“That event is something I haven't done before,” Durant said. “It'll be cool, only take a couple minutes anyway.”


The dysfunctional Knicks descended upon Oklahoma City on Sunday afternoon, and they brought a coaching controversy with them.

Recent reports out of New York say that Mike Woodson is expecting to be fired after the All-Star break.

Woodson denied that pregame, but did admit the lingering rumors and his unknown status might affect his team.

“They know it's dangling,” Woodson said of his team. “My theme to our players is Woodson is a big boy. He's been around the block a few times. It's a part of the business, if it happens. It's not about me, it's never been about me.”


Durant has compiled at least 25 points and at least four assists in 18 straight games. That's the longest streak in the NBA the past 40 years, per Elias.


At 41-12, the Thunder has stretched its lead in the Western Conference to three games over the Spurs and four games over the Blazers


The Thunder heads out on the road to complete the first half, with a 9 p.m. game in Portland on Tuesday and 9:30 p.m. game Thursday at Los Angeles (Lakers) before next weekend's All-Star break.
