Thunder Drop Second-Straight, 103-93

Posted: Updated:

After starting the season 5-0, the Oklahoma City Thunder have hit its first rough-patch of the season, dropping two in a row.  The Portland Trailblazers walked into Chesapeake Energy Arena and left Tuesday night with a 103-93 win.

Former Texas Longhorn LaMarcus Aldrigde was a beast, leading all scorers with 30 points.  Four other Blazers reached double-figures, lead by Wesley Matthew's 16 points.

For the Thunder, it was a rare off-night for star Kevin Durant, who shot just 8 of 26 from the field.  He finished with 19 points.  James Harden tried to pick up the slack, scoring a game-high 23 points.  Russell Westbrook added 22 in defeat.

No other OKC player scored more than eight points in the game, as the team shot just 25% from three-point range.

Oklahoma City gets a few days off before taking on Houston in OKC on Friday.  Tip-off is set for 7 PM.
