Thunder guard Derek Fisher, in his final season in the NBA, continues to blog away on his personal website, about both his teammates and his favorite memories.

In a recent post, Fisher praised the hard work of Jackson, noting his continued improvements.

“The level he's playing at now — and the consistency with which he's playing — I can honestly say that I didn't see it coming,” Fisher wrote of Jackson.

“What he's done has been remarkable. He's really done it the old fashioned way of just getting better a little bit each day. It seems like it happened fast, but it's the years of work that he's put in already that are leading to these great moments he's having now.”

COLD ARENA

Just hours before the Thunder and Sixers tipped off, the Philadelphia Flyers hosted an NHL game in Wells Fargo Arena.

Workers did a great job transitioning the ice to a basketball court, but some of the cold air lingered, making for a pretty chilly in-game environment.

STAT OF THE NIGHT

On Saturday night, Durant became the fifth player since 1985 to have at least 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists on fewer than 20 shots. The others are Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Derrick Coleman and Reggie Theus.

UP NEXT

 The Thunder returns home briefly, facing the Hawks in OKC on Monday night, before heading back out on the road for an intriguing three-game East Coast trip against Miami, Brooklyn and Washington.
