“Thursday’s loss in Oakland, with Kevin Durant dropping 39 on his old team, was certainly humbling. But the bottom line is that the Thunder earned a split in a tough, road back-to-back against the Clippers and Warriors.

Top five top five top five. I don’t even like Drake that much but that’s just so much fun to say! If you want a detailed look at what everyone around the NBA is saying, Cole Hixon put together a nice little piece for you.
