“No, no, no,” Brooks said, shaking his head.

BROOKS STAYS UP FOR WARRIORS-SPURS

Thunder coach Scott Brooks couldn't get away from basketball Monday night.

Brooks said he watched both playoff games, staying up late to watch the Spurs come back to beat Golden State in double overtime.

“It was a great game, a great comeback,” Brooks said. “I love watching it. I love following it. I love reading boxscores ...

“My wife isn't overly thrilled about it, as we all know, but I can't get away.”

Brooks said he watched the game as a coach, a scout and a fan.

THABEET SEES SERIOUS TIME

Before the series began, Scott Brooks said he expected Hasheem Thabeet to play a role in the series after seeing just mop-up minutes in Game 1 of the series against Houston before sitting for the series' final five games.

After playing 3:37 in the opener against Memphis, Thabeet was on the floor much more in Game 2.

Thabeet entered in the first quarter for Kendrick Perkins, then saw extended time in the third and fourth as Perkins and Serge Ibaka got in foul trouble.

Thabeet was solid during his time on the floor, with three rebounds and strong defensive play while two of the Thunder's best defenders were often forced to the bench.

Thabeet had a plus-2 plus/minus in more than 12 minutes on the floor.
