Raptors hand OKC their first home loss

Thunder have had no respect for opponent, and are paying for it.
Toronto, a 34% 3P shooting team on the season, goes 7/14 from three in the first half. They couldn't really be playing much better and we really couldn't be playing much worse.
Haven't seen the team this disinterested in a game all season, pretty much deserve the loss. The guys just slept through this game
Weirdest loss ever. I mean we just got handed our first home loss to a terrible Raptors team. A team whose best player is either Amir Johnson or DeMar DeRozan. How many wide-open shots did we miss tonight? Durant was terrible. 13-0 home record? GONE. Undefeated streak after leading after 3 quarters? GONE. Raptors, 2-12 after trailing after 3 quarters? No problem, overcome a 9 point 4th quarter deficit against arguably the best team in the NBA, on the road, and win.

How the hell does that happen?
Not that bad of a loss. I mean the Raptors arent gonna win the east, but they have been playing well since the trade.

Still shouldnt have lost this one but, this one screamed trap game. I said it last night right after the win that this would likely be a careless loss. It happened...enjoy the holidays and go whoop some ass in NY on national tv!
Merry Christmas, Toronto! Gift-wrapped 'em a win. The cheerleaders probably would've put up a better fight tonight, our team just didn't care to play from the start and you could see it in their body language/energy levels. I don't see it is as a bad execution or shooting night, the team just went into sleepwalk mode after the tip-off. If not for the refs helping us get to the line, it would have been over sooner. Not a big deal, cant win them all.
When can we play an easy team like the Spurs again?
