Thunder vs. Suns will draw record crowd
Friday’s preseason game between the Thunder and Phoenix Suns at the BOK Center in Tulsa has been declared a sellout (18,233) and will draw the largest crowd in the arena’s four-year history. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
Rosters for the Blue and White scrimmage on Thursday have yet to be determined, but Thunder coach Scott Brooks said the teams will be coached by assistants Rex Kalamian and Maz Trakh.
A capacity crowd also is anticipated for the first-ever Blue and White scrimmage in Tulsa, which will be held at the $50 million SpiritBank Event Center, a 4,500-seat facility (10441 S. Regal Blvd.) that serves as the new home of the Thunder’s NBA Developmental League affiliate – the Tulsa 66ers. Tipoff is at 6 p.m. There is no radio or television broadcast.
“It’s amazing,” Thunder guard Russell Westbrook said of the team’s statewide support. “I haven’t really been to Tulsa as much, but I hear there’s good people there, as well as Oklahoma City and all around Oklahoma. I think all the people are good people and they’re on our side.”
