Thunder-Pelicans about to tip on FSN. OKC has won 10 straight games against New Orleans.
Brutal - http://t.co/gX9xshPCRh
Alternate jerseys tonight.
Reggie Jackson (neck) will play tonight at New Orleans. Westbrook, ICYMI, will not to rest.
If the Thunder, Suns and Warriors all win tonight, the OKC-Dallas 2 v 7 matchup will be locked in.
Suns are no longer a first round option for the Thunder. It'll be the Mavs, Grizzlies or Warriors (longshot).
Reggie Jackson passed all medical tests but said he's unsure if he'll be able to play Monday at New Orleans. Westbrook will not (rest).
Jordan Spieth is the Kevin Durant of golf. One year at Texas, then a ridiculous ascension to the top of his sport.
The Thunder shot a three on nine of its last 10 possessions. Some were necessary, some were a bit reckless.

Clutch free throws by David West.
Spoke a little too soon. Ibaka three, KD three, Thunder cut the Pacers lead to 99-97, nine seconds left.
That was on of the more ridiculous shots I've ever seen from KD. Turning the wrong way, off balance, fading away from 3.
If the Pacers miss one more free throw...
Triple-double for Lance Stephenson. Looks like Indy's gonna pull this one out.
Four of the Thunder's last five offensive possessions have ended in 3 attempts by Westbrook or KD. Not good when both struggling.
Westbrook and Durant a combined 4-of-17 from three. RW taking some errant ones late.
Reggie Jackson is having precautionary X-rays on his neck, according to a team official. He's out for the game.
Russell Westbrook taking over late. He's been everywhere.
Russell Westbrook: can't stop, won't stop.
Three Pacers turnovers on their last five possessions.
"I'm good I'm good I'm good I'm good totally meant to do that I'm good." -- Russell Westbrook right now, probably
All Westbrook-Durant pick-and-roll, all the time. Seriously, it's OKC's best offense.
Pacers bench has 40 points on 15-of-21 shooting. Watson, Scola, Mahinmi all in double-figures.
Durant's last five games, he's just 7-30 from 3. Just 1-7 today.
Reggie Jackson was just taken to the locker room. He was holding the back of his neck as he walked toward the tunnel with the team trainer.
Scott Brooks' third quarter team talk was basically "play basketball."

After three, the Pacers lead the Thunder, 74-66.
End 3Q: Pacers up 74-66 on the Thunder. OKC is 2-of-14 from three.

Lot of frustration on the Thunder's end right now.
After all that, I wonder if Scott Foster even understood what Ibaka yelled in his face.
Serge Ibaka looked like he was about to go headbutt Scott Foster.
Bad shooting nights for all of the Thunder's big three. KD: 7/16, RW: 5/15, SIbaka: 2/8.
Add two points and another rebound for Perk.
Hibbert: 0 points, four rebounds, 0 assists, 0-for-9 shooting. Perkins: 0 points, six rebounds, one assist, 0-for-0 shooting.
Ibaka just 2-8 shooting. He's rushing a lot of his jumpers, not getting his lower body set. Just slightly out of rhythm.
I guess technically it's all day, huh?
Westbrook has been all over official John Goble all night. He might lose it at the next no-call.
