Royce Young

Awkward thing about Telfair being waived is that before last night's game, he was the one to address the crowd to wish a happy Thanksgiving.

Russell Westbrook

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE. BE THANKFUL AND GIVE THANKS ON THIS SPECIAL DAY!!!

Man, disaster start for the Charlotte Hornets. Supposed to be surprise team in the East. Instead, same 4-12 record as OKC.

Great and much needed win tonight!! I want to thank all Thunder fans for your support win or lose. #Thunderup

Story on the Thunder releasing Sebastian Telfair -- not Ish Smith -- as their hardship exception expires: es.pn/1ro9iaj

Anthony Slater

Sebastian Telfair in an Instagram post: "It's been an honor and thanks to all the OKC fans" -> instagram.com/p/v5ApVVh9lp/

Royce Young

Something to keep in mind: Westbrook is about to return, meaning Smith will be the third point guard. He won't be in the regular rotation.

Anthony Slater

Jeremy Lamb breaks out, leads monster bench effort in important Thunder win. Story from OKC -> bit.ly/1FsKGjj

Darnell Mayberry

The most significant thing in all this is confirmation that Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Mitch McGary are almost back.

Anthony Slater

With Durant, Westbrook and McGary returning soon, Thunder had to waive somebody. It was between Ish Smith and Telfair. OKC chose Telfair.

Darnell Mayberry

OKC will keep Ish Smith for now as its 15th man. His second 10-day window under the hardship rule was set to expire Thursday.

Anthony Slater

Official Thunder press release on waiving of Sebastian Telfair: http://t.co/IrGFZulOCn

Anthony Slater

Super surprising. Means Ish Smith likely to stick around. RT @Darnell Mayberry The Thunder has released guard Sebastian Telfair.

Darnell Mayberry

The Thunder has released guard Sebastian Telfair. The move gets the team's roster back to 15 players after Ish Smith was added via hardship.

Royce Young

That means that Ish Smith will remain on the roster. He's a player OKC liked during the summer but he was under contract with the Rockets.

Royce Young

With the Thunder's hardship exception expiring, the Thunder will release Sebastian Telfair to get down to the required 15-player minimum.

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks on Jeremy Lamb: "Obviously he scored a bunch of points, but he competed on the defensive end...he earned his minutes tonight."

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks walking with confidence to the podium. Me: "You swaggin' up there." Brooks: "It's about time"

Anthony Slater

Bench points tonight: Thunder 44, Jazz 3. OKC now 4-4 this season when outscoring other team's bench, 0-8 when outscored.

Anthony Slater

Important win for the Thunder: 97-82 over Utah. OKC now 4-12 on the season. Knicks on Friday, with cavalry coming.

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder wins, 97-82, to snap a six-game losing streak.

Royce Young

Thunder snap a 6-game losing streak, 97-82 over Utah. Jackson 22 and 8 assists, Ibaka 20 and 8 boards, Lamb 21 on 7-8 shooting (3-3 from 3).

Royce Young

Emotional moment as Ish Smith possibly enters the game for the last time in a Thunder uniform.

Anthony Slater

Ish Smith entering with 1:37 to play. Extremely likely it's his last game for the Thunder. Hardship runs out tomorrow.

Anthony Slater

Jeremy Lamb leaves to a standing ovation. His best performance of the season: 21 points on eight shots in 23 minutes.

Royce Young

Jeremy Lamb exits to a standing ovation: 21 points on 7-8 shooting in 23 minutes.

Royce Young

Serge Ibaka has been huge in the fourth: Six points on 3-3 shooting (18 on 8-18 overall). Providing much-needed offensive stability.

Anthony Slater

Four straight made shots for Serge Ibaka after a rough start. Just had a huge and-1. Thunder up 14 on Utah, 5:34 left.

Royce Young

Thunder have taken just six free throws tonight to Utah's 20. OKC has to find more points from the foul line this fourth quarter.

Anthony Slater

Bench points at the end of the 3rd quarter: Thunder 31, Jazz 2

Royce Young

Thunder lead 74-62 after three over Utah. The next 12 minutes will feel like six hours for OKC.

Anthony Slater

Reggie Jackson getting creative tonight -- through the legs pass here vine.co/v/O13ItmMYiXP

Royce Young

Reggie Jackson dropping a Westbrook-to-Durant-esque between-the-legs bounce pass in transition to Morrow for 3.

