off for 12/28/12 (featuring The O’Jays): Thunder rally to defeat Mavericks in overtime; Clippers rout Celtics


OKC’s dynamic duo has combined for 117 points in their last two games

The Oklahoma City Thunder got more than they expected from a game Dallas Mavericks squad. The Thunder gave up big first and third quarters to the visitors. OKC was to prevail in overtime 111-105.

It looks like the Los Angeles Clippers are doing their best to put the Pacific Division out of reach as soon as possible. Last night, the Boston Celtics found out these are not the same ol’ Clippers. The hosts crushed the Celtics 106-77.

Thunder 111 – Mavs 105 – Mavs point guard Darren Collison scored three of his 32 points on a fall away jumper to send the game into overtime. Kevin Durant went scoreless in the extra period, but led all scorers with 40 points. Russell Westbrook scored 8 of his 16 points in overtime for OKC.

Clippers 106 – 77 – The Clippers took advantage of 18 turnovers by the Celtics to cruise to an easy win. Boston scored only ten fourth quarter points. Matt Barnes led the Clippers with 21 points and Lamar Odom grabbed 13 rebounds for Los Angeles. Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 16 points.

    seems like the Russian in Brooklyn has assembled a team with a few misfits, and made Avery Johnson pay for it.

    He fired his coach and did not have a replacement lined up! Money man who feels he is god?

    Brooklyn…Dallas Mavs east?

    I don’t see a championship in Deron Williams’ future however. Shades of Kobe Bryant, coach killer

    looking forward to the Nets stewing in Russian xxxx for the duration..years not just this season
