With Steven Adams still hors de combat, Billy Donovan went with four of Monday’s starting five, inserting Enes Kanter in the center position. This didn’t last long; Kanter rolled up the points easily enough, but so did FC Barcelona, and Kanter was replaced by Ersan Ilyasova. (Interchangeable Turks! Only in Oklahoma City.) Amusingly, the power at the Palau Sant Jordi went off during halftime, but it didn’t delay the game much. This wasn’t the scoring fest that took place on Monday in Madrid, by any means; the Thunder squeaked by, 92-89, on the strength of a 5-0 late run. Still, Kanter, left to his own devices, managed to come up with 24 points; Victor Claver led FCB with 25. And that’s it for the Spanish part of the preseason; there will be almost a week to recover from jet lag.
