There will be no Sunday practice for the Thunder, who instead will depart for Boston at 11 a.m. and play the Celtics at 7 p.m. Monday on Martin Luther King Day on TNT. OKC's game Wednesday at Washington starts at 6 p.m. and its Saturday game at New Jersey starts at 7 p.m.
NO REST FOR KNICKS
While the Thunder had an off day on Thursday and a travel day on Sunday, the Knicks' practice schedule has been brutal while trying to fix whatever's wrong.
The Knicks won at home against Philadelphia on Wednesday, lost at Memphis on Thursday, practiced Friday afternoon in Oklahoma City, lost to the Thunder on Saturday, flew back to New York immediately after the game and has an afternoon practice scheduled on Sunday in preparation for Monday afternoon's game at home against Orlando.
Under normal circumstances, teams do not practice after back-to-back games and rest after playing three games in four nights.
Thunder rookie guard Reggie Jackson left the game with 1:36 remaining and his right knee was packed in ice inside the locker room afterward. Officially, Jackson has a knee contusion and is listed day-to-day. "It's nothing serious at all," Jackson said. … OKC's 70 points at the half were the most since scoring 71 against Memphis on April 4, 2010. The Thunder's 23-point halftime lead was the largest at intermission this season, as was its 31-point lead overall. … Seated in the front row next to Kevin Durant's family and friends was Oklahoma co-defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, who received a loud ovation when shown on the scoreboard screen with 5:33 left in the game. … OKC's current six-game winning streak ties its longest streak from last season and the 11-2 start is the franchise's best since the 2004-05 season.
"They (the Thunder) are good athletically. They were fresh and they gave it to us." – New York coach Mike D'Antoni
