This was a game of runs through and through. Most of the game was spent with the Thunder building 10-12 point leads, the Kings fighting back, and the Thunder building leads again. The first and third quarters were both started by Thunder runs. Finally, in the fourth, the Kings decided to go hard, eventually taking a lead. It was looking very winnable until the Kings missed two different dunks (DeMarcus and Rudy respectively), missed free throws, and ran an isolation play that was so Kings that the Kings somehow managed to out-King themselves in a large
season decade filled with stunningly Kings-like plays.
All in all, the Kings actually put the Thunder exactly where they needed them to be, and still came up short. Whatever issue is causing these lapses need to be fixed sooner rather than later. We are too talented a team, with too good a coach to keep losing games in such boneheaded fashion.
