In the Thunder’s 117-106 loss to Portland — its fourth loss in its last six games — its defense was exposed yet again in an all-too-familiar third quarter setback.

The Blazers torched the Thunder’s defense in third quarter for 34 points on 15-of-24 shooting, 4-of-7 from 3-point range. With no Andre Roberson in the starting lineup for the fifth consecutive game, the Thunder’s defense has given up 114 or more points in three straight games.

Tonight the Thunder take on the Minnesota Timberwolves with tipoff at 7PM in this rebuilding season.
