OTHER PERSPECTIVES: Daily Thunder

PREVIOUSLY, THE OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER...have won two of three games on their current home stand, beating Golden State 112-104 on Sunday and Denver 101-84 on Friday after losing 96-86 to Chicago last Wednesday.

Kevin Durant has now scored at least 25 points in twenty-one straight games, scoring more than 30 points sixteen times during that stretch.

The Thunder defeated the Hawks 94-91 in Atlanta on January 18th.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

I hope Paul Pierce is okay, but if he really has a broken foot, will Josh Smith be the reserve call-up at the All Star game?

I think he would have to be.
