One thing I took away listening to Kanter this morning: No doubt about it, he wants to re-sign with the Thunder this summer.

Aaron Falk

Quick post from OKC's shootaround: the UnderKanter's heel turn & why he's thriving with the Thunder. sltrib.com/blogs/jazznote…

Royce Young

Enes Kanter on Thunder versus Jazz: "I think the difference is I like playing basketball there. I think that's the most important thing."

Jeff Caplan

Key injuries in West: Rockets, Blazers, Clippers, Thunder & quite possibly Mavericks. That's a bummer.

Royce Young

Pelicans won tonight, Suns lost. Thunder up three games on New Orleans, 3.5 on Phoenix (four in the loss column).

Kerry Eggers

Thunder, KISS now tied on spectacular 1-hand grabs. Thyron Lewis gives KISS 1st and goal at 3

That's 5 penalties in first 7 minutes for Thunder. Working some kinks out here in the opener

Sensational 1-handed catch by Thunder's Duane Brooks. Check the man for stick-um

Kerry Eggers

Aided by 3 Thunder penalties, KISS score 1st, lead 6-0. Conversion wide left

Kerry Eggers

Fisticuffs after Thunder's Frank Trotter lays out somebody with a cheap shot and draws unnecessary roughness flag

Kerry Eggers

Kerry Eggers

Not sure if I heard it right, but I think the PA guy said if Thunder win, every fan gets free Jumbo Jack at Jack in the Box. #thatsincentive

Kerry Eggers

Dazzled by the hoopla. Bring on the game! RT @BobbyVanD22: @Kerry Eggers you seem thrilled to be covering the thunder

Kerry Eggers

At Moda Center for Thunder's opener vs. LA KISS. Thunder owner Terry Emmert tells me he believes it's sellout tonight. If so, #impressive

Mitch Lawrence

Hard to believe for 3 consecutive seasons, injury to one of the Thunder's Big 3 will derail championship hopes (this yr it's KD & Ibaka).

Michael Lee

Before Kevin Durant was forced to have 3rd surgery, I wrote that #thunder should shut him down & focus on next season wapo.st/1OfxJ1o

Royce Young

I recall many wondering what in the world the Thunder were doing with Westbrook last season. Seems like that worked out to me.

Royce Young

Also: This decision was made in collaboration with three of the top foot/ankle specialists in the world. This wasn't just a Thunder thing.

Randy Renner

The recovery process for the latest KD news begins now. #Thunder http://t.co/MbrG0TvyN4

Royce Young

Many are going to spin this however they want, but by going with the bone graft, the Thunder are taking a proactive long-term approach.

Jimmy Spencer

The Thunder's lost season isn't officially lost, but it's mostly missing and probably for good.

Trey Kerby

Thunder have now said both Westbrook and Durant had lower body injuries that were healing perfectly before they needed another surgery.
