Monty on two players exiting game with injury after already missing five others: "I've never been a part of anything like this in my career"

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty Williams on James Southerland debut: "I like the fact that he stepped out there (on the court) and acted like he belonged."

Jason Calmes

Recap done. Thanks for watching, everyone. -@palochak bit.ly/1jzmcul

Jim Eichenhofer

Darius Miller gets his career high in scoring by sinking a late 3. Finishes with 18 points. OKC wins 116-94

Jason Calmes

Rivers is getting much better splitting defenders. Looks really good tonight

Jason Calmes

Solid debut for Southerland, though in garbage time. Has hit a few jumpers now and has a few rebounds and a block

John Reid

James Southerland on roll down the stretch - 4-of-6 shooting for 10 points. s.nola.com/kao5VdG

Jim Eichenhofer

OK, James Southerland. He's scored 10 points and taken six shots in his first eight minutes as a Pelican

John Reid

Just signed James Southerland has made his first two shots, including a 3-pointer. s.nola.com/IKVvC2k

Jim Eichenhofer

James Southerland making a nice impact by draining two jumpers, including a three-pointer, for 5 points. His first official NBA points

Jason Calmes

Southerland knocks down another jumper.

Jim Eichenhofer

Keep in mind, due to injuries, Pelicans needed an exception from NBA to carry 16 players on roster. The normal maximum is 15

Jason Calmes

Southerland cheated too far on that butler 3

Jim Eichenhofer

How this season has gone: New Orleans averages 99.7 points per game as a team, but is missing 103.6 points from injured guys #advancedstats

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans are now without all of their seven leading scorers in the '13-14 season. That group averages a combined 103.6 points per game

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans out for rest of game in Oklahoma City due to right knee bone bruise: on.nba.com/1iEWbro

John Reid

This one all but decided - Pelicans trailing 87-62 at end of third quarter. Tyreke Evans (bone bruise right... s.nola.com/OXMNRTF

Jason Calmes

87-62 after 3. Will we get a look at James Southerland in the 4th?

John Reid

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans right knee bone bruise will not return. s.nola.com/mriCvzl

Jason Calmes

Tyreke has a bone bruise and will not return.

Jim Eichenhofer

Thunder make contact with baseline photogs 2 plays in a row: Westbrook missed reverse dunk and Ibaka failed oop attempt. Heads up down there

Jim Eichenhofer

Austin Rivers may have to play rest of game. Other point guard, Brian Roberts, is now out. Tyreke Evans just went to locker room w/injury

Jason Calmes

Tyreke is holding his knee. This is unbelievable.

John Reid

Wow - Pelicans' Austin Rivers had a breakaway dunk attempt and Serge Ibaka blocked it at the rim. s.nola.com/UMB8GkW

Jason Calmes

Westbrook taking over. Amazing energy in that building from the fans.

Jim Eichenhofer

Kendrick Perkins picks up a technical foul for pushing Greg Stiemsma after the play. That matchup had serious confrontation potential

Jason Calmes

Brian Roberts will not return due to a left ankle injury.

Jim Eichenhofer

Brian Roberts (left ankle) will not return. He came down on it fairly hard on play that led to his two free throws. Pelicans down to 10 guys

John Reid

Brian Roberts will not return sprained left ankle. s.nola.com/UK6ehsZ

Jim Eichenhofer

Darius Miller already approaching his career high in scoring (16 points) by dropping in 12 points during first half at OKC. Thunder up 60-47

John Reid

Austin Rivers down - holding his head and getting hit by Russell Westbrook's knee on charging foul. He's up... s.nola.com/Qid2D2j

Jason Calmes

Already writing the recap. The good news: Miller/Rivers having very good nights. Ajinca has hit some tough Js as well.

John Reid

Pelicans have battled back from 17-point deficit to cut lead to 44-38 s.nola.com/c4hx2IK

John Reid

On drive, Pelicans guard Brian Roberts appeared to roll his left ankle. s.nola.com/MacECAZ

John Reid

Thunder taking control of the game with their backups at the start of the second quarter. OKC on 9-2 spurt... s.nola.com/avPgLQi

Jason Calmes

Jumpers not falling now and the Pelicans are down 14. Expected.

Jim Eichenhofer

Great first quarter for Darius Miller, who nailed four jumpers en route to 10 points. Also had couple deflections on D. Thunder up 30-23

Jason Calmes

Pelicans down 7, but probably worse than that. Making a lot of jumpers. Need to start getting some easier chances.

John Reid

Pelicans' Darius Miller really played well in first quarter. He made all four shots for 10 points. But... s.nola.com/caOpUNJ

John Reid

Pelicans' Al-Farouq Aminu got to give the ball up quicker - there's no driving lanes s.nola.com/WXUJQqO

Jim Eichenhofer

There's a Thunder fan 10 rows from the court yelling "Come on Russell!" just as he shoots his free throws. Not the greatest timing

John Reid

Pelicans need to go more to 7-foot-2 center Alexis Ajinca tonight - he's got the size advantage to get up... s.nola.com/UY3qYli

Jason Calmes

Rivers got 2 fouls and Roberts came in for him. Westbrook immediately attacked him twice in row. At the line for 2.

John Reid

It took Kevin Durant eight minutes into the first quarter to make his first shot from the field. s.nola.com/QCXemFS

Jason Calmes

Miller doing some damage early on. Rivers' and 1 puts the pelicans up 3

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans were down 12-4 and called timeout, but have scored 11 straight points. Darius Miller great start with 8 points in 6 minutes

John Reid

Darius Miller has made his first three shots, Pelicans showing some fight tying the score at 12. s.nola.com/E4x7asX

Jason Calmes

10-4 at first break. OKC smothering us.

John Reid

Pelicans trailing Thunder 10-4 almost four minutes into the game. Serge Ibaka has made his first three shots... s.nola.com/oSbp2rg

John Reid

Thunder coming out at in full court pressure, Austin Rivers didn't look ready. Shot clock violation. s.nola.com/2HacqG

Jason Calmes

Westbrook hounding Rivers early on.

Jim Eichenhofer

Darius Miller draws the unenviable defensive assignment of trying to slow down Kevin Durant. Jeff Withey guarding Serge Ibaka

John Reid

This feels like a football game on a basketball court here at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, but Austin Rivers... s.nola.com/iHFE9rJ
