Hunter, the disgruntled former NBA Players Union Chief, has now lost all of his actions against Fisher and Jamie Wior, Hunter's former business manager.

Hunter had alleged that Fisher and Wior conspired, during the 2011 lockout, to have Hunter removed from his position.

STAT OF THE NIGHT

Including playoffs, the Thunder has won nine out of the past 11 games against the Spurs.

QUOTABLE

In pregame, Popovich was complimentary of Kevin Durant, but after the third Durant-related question, this one asking about his competitive drive, Popovich said this: “I just respect his game very much. (But) I'm not going to talk about all the psycho babble stuff you guys want to talk about. You can do that on your own.”

UP NEXT

After a rough stretch against a variety of Western Conference contenders, the Thunder get a scheduling reprieve. Well, not from a travel standpoint, but from a competition standpoint. OKC heads to the East Coast for a Friday night game against the 15-29 Boston Celtics and a Saturday night game against the 13-28 Philadelphia 76ers. Both games start at 6:30.

66ERS MAKE MOVES

The Thunder's NBA D-League affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers, made a couple of moves Wednesday. The 66ers acquired guard Mustafa Shakur and a third-round draft pick in transactions with the Erie BayHawks and Canton Charge. Shakur played for Tulsa during the 2009-10 season, when he was selected as an NBA D-League All-Star. The 66ers sent guard Ben Uzoh to Canton for the third-round draft pick.
