Though he won a piece of NBA coach of the year honors, as awarded by his peers as recently as a month ago, Billy Donovan will nonetheless not be returning to coach the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After two days off, and now against the backdrop of a still more organized and action-oriented push for social justice, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the rest of the NBA have chosen to resume the playoffs Saturday inside the Disney bubble in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
NBA.com reported early Thursday afternoon that players have decided Thursday that they want to continue the season, coming to that consensus one day after three postseason games were postponed in a protest of racial injustice.
It must have been the spring of 1980 and it must have been Bob Vernon, social studies teacher extraordinaire, the man in charge of Westminster Middle School and all these years later the man in charge of the entire school.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — All three NBA playoff games scheduled for Wednesday have been postponed, with players around the league choosing to boycott in their strongest statement yet against racial injustice.
A few minutes after the Milwaukee Bucks chose not to come out of their locker room for their Game 5 appointment with the Orlando Magic, it was also reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania that Oklahoma City and Houston would not be playing their own Game 5 either.
NORMAN — Tuesday, during the Thunder’s media availability from inside the Disney bubble, a Houston reporter asked both Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Billy Donovan if they’d heard what James Harden had said after Game 2, that Houston sensed Oklahoma City had become tired “and we just kept pressing the gas on them.”
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Dennis Schroder scored a career playoff-high 30 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied to beat the Houston Rockets 117-114 on Monday and even the first-round Western Conference playoff series at two wins apiece.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Dennis Schroder scored 29 points, Chris Paul added 26 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder dominated in overtime to beat the Houston Rockets 119-107 on Saturday night and cut their deficit in the first-round series to 2-1.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — James Harden had 21 points and nine assists and the Houston Rockets made 19 of an NBA-record 56 3-point attempts to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-98 on Thursday for a 2-0 lead in the first-round Western Conference series.
Via a 111-98 defeat, the Oklahoma City Thunder fell behind 2-0 in their first round NBA playoff series against the Houston Rockets Thursday afternoon in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Chris Paul had 21 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 105-86 victory over the poor-shooting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder announced the schedule for its eight seeding games to restart the 2019-20 season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida today.
BETHANY — Whether it was the fact the two teams played a year ago with a state berth on the line, or the fact Hilldale had a year’s exposure to playing in the tournament, the Lady Hornets came out loose in Thursday’s Class 4A quarterfinal game at Southern Nazarene University’s Sawyer Center.
Chris Paul, Thunder point guard and all-around good guy, spoke to local media Wednesday afternoon via teleconference and, because he’s thoughtful, said many interesting things.

OKLAHOMA CITY — The faces were familiar. The memories shared were special. Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams’ thoughts of Billy Donovan are still meaningful to him three years after leaving Oklahoma City following the tragic loss of his wife Ingrid.
OKLAHOMA CITY — In a game they scored 115 points, the Thunder scored just 21 in the fourth quarter, repeating some of the failures that had led to four late losses five games into the season.

Those fawning over Russell Westbrook’s time in Oklahoma City, apoplectic that cheering for him now means rooting for a different uniform and it’s all unimaginably horrible are wrong.
