Default Slumping Thunder has more home losses than any OKC team since 2010

The Oklahoma City Thunder has 14 home losses this season. It’s the organization’s most home defeats since 2009-10, when that Thunder team lost 14 times at home.

That team was driven by kids: Kevin Durant was 21, Russell Westbrook was 21 and James Harden was 20, and yet that team had the same homecourt success rate as this season’s team with 29-year-old Westbrook, 27-year-old Paul George and 33-year-old Carmelo Anthony.

Through 79 games last season – the first season played after Durant’s flight to Golden State – the Oklahoma City Thunder was 45-34.

While it was a significant, sobering drop from the 60-win finish of 2013 and 59-win record of 2014, the 2016-17 Thunder was an overachieving, respectable squad driven by Westbrook’s quest for triple-double records.

Through 79 games this season – after having augmented the roster with All-Stars George and Anthony – the Thunder is 45-34 and faced with a possibility that five months ago was unthinkable. There is a chance that Oklahoma City won’t be involved in the NBA playoffs.