Royce Young

Steven Adams just punched himself in the head after a bad offensive foul. We'll have to wait and see if he gets himself suspended for that.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka 4-of-14 shooting tonight. Feels like he's short on almost every jumper.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka with 11 blocks the past three games. Looking a bit more energized on the defensive end. Plus, less zone.

Anthony Slater

Lance Thomas came in having played 400 minutes this season, third most on the team. Only eight in first half -- 9th most on roster.

Anthony Slater

---> Bench points at halftime: Thunder 25, Jazz 0.

Anthony Slater

Anthony Morrow and Jeremy Lamb were key in the first half: 19 combined points on 7-of-10 shooting off the bench.

Royce Young

Thunder lead the Jazz 56-48 at half. Jackson 14 and 4 assists, Lamb 13, Ibaka 9. OKC shooting 53.3%. Season high for points in a first half.

Anthony Slater

Down 10 at one point, the Thunder head to half up 56-48. Telling stat: Those 56 points were a season-high in a first half for OKC.

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder 56, Jazz 48 at halftime. Most points the Thunder has scored in a first half this season.

Royce Young

If it means anything (and it probably doesn't), Russell Westbrook is still using only his left hand to high-five teammates.

Anthony Slater

Jeremy Lamb -- 0-of-6 in 11 minutes the other night -- is already 4-of-4 for 11 points in nine first half minutes tonight.

Royce Young

Jeremy Lamb the early offensive spark for the Thunder: 11 points in nine minutes on 4-4 shooting.

Anthony Slater

Joe Ingles is on the All-NBA Team of guys I'd expect to see at a local YMCA playing rec ball.

Royce Young

Kevin Durant is basically a WWE hype man on the bench. Has something to say after every good thing OKC does.

Anthony Slater

Huge finish for Jeremy Lamb to end the first quarter. Nine points in four minutes. Could be one of those nights for him.

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder closes the quarter on a 16-4 run, takes a 31-29 lead into the second.

Royce Young

What a response by the Thunder second unit, finishing out the first quarter on a 16-4 run. Tons, and I mean tons, of energy from that group.

Anthony Slater

All-bench Thunder unit on a 14-2 run right now. OKC up two.

Royce Young

I mean, Nick Collison always plays hard, but man tonight he has cranked it to 11 on the defensive end.

Anthony Slater

Rudy Gobert and Dante Exum look like twin brothers -- one just sprouted to a ridiculous level.

Mike Baldwin

Former Oklahoma offensive lineman Lane Johnson's return has Philadelphia Eagles' offense looking more like normal bit.ly/1yZNpwB

Anthony Slater

Rough start for the Thunder: Down 25-15. Utah already with 18 paint points. OKC with five sloppy turnovers.

Royce Young

Andre Roberson nails a jumper wait what.

Royce Young

Jazz's nine points have come on two dunks, one interior and-1, and a layup.

Royce Young

Per Elias, two teams have made the playoffs in last 20 years after a 3-12 start (04-05 Nets and 10-11 76ers).

Anthony Slater

Two days rest. Jazz at home. Stars returning soon. This seems like the night the Thunder needs to start flipping its season.

Darnell Mayberry

Hopping on NBA TV to talk Thunder.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder had a road back-to-back in each of the season's first four weeks. This is first week OKC hasn't had one.

Anthony Slater

Thunder 4.5-point favorites over the Jazz tonight. The most OKC has been favored by all season (only favored in 3 of 16 games).

Susan Bible

Thunder Girls

As we think about tomorrow, we realize we have so much to be thankful for: thunder-nba.com/wearethunder/?…. Happy game day, and happy Thanksgiving!

Anthony Slater

To those asking, no Perry Jones tonight either. But that's not hardship related. Still out with knee contusion. Hasn't been practicing.

Anthony Slater

Serious prop bet Bovada just released - More regular season wins: Philadelphia Eagles or 76ers?

Anthony Slater

Reminder: No Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant or Mitch McGary vs Jazz tonight. Even if healthy enough, can't play because of 10-day hardship.

Thunder Girls

We had one birthday this month, so let's celebrate with Helen Ann! http://t.co/kEKQQdN0d0

No additional update on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Partially practiced today. Won't play Wednesday. Friday not out of question.
