Telling stats: Assists: 9-4, Thunder. Paint points: 20-6, Thunder. Fast break points: 2-0, Thunder. Score: 34-29, Thunder.

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Thunder 34, Blazers 29. Aldridge has 15. Lance Thomas off the bench with 10 for OKC. Not a good qtr on D for the Blazers.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st: OKC leads #Blazers 34-29. LA has 15 pts, Matthews has 7 pts. Westbrook has 11, Thomas has 10 for Thunder.

Kerry Eggers

Thunder take 34-29 lead after 1Q as @LaMarcus Aldridge bombs in 15 to pace #Blazers. Wesbrooke (11) and Roberson (10) lead OKC

Darnell Mayberry

Who had the Thunder scoring 34 first-quarter points tonight?

Anthony Slater

Lance Thomas has 10 points. On 5/5 FG. In the first quarter. Seriously. Not joking. Not for the OKC Blue. For the Thunder.

Darnell Mayberry

Now running plays for (sixth man) Lance Thomas: the Oklahoma City Thunder...and it's working!

Kevin Pelton

The leader in 2013-14 scoring on the court for the Thunder right now is Nick Collison at 4.2 ppg.

Kerry Eggers

Thunder took five minutes to run up 18 points. Not the defensive start Terry Stotts was looking for

Rob Mahoney

Can't wait for the ridiculous columns in a few weeks explaining the competent Thunder as Westbrook "maturing"/something equally patronizing.

Royce Young

Lance Thomas being the Thunder's first player off the bench tells you everything you need to know about the current state of affairs.

Kevin Pelton

Lance Thomas is the first Thunder player off the bench because that's where we are now.

Kevin Pelton

Thunder open the game with Russell Westbrook in the post. Lillard holds his own there but that's a tough matchup.

Erik Gundersen

Interesting call to start for the Thunder. Westbrook in the post on Lillard.

Earl K. Sneed

Should be interesting to see how the Thunder looks without K.D. Russ has the green light, for real.

Ben Golliver

Thunder at Blazers, Moda Center http://t.co/gmS1XPIUNz

Kerry Eggers

Thunder have picked up ex-Blazer Sebastian Telfair, who is still only 29. Played in China last year. He'll back up Russell Westbrook tonight

John Rohde

For #Thunder, end to the season will be far more enjoyable than the beginning. #NBArank bit.ly/1rBybZg @FranchiseOK @steelyonsports

Ben Bolch

Thunder could be more like a barely audible crackle against Clippers with Durant (foot), Morrow (MCL), McGary (foot) and Jerrett (ankle) out

Anthony Slater

Depleted Thunder 9-point underdogs in Portland tonight.

Royce Young

An interesting point from @David Thorpe: The Thunder may miss Durant defensively as much as they will offensively: es.pn/1DwfQmM

Erik Gundersen

Blazers prepare to begin the season against a short-handed Thunder squad columbian.com/news/2014/oct/…

Alex Kennedy

There are 12 NBA games tomorrow. Bulls-Knicks and Thunder-Blazers on ESPN, the others on League Pass (available for everyone in first week).

Sean Highkin

Lots of good games on tomorrow. Bulls-Knicks, Bucks-Hornets, Heat-Wizards, Hawks-Raptors, Blazers-Thunder

Devin Kharpertian

BTW, that team that averaged 6.4 blocks? The Pelicans. Only one other team (Thunder, 6.1) averaged more than six per game.

Dwain Price

Parsons with the thunder slam.

Joe Freeman

The #Blazers say Meyers Leonard will not play opening night vs. the Thunder because of an upper respiratory illness.

Sean Meagher

Team announces Meyers Leonard (upper respiratory illness) is out for Wednesday's season-opener vs. Thunder.

Chris Sheridan

The #Thunder are already banged up. Should they trade for a hired gun like Greg Monroe? @Eisenberg43 investigates. wp.me/p1Ogzi-lBF

The Thunder's complete bench for the first two games: Nick Collison, Kendrick Perkins, Lance Thomas and Sebastian Telfair. Yikes.

Royce Young

Lamb and Jackson ruled out for Thunder's opening two games, plus Scott Brooks names his starting five: es.pn/1wzSifE

Anthony Slater

Only four players on the Thunder bench tomorrow: Kendrick Perkins, Nick Collison, Lance Thomas and Sebastian Telfair (only guard)

Anthony Slater

Thunder not revealing timetable on Reggie Jackson (ankle) or Jeremy Lamb (back) injuries. Brooks: "They'll be reevaluated when we get back."

Erik Gundersen

Via @Anthony Slater add Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb to the Thunder players not playing against Portland.
