Thabeet provides good minutes

For only the fifth time since the start of 2014, Hasheem Thabeet got on the court for the Thunder.

But for the first time this season, Thabeet played a crucial role.

In 17 solid minutes against the Grizzlies, Thabeet had two points, four rebounds and a block. He was one of the main reasons Memphis star Zach Randolph had a rough 5-of-14 shooting night.

After the game, Kevin Durant beelined toward Thabeet and acknowledged the needed performance: “Way to play, boy,” he told Thabeet.

Westbrook adds another endorsement

Despite missing a chunk of court time over the past year, Russell Westbrook continues to expand his brand. In mid-February, Subway announced a partnership with the Thunder star. And this past Thursday, Westbrook announced, via Twitter, he is the latest endorser for Zenith watches.

“Honored to be working with Zenith, best watches in the business!” his tweet read.

Stat of the night

Derek Fisher hit multiple 3-pointers in eight of the Thunder’s 11 games in February. Overall in the month, Fisher went 22-of-45 (48 percent) from deep.

Up next

The Thunder continues a six-game homestand on Sunday night against the Charlotte Bobcats. Tip is at 6 p.m. Charlotte has won four of its last five, the only loss coming in San Antonio on Friday.
