“Portland, six hour flight, play there, travel to Chicago….get back 5 in the morning. Got a game today so. But I told you man, they told me I get to play. You know I could travel all day if I get to play.”
Day’Ron Sharpe doesn’t mind the #Nets crazy schedule one bit. PM

Mike Muscala looks like he’s wearing a Thunder microphone necklace. PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
With all the (much deserved) praise going to SGA, Dort, Giddey and Muscala, gotta give a shout to Darius Bazley and Tre Mann.
Bench Baze: 16 points on 6-9 shooting
Sixth Mann: 7 points/8 rebounds/4 assists/3 steals/everything he does looks so cool – 11:24 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Dave Early @DavidEarly
“Tired. Exhausted.” Said james Harden. Said he didn’t get to bed until past 7am from the late flight home from Chicago. – 11:06 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
Coach Nash made it sound like he’ll have Harden and Durant for the next one, the guys who rested may have caught up on some by then. – 11:03 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nash expect Harden and KD to play on Saturday against Pelicans. He says everybody is more or less caught up on rest for the time being. – 11:02 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mike Muscala in 12 minutes:
14 points
4-4 from 3
1 block
1 steal
+22 plus/minus
Thunder have 6’11” Steph Curry coming off the bench and playoff teams will be knocking at the trade deadline. But OKC doesn’t wanna cut the Moose loose. – 11:01 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Final: Thunder beat the Nets 130-109. Harden had 26 in the loss. Cam Thomas with 21. Not much to take from that given all the guys rested but the Thunder got whatever they wanted on offensively. Not new to the Nets. Pels come to town Saturday. – 10:52 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
SGA vs Nets:
33 PTS
10 REB

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
SGA subs out with 33 points/10 rebounds/9 assists.
Wish Mark Daigneault would’ve treated Shai to some triple double Skittles. – 10:49 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Also a season-high in points for OKC. Previous high was 123. – 10:49 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
SGA is going to finish an assist short of a triple-double: 33 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists – 10:48 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Thunder’s 20 3-pointers is a season high. – 10:46 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Can’t call Muscala “The Microwave” because that will always be Vinnie Johnson’s nickname so I dunno is he “The Speed Oven”? – 10:46 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Shouldn’t read too much into this game given how many guys are resting/injured — but the Nets are allowing wide open shot after wide open shot again. It’s the same issue they’ve had a lot the last few weeks. – 10:44 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Lu Dort: 27 points/9-17 shooting/6-10 from 3
James Harden: 26 points/7-22 shooting/3-11 from 3 – 10:42 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Really impressive response by OKC. Nets were gaining ground and confidence and then Shai checked back in PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Nets cut it to 8 points and had all the momentum.
Then Josh Giddey scored or assisted on 8 straight OKC points in a 1 minute span to stretch the lead back to 14. – 10:38 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
I will die for Josh Giddey three’s – 10:37 PM

If James Harden makes a three in, you know, like each of the next 13 possessions then, yeah, we’re cookin! – 10:27 PM
Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
John Konchar has shattered the single-game mark this season for rebounds by a guard off the bench with his 17 boards. Previous record was 12 by Bruce Brown. The record for any guard this year including starters is Josh Giddey’s 18 a month ago for the Thunder. – 10:27 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
The Trail Blazers haven’t employed the front/switch/double defense on Nikola Jokic that OKC/LA used in the last two games. The result? 9 points on 4-of-5 shooting, 3 assists and 2 rebounds in the first 10 minutes. – 10:26 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
The ref just announced they’re reviewing a dust up between “Griffin and #12 from Oklahoma City.”
Lol this dude didn’t even wanna attempt to pronounce Mamadi Diakite. – 10:23 PM

@Tre Mann | #ThunderUp PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Bobby Portis (@Bobby Portis) didn’t get a chance to have an all-star weekend last year in the 3-point contest because of the bubble format.
By going 4-for-7 tonight he is at 43.9% on the year, which is tied for 5th in the NBA (excl. injured Joe Harris). – 10:21 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
SGA scored on a 1v4.
Nets gonna have to throw a quintiple team at Shai if they wanna stop him. – 10:18 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the third quarter: Nets trail the Thunder 100-83. Brooklyn got the OKC lead down to 10, but was unable to get it any closer. – 10:18 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
This is why you do not sell Darius Bazley stock. – 10:13 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
The Thunder are doing exactly what they should be doing against James Harden and a patchwork JV team – 9:58 PM
Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
serious @Exhoopsmc representation in the house tonight! PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Shai Gilgeous Alexander’s 20-20-10 game was exactly 2 years ago tonight.
He’s on triple double watch with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists at the half.
(If the title favorites can keep the game close enough for Shai to play in the 4th quarter.) – 9:48 PM
Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
Career-high for points in the first half 📊
@Shai Gilgeous-Alexander | 21 PTS, 5 REB, 7 AST PM

Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
our highest scoring half of the season 📈 PM

Royce Young @royceyoung
SGA with a nice game tonight: 21 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists —
*puts finger up to ear*
Oh that was in the first half – 9:42 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Thunder (NBA black-eye) lead the Nets (consensus title favorites) by 19 points at halftime. – 9:40 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 21 points (7-11 FGs) represent a career-high for points in the first half. Thunder PR – 9:40 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Halftime: Thunder 70, Nets 51
– OKC’s highest-scoring first half before tonight was 61 points
– The 30th-ranked 3-point shooting Thunder is 11-of-24 from three
– SGA’s 21 points is his career high for points in a first half – 9:40 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets trail the Thunder 70-51 at halftime. James Harden is the only Net really scoring. Paul Millsap is getting his first significant run for the Nets in weeks. – 9:40 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Steve Nash’s fellow Canadians being rough on his Nets. Gilgeous-Alexander with 21, Lu Dort with 19 and the Thunder lead 70-51 at halftime. – 9:39 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
awkward route to get there but a nice finish by Giddey on that drive. – 9:39 PM
Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
On Da Humble
@BazleyDarius | #ThunderUp PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Tre Mann tried to use that step back to drive and that is something I hope we continue to see. Really like the different options he has as a scorer. – 9:31 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
When Lu Dort plays James Harden, he turns into James Harden with Lu Dort defense. – 9:30 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
Moose got OKC feeling loose.
Muscala has 11 points. Thunder up 15 on the Nets in Brooklyn. – 9:30 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Cam Thomas, a rookie who doesn’t know better, tries too hard to break up a long fast-break pass and now we have the dreaded clear-path review in a game that nobody wants to slow down. – 9:28 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
I appreciate that Brooklyn plays the Law & Order theme during replay reviews. Which ref is the Jerry Orbach of the NBA? – 9:28 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Luguentz Dort is 4-of-7 from three. – 9:27 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Josh Giddey fights for a rebound, drives baseline, goes airborne into a crowd of Nets, fires a one handed bullet to cross court to Lu Dort, Luguentz hits his third 3 of the game. PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
The Nets look every bit like a tired team playing its fourth game in five nights — in their third different time zone in as many games. – 9:25 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Reggie Miller is right: Steph Curry still feels like the leader in the MVP race, but it’s tightening. Durant, Giannis, Embiid, Ja, the vote could be interesting come April. – 9:22 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
I bet the Bucks love all the talk about the Nets and the Bulls and everyone else. Because Milwaukee is crazy good and still relatively under the radar – 9:22 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
I watched Ty Jerome get agitated pregame because he couldn’t quite hit that super high arching jumper from the paint. He kept shooting until he did. I appreciate that because I spend a lot of time perfecting skills I don’t actually need in real life. – 9:15 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Mamadi Diakite checks in for his Thunder debut. – 9:13 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
SGA scored 8 points vs the Nuggets and people started to drag him.
He’s scored 48 points in the 5 quarters since. – 9:12 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Pretty predictable first quarter between the Thunder, who want to play tonight, and the Nets, who don’t really. Thunder shoot 59% and lead 38-26. Gilgeous-Alexander with 16. – 9:12 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
End 1Q: Thunder 38, Nets 26
OKC’s highest-scoring first quarter of the season. – 9:09 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
Shai with 16 points in 10 minutes so far. He’s on pace for 1,000 points tonight if this game goes into 115 overtimes, which would set an NBA record. – 9:07 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
SGA and Dort have 26 of OKC’s 32. – 9:05 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Darius Bazley with a big boy finish – 9:05 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
The Bucks picked up Wesley Matthews mid-season as a free agent and now have had him guarding Kevin Durant one night and Steph Curry the next. Maybe the break was good for him but he’s been a great addition to the roster and his defensive versatility should be important. – 9:02 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
SGA came in with 17 corner 3-point attempts all season. He has two in the first quarter tonight. – 8:59 PM
Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
doesn’t have to be perfect 😅
stick with it and finish the play 😌 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is awesome. – 8:55 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Get the Shai Gilgeous-Alexander counter going. He has 12 straight points midway through the first quarter. – 8:54 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Shai is cookin’. Eleven points in six minutes. – 8:54 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
SGA gets set up for a spot-up 3 and nails it. Would help to get him more open looks from 3 like that. – 8:53 PM

Steve Nash said it just “wouldn’t be smart” to play Durant or Mills with the workload they’ve had lately. So it’s Harden plus Bruce Brown, Bembry and rookies Edwards and Sharpe in the starting lineup against the Thunder. – 8:41 PM
