The OKC Thunder affiliate the OKC Blue had a week for the books, even though they only went 1-1.

The OKC Blue have gone 4-1 in the last two weeks. This is despite Luguentz Dort and others being called up to the OKC Thunder thanks to their injury issues. The Blue went 1-1 in the last week despite some amazing performances.

The first game of the week was against the Austin Spurs, a team that took advantage of the Blue injury issues earlier in the season. This time the Blue proved too strong for the fourth place Spurs 125-116.

This was the night that Abdul Gaddy broke the all-time assist record for the OKC Thunder. It was his second straight 20 point, double-double with 23 points and ten assists. Kevin Hervey also had a double-double with 14 points and ten rebounds.


DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell had a huge 33 point effort to go along with eight rebounds. Devon Hall had 23 points, five rebounds and four assists in another solid game.
