Nick Collison was a limited participant in Thunder practice today. Also a chance he makes his preseason debut tomorrow night.

Proof NBA preseason means little: Spurs, Clippers, Thunder (even w/o Durant), all have losing records. Remember, it’s purely practice.

Ibaka is playing and starting, and no KPerkins and Collison for Thunder tonight

My Western Conference playoff teams: 1) Warriors, 2) Spurs, 3) Clippers, 4) Thunder, 5) Dallas, 6) Portland, 7) Portland, 8) Houston.

Daniel Moldovan

Another productive outing for @mjjenk as the @Oklahoma City Thunder go down to the Raptors. 8 points and 3 boards in 7 min.

Mike Tokito

Players exchanged gifts after anthems. Wouldn't it be cool if #Blazers and Thunder did that before season opener?

Mike Ganter

The same rim that rejected Amir just did the same to Westbrook, although the Thunder miss was a little more, um, embarrassing.

Paul Jones

pretty good 2nd qtr by #Raptors as they outscore OKC 37-17. Thunder shooting under 40% #rtz

Mike Ganter

Raps have a 60-46 lead at the half. Outscored Thunder 37-17 in the second quarter.

Josh Lewenberg

Break 'em up RT @Mike Ganter @[me] Thunder bench is so depleted the Raps actually look like the '96 Bulls.

Josh Lewenberg

Thunder broadcast crew (who are actually quite good, for the record) making the Raptors sound like the '96 Bulls

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors can scrap those "We The North" ads and just use this strangely complimentary Thunder broadcast to market their team

Mike Ganter

Raps down 29-23 after a quarter. JV has nine. Morrow has seven for the Thunder.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors trail 29-23 after 1Q. Thunder shooting 50% w/ an 18-6 advantage in the paint, 10-0 on the break. JV: 9 pts, 2 reb & a blk in 10mins

Mike Ganter

Sebastian Telfair, - remember him - is in the game for the Thunder.

Mike Ganter

Raps starters against a Durant-less Thunder are down 14-8 after 6:20.

Anthony Slater

Some great cross-matchups to start this Thunder-Raptors game: -Westbrook v Lowry -Ibaka v Amir Johnson -Adams v Valanciunas

Anthony Slater

Rare pregame trifecta tonight for Thunder-Raptors: Oh Canada, National Anthem and a pregame prayer.
