Biggest sign that "playoff" Fisher is finally here? Fans only hit 1 half court shot tonight. Fisher on the other hand hit THREE triples.— Thunder Stats & Info (@ThunderStats) April 22, 2013
Kevin McHale does not look pleased.
Things easier than staying in front of Russell Westbrook: catching a live hummingbird, holding the wind, listening to a full Nickelback song— Royce Young (@dailythunder) April 22, 2013
Hasheem Thabeet throws down the dunk. We still have 4:19 left until this one's official.
James Harden's two trips to Oklahoma City this season: 9-35, 37 points.— Royce Young (@dailythunder) April 22, 2013

A fan hit a halfcourt shot for $20k before the fourth quarter! It's the third in this arena this season.
The Thunder have blown this one open and lead by 23 headed into the fourth.
Russell Westbrook goes the length of the floor for the score in less than four seconds to close out the half.
Westbrook needs two more rebounds for a triple double.— Thunder Obsessed (@ThunderObsessed) April 22, 2013
Russell Westbrook got called for the charge but before that he absolutely shook Patrick Beverley.
Nothing is working right now. Rockets shooting 36% FG, 19% 3PT with 14 turnovers. Down 20 with 3:11 Q3. Trying to remain positive, but...— Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) April 22, 2013
OKC big 3 of KD/Russ/Ibaka have 53 points between them. Rockets' Harden/Parsons/Lin threesome: 33. HOU trails by 20.— Jason Friedman (@JasonCFriedman) April 22, 2013
Serge Ibaka is now 7-for-10 from the field tonight after hitting his second three.
Lin sits with 5 1/2 left in third with four fouls. He's 1 of 6 with 4 p, 3a, 3r and 4tos. Way this is going, he might not be back. OKC by 19— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) April 22, 2013
Doesn't look like the Rockets will be the first roadie to steal a game. Which begs the question...who will?— NBA Guru (@NBAGuru) April 22, 2013
Kendrick Perkins throws the lob to Serge Ibaka and Chesapeake Arena is going nuts.
