Clippers resting their guys, probably fully expecting OKC to handle business. Except the Thunder are down nine to the Pistons.

Darnell Mayberry

Welp. You knew it was coming. You didn't know it'd only take a half. But Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has a career-high 18 points.

Royce Young

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has a new career-high of 18... with 5:19 left in the first half.

Darnell Mayberry

Pistons 46, Thunder 37.

Royce Young

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has 15 with six minutes left in the first quarter, two away from his career-high.

Darnell Mayberry

Tony Brothers just explained that Reggie Jackson had to establish himself in the frontcourt. He hadn't, which is why a backcourt was called.

Anthony Slater

Also, game of relevance: Grizzlies up 29-24 on the Mavs at the end of the first quarter.

Darnell Mayberry

After one, the Grizzlies lead the Mavs, 29-24.

Anthony Slater

End 1Q: Thunder trail the Pistons 30-28. Clippers fans getting a little more interested.

Darnell Mayberry

After one, the Pistons lead the Thunder 30-28.

Darnell Mayberry

Pistons are still in the game.

Anthony Slater

Pretty nasty KD slam in Game #82 vine.co/v/M1WajihrZtI

Royce Young

Kevin Durant just dropped the hammer on Andre Drummond.

Royce Young

Steven Adams checks in. Had his best (statistical) game of the season against the Pistons, fourth game in: 17 points, 10 rebounds.

Anthony Slater

Thabo Sefolosha with a game-high seven points in the first quarter. AN OFFENSIVE OUTBURST.

Anthony Slater

Thabo Sefolosha, on the fastbreak, with Durant on one side and Westbrook on the other, basically just said: "Nah, I got this"

Royce Young

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's career high is 17, Rodney Stuckey's is 40, Brandon Jennings' is 55... if you're wondering.

Anthony Slater

How I'm watching the games tonight http://t.co/K4MdKMt7JL

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook takes a hard fall and gets up slowly (he's fine), reminding everyone why it's stupid he's even having to play this game.

Anthony Slater

Caron Butler talking to the crowd at center-court: "It's our time, it's our time"

Anthony Slater

Thunder unveiling a fourth straight Northwest Division Championship banner tonight.

Anthony Slater

Brooks on Cheeks: "He took the job with the understanding he was going to get a fair opportunity. Unfortunately he didn't."

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks on Mo Cheeks' firing in Detroit: "When you give somebody 50 games, it's hard to comprehend...I don't think that was deserved."

Darnell Mayberry

I may be wrong. But I think Thabo Sefolosha just walked in wearing a throwback Bullets hat.

Royce Young

Scott Brooks asked about MVP: "I just can't wait to see the voter's votes. I'm looking forward to the transparency."

Royce Young

Scott Brooks was just asked how important it is for the Thunder to win a championship. Really good question. Really, really good.

Royce Young

The Thunder will play their playoff opener on Saturday. Opponent and time still to be determined.

Royce Young

Brooks says Russell Westbrook's restrictions will be entirely lifted this weekend.

Royce Young

Scott Brooks says regular starters tonight and their goal is to win the game. Meaning, they aren't taking this easy.

Anthony Slater

Regular starting lineup for the Thunder tonight.

Darnell Mayberry

Based on past years, there's a good chance the Thunder will unveil it's Northwest Division championship banner before the game tonight.

Serge Ibaka

Vamos el clasico!!!!!!

Anthony Slater

Even if the Mavs lose, there's a chance the Thunder gets Dallas' 1st-rounder. But it's trickier. Explaining here: bit.ly/1gB2fzw

Thabo Sefolosha

There's another reason for Thunder fans to root for Dallas tonight. If the Mavs win, OKC gets their 1st-rd pick: bit.ly/1gB2fzw

Royce Young

Per @Tom Haberstroh, Russell Westbrook's PER was 20.2 before the All-Star break, and 28.7 after: es.pn/1nqrauv

Kevin Durant on the Thunder's playoff opponent: "We're not scared of anybody, no matter who we play. We don't fear anybody."

My story on the final night of the season, which brings playoff/seeding implications for the Thunder: bit.ly/1t89Yhe

Anthony Slater

Clippers beat the Nuggets. Second seed comes down to the final night. OKC clinches with win over Pistons or Clipper loss in Portland.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder easily leading the league in technicals this season (stat graphic via TNT): http://t.co/rRfUncZLnD

Anthony Slater

Blake Griffin just got his 16th technical of the season. Will be suspended (if not rescinded) for Clippers finale in Portland tomorrow.

