Before Caron Butler left the locker room, he hollered over at Russell Westbrook. "Hey Russ, follow me on Twitter."
Brooks on Fisher's block: "I don't how he did it. You guys were probably just as in awe as I was."
Brooks comes in, says UC-Irvine was playing Fullerton in baseball and needed to see the final score. He got the jokes.

More good news, Thunder fans: OKC has just secured Dallas' first round pick. Will be 21st, 22nd or 23rd overall.
Mavs-Grizzlies just went into overtime.
I'll never forget where I was when Derek Fisher blocked Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at the rim.

Jennings heave was RIGHT on line. Front rim. I thought it was going in the whole way.

Brandon Jennings looks scared of Russell Westbrook. Been that way since he was in Milwaukee.
Did Derek Fisher just block Kentavious Caldwell-Pope? Surely not, right?
Another 44 minutes for Kevin Durant tonight. Another 40 points.
Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka having a heated argument about that missed defensive assignment.
When I was looking at the schedule a month ago, didn't expect the biggest two minutes of the season being against the Pistons.
Four Pistons have scored at least 20 points. One of them has scored 30, rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
It's still about the 2-seed, but man, it's also about not losing to the stinking Pistons. Not they way you want to be entering the playoffs.
Andre Drummond fouls out with 22 and 13 rebounds. Just dominated OKC's bigs tonight.
But the Thunder can't get consistent stops. Still down eight.
KD doing everything he can offensively to bring the Thunder back. Now has 35 points, 14 in the first seven minutes of the fourth.
New chant..."Where is Thabo?"
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope with 28 points. Incredulous Thunder fan behind me: "Who is this guy?!?!" Detroit up nine, 8:50 left.

Man, sometimes Andre Drummond looks gooooooooood.
Drummond and Monroe are doing whatever they want. This is incredible.
Durant is 4-13, Westbrook is 4-11, the Thunder are 5-18 from 3. It's not been a good game.
I don't think the Thunder is a dumb organization. If the broadcast crew announces a certain way, I'm sure it's for a reason.
I agree with what Berry Tramel said on the radio the other day. Far more fans probably want to hear positive spin than truth.
Thunder has cut the Pistons lead to 55-54 at halftime. Reggie Jackson (13 points on 5/6 FG) was big.
Pistons lead the Thunder 55-54 at half. Jackson 13, Durant 13 and 4 assists, Westbrook 9 and 4 assists, Ibaka 4 and 8 rebounds.
At halftime, the Pistons lead the Thunder 55-54.
What's the broadcast crew saying? Why is everybody griping about them tonight?
Reggie Jackson 3-for-3 from 3.
...and counting for Caldwell-Pope. He's now got 20. Pistons 48, Thunder 37.
Clippers resting their guys, probably fully expecting OKC to handle business. Except the Thunder are down nine to the Pistons.
Welp. You knew it was coming. You didn't know it'd only take a half. But Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has a career-high 18 points.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has a new career-high of 18... with 5:19 left in the first half.

Tony Brothers just explained that Reggie Jackson had to establish himself in the frontcourt. He hadn't, which is why a backcourt was called.
Also, game of relevance: Grizzlies up 29-24 on the Mavs at the end of the first quarter.
After one, the Grizzlies lead the Mavs, 29-24.

Steven Adams checks in. Had his best (statistical) game of the season against the Pistons, fourth game in: 17 points, 10 rebounds.
Thabo Sefolosha with a game-high seven points in the first quarter. AN OFFENSIVE OUTBURST.
Thabo Sefolosha, on the fastbreak, with Durant on one side and Westbrook on the other, basically just said: "Nah, I got this"
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's career high is 17, Rodney Stuckey's is 40, Brandon Jennings' is 55... if you're wondering.
How I'm watching the games tonight http://t.co/K4MdKMt7JL
Russell Westbrook takes a hard fall and gets up slowly (he's fine), reminding everyone why it's stupid he's even having to play this game.
Caron Butler talking to the crowd at center-court: "It's our time, it's our time"
