Thunder forward Nick Collison has now drawn six offensive fouls, which is tied for second in the league behind Milwaukee's Mike Dunleavy with seven.

Collison nearly had a perfect night against the Sixers, shooting 5 for 6 from the field and 4 for 4 from the line. He finished with 14 points and five rebounds in 21:17.

TRIPLE-DOUBLE DEBUT

Thunder shooting guard DeAndre Liggins recorded a triple-double as the Developmental League Tulsa 66ers opened their season with an 83-76 victory over the Texas Legends on Friday night at the SpiritBank Event Center in Bixby.

Liggins had 15 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Thunder center Daniel Orton, a former Bishop McGuinness standout, had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Texas is coached by former Oklahoma standout Eduardo Najera.

TIP-INS

Philadelphia entered the contest first in the NBA in points allowed at 90.9 per game and the Thunder scored 85 through the first three quarters. … Dapper-looking Hall of Famer Julius Erving (Dr. J) was in attendance and received a thunderous ovation. … Thunder guards Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb were shown on “kiss cam.” … The Sixers had their three-game home winning streak snapped. … Philadelphia center Andrew Bynum, acquired in a three-way trade with the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic, still has not played this year due to a right bone bruise. There is no timetable for his return and he potentially could miss the entire season.

QUOTABLE

Thunder guard Kevin Martin, who shot a combined 3 for 16 from the field on the two-game road trip: “I think I left my offense back in Oklahoma City. So I'll go back tomorrow morning and get it out of my locker.”
