Brooks, jokingly, when asked about the Kendrick Perkins' halfcourt buzzer-beating heave on Sunday night that rattled in and out: “It looked good. That was a play we worked on actually.”
DURANT NAMED PLAYER OF THE WEEK
For the third time this season, Durant has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week.
And for the league, it was an easy choice.
In four games, Durant averaged a remarkable 39.3 points, 6.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds. The Thunder went 3-1.
COX RESOLVES ISSUE WITH COMMERCIALS
Fox Sports Oklahoma's telecast of Sunday night's Sacramento Kings-Thunder game on Cox Communication was marred by commercials running into the game telecast. The problem didn't occur on the FSOK telecast carried by other providers. A Thunder official said the team was informed Monday by FSOK and Cox that the problem was a software issue, which since has been rectified.
BARTHOLOMEW HONORED BY D-LEAGUE
Tulsa 66ers forward Rodney Bartholomew was named NBA Developmental League Performer of the Week. The 6-foot-8, 235-pounder scored a combined 64 points and 32 rebounds to help previously struggling Tulsa to wins over Bakersfield (Calif.) and Los Angeles. Bartholomew was the first player in 66ers history to record 30 or more points and 15 or more rebounds in back-to-back games.
The 66ers are the affiliate of the Thunder.
