Thunder are sort of in a win-win today. Win, and they lock up the No. 2 seed. Lose, and they help the Pacers get the No. 1 seed.
I feel like if someone told Caron Butler to make an extra pass, he'd say, "What's an extra pass?"
Roy Hibbert 0-for-4 on some pretty easy looks.
Lance Stephenson went all Rick Flair on the mic while addressing the fans just before tip.
The Thunder can lock up the 2-seed with a win over the Pacers today.

On coaching: "I hope so. We'll see. I always hear the guys that can play a little bit aren't smart enough to be coaches, but I'm learning.
KD grabbed the whiteboard tonight and drew up that corner 3 for Lamb. "Yeah that was all me right there. I'm trying to work on my future."
Spurs beat the Suns tonight and clinched the West's top seed. Thunder's magic number for #2 seed is one.
Here's Austin Rivers full quote on Serge Ibaka's defensive impact. Interesting stuff: http://t.co/hYwpAonHii
Austin Rivers on Serge Ibaka: "Their defense is all on him. Without Ibaka, this is a whole different team."
KD: "Very honored for guys to speak about me like that."
KD: "As a player you love to have that respect from your peers, him being one of the greatest players to play."

With tonight's win, the Thunder clinched home court in any potential NBA Finals. They'll have a better record than everyone from the East.
If Durant picks up a 16th technical, no, it does not carry over to the postseason. Clean slate.
Serge Ibaka gonna sit the fourth, otherwise could've had a triple-double: 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks in 29 minutes.
Seconds later, Lamb pops up off the bench. He hadn't played tonight but is about to check in.
Fan about five rows behind the Thunder's bench just shouted "Where's Jeremy Lamb?" An old lady adds: "Yeah?" Gotta say, they've got a point.
Big-time game for Serge Ibaka. Exits with 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks in 29 minutes.
Nevermind: According to Thunder rep, a 16th technical on the last game wouldn't carry over at all. Not in playoffs or next season.
Pelicans are calling Tyreke Evans' injury a right knee bone bruise. He won't return tonight.
Thunder 87, Pelicans 62 after three.
Tyreke has a right bone bruise and will not return.
Weird thought: If Kevin Durant gets technical #16 vs Detroit on the final game of the season, he'd have to sit the opener next year.
Technical #15 for Kevin Durant. One away from a one-game suspension. Maybe he should just get another to get himself some rest.
Technical foul on Kevin Durant. Must have had some magic words for Ed Malloy. That's his 15th tech of the year, one away from a suspension.

Russell Westbrook just stuffed 7-foot-2 Pelicans center Alexis Ajinca.
After the Thunder got carried away with some overly flashy stuff, Scott Brooks subs in Nick Collison. Back to the fundamentals, guys.

Russell Westbrook went for showtime on the break again annnnnnnnnd missed it.

Austin Rivers would've had a better chance there if he had pulled up from 3.
Serge Ibaka just owned Austin Rivers on a chase-down block. Top play material.
Russell Westbrook with 22 points (9/14 FG), five rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes. Thunder lead up to 71-54.
Thabo Sefolosha last year: 108 threes on 42% shooting from deep. This year: 48 threes on 34% from deep. Huge drop-off.

Austin Rivers just cracked his head so hard that he started stumbling the wrong way to his bench. And he stayed in the game.
Great sequence by Ibaka. Blocked Tyreke layup at one end. Ran the floor for a fast-break dunk at the other.
11-0 Pelicans run cuts a 17-point lead to six.
I can't decide if Luke Babbitt looks like a 70s folk singer, or your weird eight-year-old cousin that's way too into fireworks.
Perry Jones into the game in the second quarter. First time he's got non mop-up minutes since mid-March.
Luke Babbitt's hair just checked in to the game.

Westbrook, Durant and Ibaka have scored all 30 of the Thunder's points.
Darius Miller and Austin Rivers with a combined 13 points on 5/5 shooting in the first eight minutes. Doing it on KD/Westbrook.
Still little to no MVP chants for Durant when he steps to the line. Second-to-last home game of the season.
Serge Ibaka 8, Pelicans 2.
Fifteen seconds in and Serge Ibaka just postered the crap out of Greg Stiemsma.
