What’s good everyone? We had another tough win last night. Not gonna even try to act like I called glass on the game winner last night. Just one of those shots you shoot and go from a worried “Oh man” to an excited “Oh, ok!”. It looked terrible leaving my hands, but I’m glad it hit the backboard and went in!

KD and the Thunder won their second straight game on Tuesday night, defeating the Golden State Warriors 119-116.
KD finished the game with 33 points (on 13-27 shooting), 10 rebounds and 7 assists. The go ahead bucket was scored by KD on an elbow bank shot.
Despite getting all sorts of praise for the shot, after the game, KD was quick to point out he didn’t plan to bank the shot. “It looked terrible leaving my hands, but I’m glad it hit the backboard and went in.”
The Thunder now head to Sacramento to take on the Kings on Thursday night.

Today in New York City, KD was part of the launch for Nike’s new NIKE+ FuelBand product. FuelBand is an innovative wristband that tracks movement throughout the day, designed to motivate and inspire users to be more active.
The ergonomic NIKE+ FuelBand captures and displays four different metrics: time, calories, steps and NikeFuel – a new metric that will be the ultimate measure of your athletic activity. NikeFuel is a proprietary technology that measures your activity through the movement of your wrist. NikeFuel motivates athletes to do more with a NikeFuel score that makes movement fun, meaningful and comparable, letting you compete with athletes of all levels in most activities. The more you move, the more NikeFuel you earn, whether you’re playing basketball, throwing a Frisbee or going for a run.
Nike worked with some of the world’s top experts in science and sports to engineer NikeFuel algorithms based on oxygen kinetics. Unlike calorie counts â€” which vary based on someone’s gender and body type â€” NikeFuel is a normalized score that awards all participants equal scoring for the same activity regardless of their physical makeup. A user can also choose to also receive a calorie count to understand how many calories are burned versus how much NikeFuel is earned.
As part of the launch for the product, KD was featured in the NIKE+ FuelBand “Counts” spot and on hand in New York for the launch event with Nike athletes Carmelita Jeter and Lance Armstrong. KD said he’ll wear the FuelBand while practicing — and possibly during NBA games.
“I love it. I’m a competitive person. So being able to match my scores up with all my friends and fellow athletes from around the world, that’s going to be fun.”
