EXTENDED HOMESTAND

A pretty lengthy home stretch awaits the Thunder coming out of the All-Star break.

Starting with the Heat on Thursday, the Thunder plays its next six games in OKC, stretching into early March. It includes games with the Clippers, Grizzlies, Cavaliers, Bobcats and Sixers.

OKC's next road game comes on March 6 in Phoenix, three full weeks after its last road game in Los Angeles.

QUOTABLE

After backtracking on his statements to Grantland, which included a proclamation that Russell Westbrook would play on Thursday and that “The Servant” is his preferred nickname, Durant shrugged a little and said, “Let's act like I never did that interview.”

THUNDER RECALL ANDRE ROBERSON

In his latest D-League stint, Andre Roberson spent only a day with the Tulsa 66ers.

But what a successful one it was.

In the 66ers win on Tuesday night, Roberson had 19 points, 11 rebounds, five steals and two assists.

The Thunder recalled him on Wednesday afternoon.
