Oklahoma City went to Spain and got itself in a shootout — Real Madrid beat the Durant-less Thunder 142-137 in overtime. It was fun; it was entertaining.[restrict]
And it was filled with guys hitting ridiculous shots. A lot of those came from the Spanish hosts who came from five points down with 4.1 seconds to go to force overtime, where they got the win. Enjoy the highlights of circus shots from the preseason.
And don’t read anything into the loss, Thunder fans. Russell Westbrook only played half the game, Steven Adams sat key portions, and the Thunder were up by 22 at one point. It’s NBA preseason, it has less meaning than a Doraemon cartoon.
