The Three That Knocked OKC Out Of The Playoffs
By Addam Francisco
The Anthony Davis three pointer literally ended up costing the Oklahoma City Thunder the season. The New Orleans Pelicans beat the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier in the season after Anthony Davis hit the game winning three, which was his only three pointer of the season. When he made the three pointer, he even looked surprised. Basically it wasn't supposed to happen, but it did and now the Thunder are out of the playoffs for the first time since the 2008-2009 season, after New Orleans beat San Antonio Wednesday night.
This is disappointing for the Thunder of course, but like I said in my last story they have a lot to look forward to. Next year they will have a clean slate, with everyone being healthy, no worries. Defensive players back, everything. This year roll players learned how to be a key part of this team and Westbrook learned how to be a bigger leader. Westbrook also won the scoring title over James Harden by averaging 28.1 points per game. This apparently doesn’t mean to much to him, after saying that he doesn't care about winning that and that he’s still going to be sitting at home watching other teams play. Thats actually a good sign to me coming from Russ. He doesn't care about the personal stuff, he just wants his team to win a championship. Also, Anthony Morrow said during this off-season he is going to shoot 80,000 shots to better his shooting percentage, which is pretty high any ways (top 5 in the league three point percentage).
The season may have not ended the way we wish it would have, as many fans and I am sure some players are a little upset with San Antonio after they seemed to sleep walk through three-fourths of their final regular season game against New Orleans. We have a great team though, a team that I believe talent wise is the best team we have seen in Oklahoma City.
