Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook told reporters Sunday he almost let the bears out of the bag.
"It's on me man," he said when asked about the Thunder's lethargic start to the third quarter of Saturday night's 100-86 win. "I've got to do a better job."
That third quarter when Memphis outscored OKC 31-13 is the only wart on an otherwise smooth performance. The Thunder dominated the first half, blocking eight shots which helped lead to 21 Oklahoma City points in transition.
