The OKC Thunder held off New York last night at the Ford Center. NewsOK.tv’s Tim Money was there to get reaction from players and coaches. And he taped Mike Baldwin and Darnell Mayberry for some analysis, sponsored by our friends at Jackie Cooper BMW. Mike and Darnell really do a great job. They know their beat cold.
But what cracked me up is the setting of this video. Check out Mike and Darnell reporting from the Nicholson seats as they talk about the big lead the Thunder almost surrendered.
Damon Fontenot was on the scene Friday night as the OKC Thunder thumped Toronto.
Fontenot filed two videos, as we typically do from the Thunder games. We tape the post game press conference and grab The Oklahoman’s reporters for a post game analysis piece. The analysis is sponsored by Jackie Cooper BMW. And we thank them for that.
Went to the Thunder game last night. Celtics came to town. I hate the Celtics. Grew up a Lakers fan, for no reason. I mean, I wish I grew up on the beach, going to games at the Forum. But no, just grew up here watching the Purple and Gold on TV in the days of Magic and Kareem.
So, still a Lakers fan. Still get NBA League Pass to watch their games. Still hate the Celts. The Finals last June were brutal.
So the Doc Rivers-led squad rolled to the Ford Center on Wednesday night and rolled over the Thunder. OKC put up a fight in the first, then laid down as the best team in the Eastern Conference methodically played their game and beat OKC beat 13.
Had great seats for this game. Attending an NBA game in OKC has always been an entertaining experience. Almost like attending a concert there. It’s as much for the atmosphere and seeing everyone as it is for the hoop.
I missed last night’s game as the Thunder won its first game ever.
ESPN ranks all 30 NBA teams each week in Mark Stein’s power poll. With last night’s win, the Thunder climbed to No. 27. My Lakers are now No. 1.
Jackie Cooper BMW sponsors our post-game videos. We tape these at the Ford Center after each home game, and will likely tape some in the studio following the road affairs.
Damon Fontenot shot last night’s game, he then taped Berry Tramel and Darnell Mayberry breaking down the Thunder’s win. Jackie Cooper BMW provided us with a 30 second broadcast commercial. He were able to get a high res file to upload and cut it to a :15. We then included it with the opening animation, with a JC BMW bumper graphic – as you’ll see within the first 30 seconds of this video.
Demand may outweigh supply at the Ford Center. Mike Baldwin talks with me earlier today about the remaining Thunder seats.
