“I like his activity,” Brooks said of Jones. “They went small, they were playing Paul Pierce at the four. Probably, we wouldn't see that lineup in an NBA game, but they had to mix and match because of all their injuries. And it paid off for them.”

 STAT OF THE GAME

The Thunder blew a 16-point lead for the second straight game.

UP NEXT

 The Thunder travels to Minnesota to face the Timberwolves at 7 p.m. Saturday, where OKC got blown out, 100-81, earlier this season. The Thunder has won seven straight road games.

66ERS LOSE AGAIN

The game featured 14 lead changes and 14 ties, but the Maine Red Claws led when it counted most.

Marshon Brooks, on assignment from the Boston Celtics, scored 26 points to lead Maine past the Tulsa 66ers 105-96 on Thursday night in a D-League game in Portland.

Isaiah Wilkerson had a career-high 23 points to complement six rebounds and five assists for Tulsa.

Tulsa fell to 2-13. Maine moved to 7-6.

The 66ers next play Friday night at Springfield, Mass.
