Perkins, who was traded to Oklahoma City in 2011 in a deal that netted Boston Jeff Green, also wouldn't rule out a return to the team that drafted him out of high school in 2003. "If the opportunity presented itself, I would," Perkins said. "But you never know. It's not on me. I have to be wanted, to come back." CSNNE.com

Jeff Green broke up the media scrum before the game to give his former coach, Scott Brooks, a hug. “Been a long time since I’ve seen you,” Green told Brooks. “How you been?” “Been good,” Brooks told him. “Shooting a lot of threes, aren’t you?” “Yeah,” Green shot back. “Don’t leave me open. It’s going to continue to go up.” Boston Globe

But the clock is running out. Anthony Morrow returned on Tuesday and will soon get more minutes. Andre Roberson and Perry Jones are days away. Kevin Durant is weeks away. So the Lance Thomas era is soon to come to an end. And he’s making sure to get up shots while he still can. Thomas has been mostly useful these past few weeks, chipping in with his defensive hustle and his around-the-rim energy. But on Tuesday, he was bad. Right from the tip, Thomas started firing up some ill-advised looks, tossing up far too many outside jumpers. At the end of the first quarter, he was 0-of-6 shooting with two turnovers. By the end of the night, he was 2-of-10. It’s already the fourth game this season he’s had double-digit shot attempts. Pretty soon, all those (and more) will be going to the MVP. Oklahoman

No amount of applause, no trophy or title could ever eclipse a father’s love for his baby girl. From the moment they met, Serge Ibaka’s heart grew whole. Ibaka said, “It’s a different love. Just the best love ever.” The Thunder star was only 17 when he became a father. It’s not unusual in Congo, where love blossoms early and teen pregnancy is rampant. KFOR

Ronnie Ibaka lives in Congo with her mom, but Serge is very much a part of her life. He visits frequently and supports his family financially. Ibaka told us, “I give her the best, everything because everything I do right now is for her.” KFOR

Travis appreciates that Reggie learns from disappointing moments. He likes that he lets others provide the praise when he's doing well. He just knows how hard he works and wants him to stay positive. “[Travis] has always been there for me,” Jackson said. “Somebody I can always come back to. He'll let me know things. Life's not always perfect, it's not always gonna go the way I scripted it. He's someone, when I get kind of down and gloomy, someone who always picks my spirits up and lets me know that, I guess he's saying to me I was destined to be great so just understand that and I gotta kind of sometimes be easier on myself and let things go. That's probably something I've dealt with my whole life, just being hard. Whether it was in the classroom, no matter what I was doing in life, I'm just constantly beating myself up. So I've just been trying to get better with myself over my career.” CBSSports.com

“I just want to be perfect in everything I do,” Jackson said. “Growing up, as a kid, I always woke up early. I guess the saying ‘the early bird gets the worm' is something that stuck with me. I worked super hard, always tried to be the first guy in, the last one out, that mentality. I want to be the best to ever play. That's just how I approach it.” CBSSports.com
