Default With Game 2 failure, Thunder can expect a seven-game grind

OKLAHOMA CITY Exactly two years earlier, there was the Dallas debacle.

In Game 2 of a first-round series, Oklahoma City was dealt a one-point home loss by a Mavericks team that might have had less horsepower than any postseason team that season.

On Wednesday, there was Game 2 of the Utah-Thunder series at Chesapeake Energy Arena. It bore a strong resemblance to Game 2 of the 2016 Dallas-Thunder series and the outcome was exactly the same.

In spite of jarring the Jazz with a 19-0, third-quarter run, the Thunder reverted to some of the bad habits that were so common during the regular season.

Oklahoma City attempted too many 3-point shots, missed too many 3-point shots, got only 54 points from its three primary offensive sources and wound up with a 102-95 defeat.

"But I know some of the qualities of the coach I would pick. Somebody that doesn't mind working, a coach that's going to bring a fresh mindset and help us all get better as basketball players as well as men. A coach that has all our best interests at heart."
