Congrats Peyton! We are witnessing a legend!
Scott Brooks on Russell Westbrook's 3 preseason techs: "He's gotta control his emotions better. You're not going to get every foul call."
Congrats to the great Peyton Manning! We take him for granted because he's so consistent but we are witnessing a living legend!
Perry Jones had 21 points on 7-15 shooting with 8 rebounds tonight in Tulsa. Outside of that, not much else notable in OKC's 112-94 loss.
Depleted Thunder roster has lost its last three preseason games by a combined 71 points.
Official word from Thunder is Russell Westbrook is healthy enough to return, but Scott Brooks (smartly) giving him rest of night off.
Russell Westbrook comes out of the game, wrist checked out by a trainer. But he's staying on the bench. Doesn't seem to be serious.
Probably about time Scott Brooks throws his rotation players in a safehouse and doesn't let them out til the opener.
Hard tumble for Russell Westbrook on a drive, now holding his left wrist.
Serge Ibaka went down with what looked like a right leg injury. Took a little while to get up. But walking it off, staying in the game.
Perry Jones is 3-of-12 from the free throw line this preseason.
The streak continues!! Russell Westbrook with a technical foul in his third straight preseason game.
Serge Ibaka just flew in for a chasedown block of Thaddeus Young in transition. Hamstring/calf/ankle must be feeling healthy.
Kevin Martin to Russell Westbrook, as Westbrook peers over the new-look Wolves pregame: "We'd win a dunk contest"
Flip Saunders said playing without Kevin Durant for a period could eventually make the Thunder better. HIs comments: http://t.co/nTZlh7UpSD
Add Jeremy Lamb to list of minor Thunder injuries. Left heel contusion, out tonight.
Thunder starting lineup the same as Friday: Westbrook, Roberson, Morrow, Ibaka, Adams.
Jeremy Lamb (left heel contusion) will not play tonight. Starters: Westbrook, Morrow, Roberson, Adams and Ibaka or Jones if Ibaka can't go.
Call his mama, his head was still in his helmet
Get hot Jameis
RIP Chris Farley, one of my favorite childhood actors
New exhaust sounds mean
With his helmet on, Clint Trickett looks like small child playing college football. With it off, he's the most handsome man in the world.
That said, Hunnicutt looked like he was kicking for a year's worth of free Chik-Fil-A there.
Remember you guys: Michael Hunnicutt feels WAY worse about this than you do.
Man I love football Saturday's
Brilliant move by Heupel, calling for a pick 6 out wide to open up the middle on next drive.
Another day to get better!
