The Thunder (13-3) barely squeaked out a victory over the Sacramento Kings (4-12) on the road last night thanks to a last second missed shot by The King’s Isaiah Thomas. The Thunder tried to give away the game in the 4th quarter, but young players such as Lamb and Jackson made some big shots down the stretch to secure the 97-95 victory. This win brings The Thunder’s win streak to 8 and they will look to extend the streak tomorrow in the second night of a back-to-back vs The Portland Trail Blazers (15-3).
