Russell Westbrook: 1-8 from 3.
Suns have outscored the Thunder 14-4 since Russell Westbrook went to the bench. Phoenix up nine. Westbrook set to return.
Seriously, does Dion Waiters have another move?
Suns lead 86-84 after three. Westbrook 20 (5-22 shooting), six rebounds and nine assists, Kanter 18, Waiters 13.
I bet when Markieff Morris orders a mocha latte he trash talks the barista.
Dion Waiters' mechanics are so poor. Look at him leaning back and to the left on a free throw for crying out loud: http://t.co/BdvDS98d4e
Dion Waiters has a lot of Jeremy Lamb in him in the sense that he appears to have a hard time getting over missed shots. Keeps shooting tho.
That quick catch-and-shoot from Morrow is something he non-stop works on. Incredibly impressive shot.
This Westbrook-Bledsoe battle heating up now, too.
The slow offensive start was ugly, but the Thunder's defense has been plain poor all night.
And now the Suns lead. Shaping up to be a good one in Phoenix.
Getting good in Phoenix. Both teams heating up.
Westbrook was one step in from the free throw line when he took off on that layup. Straight gliding.
Kyle Singler is Sam Presti the NBA player.
15-0 Thunder run
Suns looking real shook right now.
13-0 Thunder run.
6-0 run to start the second half and the Thunder lead.
Russell Westbrook's bad first half explained: http://t.co/H68XOdp66L
Augustin, Waiters and Kanter: 31 points on 11-13 shooting. Westbrook, Ibaka and Singler: 13 points on 4-23 shooting.
Reason OKC is in it -Enes Kanter: 12 pts, 3 rebs -Dion Waiters: 9 pts, 4/4 FG -D.J. Augustin: 10 pts, 3 asts, 4/5 FG
Suns lead the Thunder 53-48 at half. Kanter 12, Augustin 10, Westbrook 8 (2-14 shooting), 5 rebounds and 5 assists, Waiters 9, Ibaka 5.
Suns 53, Thunder 48 at half.
Thunder only down 53-48 at half despite Westbrook/Ibaka shooting a combined 4/20 in the first half.
Story of the first quarter: bad offense. Story of the second quarter: better offense, worse defense.
Matt Kemp and Larry Fitzgerald in the house.
Dion Waiters with a team-high nine points on 4/4 FG. This is where he has real value. Team struggling, he has ability to get hot.
Dion Waiters playing a big part in keeping the Thunder in the game this first half.
Welp. At least The Olate Dogs are performing at halftime. Paradise chocolate chip cookies AND The Olate Dogs? Thank you, Phoenix!
Russell Westbrook 1-of-12 shooting in the first half. Thunder 9-of-34.
Man, Westbrook just can't make anything. Even his one make was almost a point blank miss.
You know who is having a heck of a first half? D.J. Augustin
Thunder bench has stabilized things a bit. Non-Kanter starters a combined 0-of-15 shooting.
Just learned Earl Barron is still in the NBA.
Can we nickname the Morris twins The Llamas, and just be done with this?
Only 15 first quarter points for the Thunder. The fewest in any quarter since the All-Star break. Phoenix up 10.
After one, Suns 25, Thunder 15. OKC's 15 points ties a season low for points scored in the first quarter.
Well, that was a terrible first quarter for the Thunder. Shot 5-23 (21.7%) and turned it over four times. Somehow only down 25-15.
Nothing else is working at the moment, and so OKC starts to dump it into Kanter for higher-percentage looks. He's already gotten four FTAs.
As much as folk bag on it these days, we're seeing an example of when and how a low-post scoring threat (Kanter) helps the Thunder immensely
Russell Westbrook has started this one 0-8 shooting.
Westbrook now 0-for-8. Thunder 3-for-18.
Somebody getting tossed tonight.
Russell Westbrook and Markieff Morris get a double-T. Westbrook #1 in NBA with 13 techs, Morris #2 with 12.
Westbrook and the Morris twins getting into it...again. Double T on Westbrook and Markieff. Russ' NBA-leading 13th of the season
Technical foul on Westbrook, his 13th of the season. If you'll recall, Westbrook got tossed in the last Thunder-Suns meeting.
Andre Roberson has his name mispronounced more than Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Kevin Durant with a 'boo-yah' ode to Stu Scott on the shoes he wore pregame http://t.co/hj79I2ewmg
It's funny how much worse a 12-2 deficit looks compared to a 52-42 one even when it's the same margin.
Wonder how much Verizon paid to have the scoreboard screens in the shape of a cell phone. Kinda cool. http://t.co/GeUFijS8NI
Russell Westbrook just got the biggest ovation I've ever heard him receive on the road. Times are a changing.
Thunder 5-point favorites on the road in Phoenix without Kevin Durant. A lot has changed for both teams in past few weeks.
Does Iman Shumpert's hair technically make him 6-7 or 6-8 instead of 6-5? How does that work? http://t.co/GiVPnjB4nS
The Miami Heat just can't quit Michael Beasley. Guess everyone has an addiction.
Free C-Murder, RIP to Soulja Slim...

Thunder two games back of the Spurs for #7 and have two games left with them.
James Harden fights through that ankle turn and hits big 3. What a year he's having.
Don't forget now
