Royce Young @royceyoung
That first quarter from SGA was spectacular. – 8:38 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
The Thunder just ran its “Minnesota” set against Minnesota. – 8:38 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
End of the first quarter and the Thunder lead the Timberwolves 34-32. Towns with 12, McDaniels with 10. SGA and Roby each with 13 for OKC. Thunder were 13-for-23. – 8:38 PM

Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
The Lakers likely path to the Playoffs
1) if the 10th seed, LAL must win a Play-In game in New Orleans
2) if they win, they then must win another Play-In game at Minnesota/Clippers
Their reward if they win both elimination games on the road?

Not that I would expect them to, but I’m curious how many Thunder players know why Patrick Beverley is getting mercilessly booed. – 8:31 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The Thunder are bringing the double team on KAT from the baseline.
Against this coverage, KAT usually sticks his arm out with the ball palmed and tries to find cutters. Different than doubles from that top, where KAT tries to split with the left shoulder for a hook. – 8:27 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Isaiah Roby, fresh off a career-high 26 points, has 11 of the Thunder’s first 17 tonight. – 8:25 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards injury is not a “sore knee” or “tendinitis” — it is tendinopathy (as stated on the injury report), which is collagen degeneration. – 8:24 PM

Less than 5 minutes into the first quarter and the Thunder will be in the penalty. Wolves already up to 4 fouls. – 8:23 PM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has passed Jeff Green for sixth on the Thunder’s all-time scoring list.
Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Steven Adams and Paul George are the five ahead of SGA. – 8:18 PM

The Pelicans get out to a great start. They lead the Jazz 14-5…..the Jazz can’t get stops or find good shots on the other end of the floor. Quin Snyder calls time. 8 min remaining in the first quarter – 8:16 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Darius Bazley is guarding D’Angelo Russell tonight. Good example of Bazley’s defensive versatility. – 8:15 PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
OKC just beat Denver. Fully expect a scrappy effort from the Thunder tonight. – 8:12 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
OKC fans don’t care much for Beverley. – 8:11 PM

Patrick Beverley. Still booed in Oklahoma City. – 8:06 PM

Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Josh Hart will miss Saturday’s game at Minnesota. The reason: “Load management.”
Hart has played 3 games in 9 days since the break. And he will have had two days off before Saturday’s game at the T-Wolves.
Quite the load …
Masterful. – 8:03 PM

Mike Richman @mikegrich
The Blazers are holding out Josh Hart for rest/load management for tomorrow’s game against Minnesota. Justise Winslow (achilles) remains out, and Brandon Williams (hip) is listed as probable. – 8:01 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Eric Bledsoe (left Achilles), Josh Hart (rest), Joe Ingles (left knee), Damian Lillard (core muscle), Nassir Little (left shoulder), Didi Louzada (left knee), Jusuf Nurkic (left foot) and Justise Winslow (right Achilles) are out for Saturday’s game at Minnesota. – 8:01 PM

Malone says the #Nuggets held a very “honest” film session yesterday after their abysmal showing vs. OKC. Said they talked about how there’s only 20 games left and the West is packed. They discussed how they can’t afford to have those lapses. – 7:23 PM

Minnesota Timberwolves @Timberwolves
KAT dropped 39 PTS last game…
tonight should be fun 😼 pic.twitter.com/ysHXthp88g7:18 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
It’s helpful when the Wolves upcoming opponent has recently played DEN, because you get a tip of how KAT will be guarded based on Jokic
OKC played DEN Wednesday, guarding Jokic w/ Isaiah Roby + someone named Olivier Sarr — double team coming from baseline
KAT’s gotta cook that – 7:16 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
My @PrizePicks for Wolves-Thunder
KAT over 3.5 assists
– OKC baseline doubles, forcing KAT to skip pass (to Beasley)
DLo over 3.5 made free throws
– getting to the rim lately
SGA under 27.5 points
– they’ll load up
Poku over 11.5 points + under 8.0 rebs
– He’ll shoot a ton – 7:00 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Finch on how Karl-Anthony Towns’ role changes when Anthony Edwards is out of the lineup:
“He understands how important he is to getting Ant going. And when Ant’s not out there, he just gets more aggressive. Which is what you want to see.” – 6:49 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Tonight marks the third game of a four-game regular season series against WAS. In their last outing on 11/1, the Hawks went 29-29 from the free throw line becoming the only team in the NBA this season to go perfect from the line min. 29 FTM.
Game Notes: nba.com/gamenotes/hawk…6:45 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Finch said the coaching staff has been debating whether to start Jaden McDaniels or Malik Beasley in place of Anthony Edwards.
For now, he said, they are more comfortable with starting McDaniels given how vital Beasley has been to the success of the second unit of late. – 6:44 PM

Jarred Vanderbilt is IN tonight against OKC – 6:40 PM
