“We just want to play,” Durant said. “It really don't matter who we play. It's going to be tough no matter who it is. In the playoffs, every team is good. So it really doesn't matter. We just got to come out there and be us.”


Brooks on the scoring race between Durant and Bryant: “I think they should just play a 12-minute, one-on-one game full court. Winner takes it all. That'd be pretty cool. It'd get good ratings.”


The Thunder allowed 67 total rebounds to the Lakers... Among the celebrities in the crowd Sunday were actors Denzel Washington, Jack Nicholson, Ashton Kutcher, Andy Garcia and Jerry Ferrarra, as well as movie director Steven Spielberg.


The Thunder returns to Chesapeake Energy Arena after a five-game road trip to close out the regular season with a two-game home stand. Oklahoma City will play Sacramento on Tuesday before closing the regular season against Denver on Wednesday. Tip-off for the Kings game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
