I can't wait to see the Warriors in the playoffs, and I don't even care who they match up with.
Warriors just ended the game on your standard 64-28 run. No biggie.
Biggest comeback win of the decade?
What's worse? Blowing a 27-point lead or giving up 81 points to one player?
Scott Brooks on Isaiah Thomas: "The little guy got hot."
Big shot, Kyle Lowry.
No way Golden State loses at home to Toronto, right?
Scott Brooks is trusting Lamb and Jackson more and more. Both closed the game tonight, with Jackson getting 31 minutes and Lamb 24.
Thunder hold on against the Kings 97-95. Durant with 27 and 11 boards, Westbrook 15-8-7, Lamb with 14, Jackson with 13.
Isaiah Thomas can't catch a break in the clutch. Blocked by Andrew Bogut at the buzzer last game. Misses a game-tying J tonight.
Thunder win 97-95 in Sacramento, improve to 13-3 on the season. Eight straight wins for OKC.
Kings will blow it in the ninth.
Big-time block by Serge Ibaka right there.
Reggie Lamb with big back-to-back 3s for the Thunder.
Jeremy Lamb's face after making a 3 is a mixture of swag, confusion and boredom.
Trying to refrain from commenting on the second "play of the game." (Does that count as a comment?)
Reggie Jackson just drove by Marcus Thornton for an easy layup. Looked toward OKC bench and said: "He can't guard me man"
I like the Thunder's alternates. In fact, if I had to rank OKC's unis I'd say 1) home whites, 2) alternates, 3) road blues.
"We've had the runs here tonight." -- Brian Davis
Thunder on an 18-0 run right now. Up 17 on the Kings.
Reggie Jackson is a +27 in 19 minutes tonight. The Thunder bench has a combined plus/minus of +86. Decent.
KD with 24 points and nine rebounds through three quarters. Thunder up 78-65.
Thunder starting lineup a combined plus/minus of -29 tonight.
First guy that comes up with a fake Eurostep is going to score all the points. Is that even possible?
Obvious why teams back off Perk 18 feet from the basket, but if you don't pressure the ball, he can pick out a cutter as good as any big man
Now I'm hoping Chuck Hayes gets traded to the Thunder. Jimmer who???
Both Brian Davis and Grant Long have mistaken Kendrick Perkins for Kevin Durant in the last two minutes. What is going on in Sacramento?
I hate that about team broadcasts throughout the league. Never a negative word about home team players. But routinely poke fun at others.
Brian Davis on Chuck Hayes: "Hayes looks like he's had a couple extra biscuits for breakfast these last couple of seasons."
Somebody wanna tell me why Fox Sports Oklahoma insists on calling the Thunder "big blue?" It's unnecessary. "Thunder" works just fine.
Thunder up 50-47 at half. KD with 18 and five, Serge with 8 and 6.
Thunder lead the Kings at the half 50-47. Durant with 18, Ibaka with 8, Westbrook with 7. Thunder won the second quarter 31-16.
Thunder doubling up the Kings 28-14 in the quarter, now lead by two. KD with 18 points and five rebounds.
Nice extra pass by KD. Way to trust your teammate.
Somebody wanna tell me why Fox Sports Oklahoma decides the Play of the Game belongs in the second quarter...with 5:02 remaining???
Great minutes from all the Thunder bench players again tonight. Second-unit a combined plus/minus of +19 right now.
To try and get out in front of being asked 200 times, the Thunder went 6-6 in their alternates last season, and are 1-0 in them this season.
Reggie Jackson is 24-of-26 (92 percent) from the free throw line this season.
The Thunder shots weren't exactly divided up evenly in the first quarter: http://t.co/4bmpe0oaDQ
Another reason to love Jackson. He fires up end of quarter prayers. Not like that nonsense Durant did at the end of the third the other day.
Terrible quarter for OKC. Give up 31 to Kings without their best player. Only score 19 on 7/27 shooting.
This Reggie Jackson-Isaiah Thomas matchup is one of two of the best sixth men in the league. Thomas is off to an incredible start this year.
As bad as the Thunder offense has looked in a lonnnng time.
And now Reggie Jackson misses a rare layup. It's officially something in the water in Sacramento.
And Robert Pack just left Kevin Durant hanging. Lol
We're more than nine minutes in and KD (2/6), Westbrook (2/8) and Ibaka (2/8) are the only Thunder players to take a shot. Strange.
And Reggie Jackson is fourth off the bench. (Sigh)
Westbrook effortlessly gets to the cup...misses another layup.
The Thunder have probably missed 10 shots at the rim this quarter. Maybe more.
Jeremy Lamb first off the bench tonight. Maybe he can spark a stagnant offense (8 points, 4/17 shooting in seven minutes).
This is shaping up to be the worst quarter of the young season.
The Thunder start the game a scorching 1-12. Made their first, and then missed 11 straight shots.
I applaud any Thunder head staying up to watch this. I really do.
Make that 1-of-12 shooting for OKC. Lid on the basket. KD and Ibaka a combined 0-of-8.
Thunder with more missed laypus than points in the first five minutes. Shooting 1-of-9, trail 11-2 early.
Story of Westbrook's season. Gorgeous move to get to the rack. Can't finish the layup.
Three Thunder possessions. Three Thunder isolations.
Oh yeah, Westbrook don't like Vasquez.
Two former #2 overall picks battling at the small forward tonight: KD vs Derrick Williams. Not exactly on similar career paths though.
The Thunder win the tip!
Here we go
No DeMarcus Cousins for the Kings tonight (ankle). A 4-11 team without its best player.
Kid 25 rows up from the Thunder bench rips off his shoe and yells for Kevin Durant to come sign it. One can dream.
We're using hashtag a on signs now? http://t.co/6Ocku5zdYd
West coast games, man.
Navy blue alternate jerseys for the Thunder in Sacramento tonight. Second time this year they've worn them (win at Detroit).

Kevin Durant on his historic stat-line on Sunday: "Being in company with Michael Jordan is something you can't take for granted."
Scott Brooks called Russell Westbrook an 'elite' defender, said he's an All-Defensive Team type but 'I don't get a vote'
Harden's 2nd season per 36: 16.4 ppg (43.6 FG%, 34.9 3P%), 4.2 rpg, 2.9 apg. Lamb this year per 36: 16.7 ppg (45.0, 39.2), 4.0 rpg, 2.1 apg
Andre Roberson has been assigned to the 66ers.
Thunder guard Andre Roberson has been assigned to the 66ers.
Big win by the Blazers. But what a game by Paul George.
WHAT YALL ON?
SAC CHILLIN. LVL MOB.
That play design from Monty Williams was brilliant.
