We've got another December birthday girl - let's celebrate with Chelsie! http://t.co/e3XFdoGmlY
McGary missed the first month of the season with a fractured foot, finally made his season debut Sunday, now this. Rough rookie year.
Mitch McGary is out for the next 2-3 weeks with periostitis (inflammation) in his left tibia. His court activity will be lowered.
Bout to go walk around San Fran
Key stat within Russell Westbrook's efficiency improvement: Took a career-high 4.7 3s per game last year. Has cut it to 2.8 this season.
Looking for good questions for our next podcast. Go!
The kiwis that came out to Sacramento, thank you. Thank you for bringing a piece of home to the US.
Steven Adams was icing the upper left side of his left calf/knee area postgame. Minor limp, but not expected to be serious.
Kevin Durant with a season-high 35 minutes tonight.
Durant played 34 minutes tonight. Scott Brooks said the other night the minute restriction was raised.
Thunder beat the Kings 104-92. Westbrook 32 points, six rebounds, seven assists, four steals, Durant with 26. Thunder now 12-13.
Thunder are about to win their seventh straight. With the Warriors losing, that's longest win streak in the NBA currently.
Seven blocks for Serge Ibaka tonight.
"I get up."
Ryan Hollins angry at Steven Adams. Least surprising tweet of the night.
That didn't last long.
First time the Thunder has trailed in the past three games.
Kevin Durant reenters. He's played 27 minutes. First time this year he'll play more than 30 (restriction has been raised).
Kings burst out to an 11-2 run to start the fourth quarter. It's on an all-bench unit for OKC. Thunder lead down to one.
There's a fine line between being aggressive and forcing. Lamb's trending toward the latter right now.
Since his run of incredible efficient scoring, Jeremy Lamb has gotten progressively worse at forcing shots.
Thunder lead 81-71 after three. Westbrook 22-6-7, Durant 20 (27 minutes played).
Four fouls on Russell Westbrook with 15 minutes still left. Something to watch.
Woah that was a great pass by...Serge Ibaka.
Remarkable thing about that: LeBron has had like seven streaks of eight games or longer of 20-5-5. He's just silly.
Last 20 years, only one player has had a longer 20-5-5 streak than Westbrook: LeBron James with 12.
Nine straight games of at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists for Russell Westbrook.
Thunder's past three first halves have been 70, 70 and 61 points. When injured in November, OKC went 3 games straight with 89, 65 and 81.
Last three games, the Thunder are averaging 67.0 points in the first half. 70, 70 and now 61 tonight.
Thunder lead the Kings 61-54 at half. Westbrook 19-5-5, Durant 11, Morrow 10.
That dunk was viral.
Nightly triple-double alert for Russell Westbrook: 19 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds late in second quarter.
Russell Westbrook's lefty (off-hand) finish is better than 90 percent of NBA player's dominant hands right now. Maybe even his own.
That was weird KD hesitating on that wide open straightaway 3.
Anthony Morrow with 10 first half points: 3/3 from deep, including a 4-point play. Under-the-radar pickup that continues to pay off.
Morrow is really unique because he jumps forward on his shot. The rookie Stauskas was unaware.
Average score of the Thunder's last three first quarters: 38.0 to 23.3.
Thunder's last three first quarters: 114 points -- 39 in Minnesota, 41 vs Suns, 34 at Sacramento. Rolling right now.
Another monster start for Russell Westbrook: 12 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals in first eight minutes.
Kendrick Perkins checking in. Solid boos.
Nice round of boos for Kendrick Perkins upon entering.
Are we sure the Kings aren't trying the 4-on-5 thing already?
That's 15,000 points for Kevin Durant, the second youngest ever to reach that milestone at 26 years, 78 days. Took him just 550 games.
Congratulations to Kevin Durant -- he hit his 15,000th point. Not too shabby, huh?
Road whites for the Thunder. Rare but awesome jersey look.
Reggie Evans v Steven Adams and Kendrick Perkins at center tonight. Guessing it gets just a little physical.
Warriors fall in Memphis. Thunder now own the league's longest winning streak: 6 games.
Mitch McGary is out tonight with left shin soreness. Not believed to be serious at all. Jeremy Lamb (foot) is active.
Kevin Durant on Kobe's points milestone: "Congratulations to Kobe. He’s always striving for more, but I hope he can appreciate what he did"
Asked Scott Brooks about that rumored Kings '4-on-5' strategy: "Uh...I don't know. Don't want to judge it if I've never seen it before"
Tony Allen is what Kendrick Perkins would look like if he was a 6-4 shooting guard.
Scott Brooks asked if it can be tough facing a team that has a midseason coaching change: "Well, we were 1-13 in my first 14 games"
Kings fans waiting for Kendrick Perkins http://t.co/6pY3yvKXqP
Peja Stojakovic's jersey getting retired tonight. Pregame Q&A with fans and late 90's Kings http://t.co/3NOlf1Z54f
With 3 points tonight, Kevin Durant will become 131st player ever with 15K in a career. KD:"I didn't know...other than you saying something"
Injuries devastated OKC early. Luck has turned lately. No LeBron vs Cavs, Dragic vs Suns, Rubio/Pekovic vs Wolves and Cousins v Kings.
A walk among the tombstones
Defying gravity ... http://t.co/pFNyV0xNPo
The Thunder scored 100 or more points only four times the first 16 games. Done it in seven of the eight since Russell Westbrook's return.
Of course Durant spent one year in college while LeBron went from high school to the NBA. It'll take KD 550 games. LeBron needed 540.
Kevin Durant will become the second youngest to reach 15,000 points on Tuesday at 26 years, 78 days. LeBron did it at 25 years, 79 days.
Westbrook's per 36 numbers don't seem real: 31.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 8.3 assists.
Remove the game Westbrook broke his hand (scored only two points in nine minutes) and he's averaging 28.4 ppg on 49%, 6.4 rpg and 7.1 apg.
