Asked about the potential atmosphere in Game 1, OKC coach Scott Brooks said, “I think our atmosphere is the best in the league. We've got great fans. Our building is always good, no matter what night of the week, no matter who we play. Playing in the second round obviously there's going to be maybe a little more excitement.
“Really, we're focusing on both teams. Not one time have I talked about the Lakers or the Nuggets to our guys, because we don't know. We don't want to waste time, waste their energy focusing on a team we might not even play.”
