    Russell Westbrook Asked If He's Cool With Joel Embiid: 'F--- No'

    Russell Westbrook had some harsh words for 76ers center Joel Embiid on Saturday while discussing an Embiid foul in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma City's 117-115 victory. After being asked if he's "cool" with the Philadelphia star, Westbrook responded, "f--- no."

    Lakers' Ivica Zubac has patiently waited for moments to shine

    HOUSTON — “Do you have 20 and 10 in you?” As Ivica Zubac wrapped up his court warm-ups and strolled toward the locker room, he smiled as Rob Pelinka asked him a playful question from a courtside seat. “Of course,” he said. Just not that night. That exchange between the Lakers' 21-year-old Croatian 7-footer and the team's general manager was back on Dec. 27, when Zubac was fresh off two double-doubles in his previous three games. He was at the height of a hot streak, and at the height of his confidence as a starter in place of an ill JaVale McGee. It was another 12 games before Zubac finally obliged his words, scoring a career-high 26 points and adding 12 rebounds against Oklahoma City's Steven

    Kuzma scores 32 as Lakers top Thunder in OT without LeBron

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The young Los Angeles Lakers matured on Thursday night. With four-time MVP LeBron James still sidelined by a left groin strain, Kyle Kuzma scored 32 points to help the Lakers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 138-128 in overtime. James missed his 12th straight game, yet against a veteran team loaded with All-Star talent, the Lakers rolled to a 16-6 advantage in the extra period. "That was a really nice, big win for our group," Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "We got contributions from everybody. This is a really hard place to win at. It's a playoff team. For our guys to keep coming in and different people making plays — it's how we have to compete." Ivica Zubac scored a career-high

    An Oklahoma City Thunder Q&A with Thunder Digest

    Saturday the 19th has come, and that means it's time for Sixers-Thunder. To learn more about what has been a weird Oklahoma City team, I chatted with Charles Chaney of ThunderDigest.com. Question #1: Former Sixer Jerami Grant has become a staple of OKC's rotation thanks to the many tools unlocked by his freakish athleticism as well as his improvement from beyond the arc into a capable jump-shooter. How important is Jerami to the Thunder? Color me one of the few who didn't quite get the trade. Ersan Ilyasova was a shooter Oklahoma City needed at the time. Yet the Thunder took this raw, unproven player that was coming from a very bad Philly team. But he's grown and really shows why Sam Presti is

    Oklahoma Department of Securities finds sensitive documents left "vulnerable"

    Oklahoma City, Okla —  The Oklahoma Department of Securities said an unknown number of sensitive documents were left vulnerable online for anyone to access for more than a week. The cyber security company that caught the leak said it could include information about F.B.I. investigations and tens of thousands of Oklahomans Social Security numbers. Upguard is the company that said they caught the breach. On their website you can find a full report, along with redacted examples of that information that was left unsecured.

    Hot-shooting Lakers stun Thunder in overtime road win

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The LeBron-less era of the Lakers has been characterized by unsettling patterns: a lack of ball movement, power outages from deep, poor performances from the free-throw line. It made sense, then, that for the most significant win in the last 12 games, the Lakers (25-21) played totally out of character. A 138-128 overtime victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder (26-18) showcased a veritable offensive arsenal that has largely been lacking without LeBron James. And Lonzo Ball, one of the most critiqued and questioned shooters on the team, helped lead them there amid a hostile road environment at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Ball had five of his 18 points in the extra period (plus an assist),