Anthony Slater

Most minutes played this season: 1. Kevin Durant - 3,077 2. DeMar Derozan - 2,995 3. Carmelo Anthony - 2,982 ... 30. Serge Ibaka - 2,364

Anthony Slater

Clippers up 13-0 early lol

Anthony Slater

Clippers-Nuggets tipping off in about 10 minutes on TNT. Thunder clinches second-seed with a L.A. loss.

Darnell Mayberry

Ernie Johnson just said TNT will have three games on Sunday. They don't know which ones yet. But they showed a lot of OKC B roll.

Just talked to a lady who used to work at a Chipotle in OKC. Said Kevin Durant came in once, bought a $14 meal and tipped her $86.

A CLEAN ECLIPSE OUTSIDE. WOW

Anthony Slater

Here is a complete look at the Thunder's remaining playoff scenarios, which are starting to clear up: bit.ly/1hGtcXI

Anthony Slater

Simple for OKC: If Thunder gets #2 seed (likely), they face winner of Mavs-Grizz on Wed. If they fall to #3 (unlikely), face Warriors.

Anthony Slater

Entering the season's final two nights, the Thunder could still possibly play the Warriors, Mavericks and Grizzlies in Round 1.

Anthony Slater

AP photo that perfectly describes tonight's Thunder game: http://t.co/45wq3d8BwR

Anthony Slater

Thabo Sefolosha didn't play a second in the fourth tonight. Tyreke Evans had 17 in the quarter.

Royce Young

The Thunder just needed to not play terrible against the Pelicans. And they played terrible -- recap and notes: dailythunder.com/2014/04/thunde…

Anthony Slater

On this episode of ridiculous Kevin Love outlet passes... vine.co/v/MJIelYbrY0O

Anthony Slater

In eight April games, Kevin Durant is shooting 43 percent overall (79-of-180) and 25 percent from three (15-of-59).

Royce Young

Pelicans beat OKC 101-89. Durant with 25-7-6, Ibaka 22, 16 rebounds and 5 assists, Butler with 19. OKC just 9-32 from 3.

Anthony Slater

Thunder magic number to clinch #2 seed remains one. Need a win over Detroit on Wednesday or Clipper loss to Nuggets or Blazers.

Anthony Slater

Bad loss to a bad Pelicans team. Now Thunder probably can't rest KD/others on Wednesday unless Clippers lose to Denver tomorrow.

Darnell Mayberry

Final: Pelicans 101, Thunder 89.

Royce Young

Well, this was a bad loss for OKC. Means they'll need to beat the Pistons at home on Wednesday to secure the No. 2. (Or hope LA loses.)

Royce Young

Amazing that going with Derek Fisher on Tyreke Evans somehow didn't slow him down. Can't believe it either.

Darnell Mayberry

The Thunder bench looks in disbelief.

Anthony Slater

Players who have dropped 40-plus on the Thunder since the All-Star break: Jodie Meeks, Gerald Green and Tyreke Evans.

Darnell Mayberry

There goes that man again.

Darnell Mayberry

Tyreke now has 37 points, and the Pelicans are up, 90-84, on the Thunder with 3:34 left to play in New Orleans. #LeaguePassAlert

Anthony Slater

Tyreke Evans with a career-high 37 points. Pelicans up eight.

Royce Young

Recap for this Thunder game: "Sigh."

Anthony Slater

Spurs against the Rockets/Thunder: 0-8. Spurs against everyone else: 62-11.

Anthony Slater

Tyreke Evans: 30 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals. Dominating his matchup with Reggie Jackson (4 pts, 3 asts, 1/5 FG).

Darnell Mayberry

Pelicans 83, Thunder 79 with 6:26 left to play in New Orleans. #LeaguePassAlert

Darnell Mayberry

Awful night of basketball from Reggie Jackson tonight.

Anthony Slater

Solid game from Serge Ibaka: 20 points, 14 rebounds and a career-high five assists.

Darnell Mayberry

You need energy? Andre Roberson's got energy.

Royce Young

Andre Roberson is doing things.

Anthony Slater

Like Scott Brooks' move to insert Andre Roberson. Team needed energy. He brings it. Immediate block/dunk for Roberson.

Darnell Mayberry

Pelicans starting this fourth looking real unsure of themselves. Tyreke looks like the only one confident with the ball.
