First turnover (9:28): Green on a bad bounce pass.

First foul (9:17): Nick Collison against Charlie Villanueva.

First rebound (9:01): Collison at the offensive end.

First booing of game officials (8:10): A charging call against Kevin Durant (the proper call, however).

First defensive rebound (8:17): By Green. Not a good sign when it takes this long to get a defensive rebound.

First timeout (6:22): Not coincidentally, followed seven seconds later by the first Thunder timeout.

First substitution (6:22): Chris Wilcox for Johan Petro.

First steal (6:01): By Earl Watson.

First half-court shot by fan during a timeout (3:29): The guy nearly made it, hitting the left side of the rim.

First home-state product to play (2:48): Former Oklahoma State great Desmond Mason enters and scores 19 seconds later.

First Thunder Girls sighting (between first and second quarters): Black trench coats and white, high-heeled, knee-high boots.

First dunk at Thunder basket (2:04 in second quarter): Unfortunately, it came during a timeout by the Thunder Dunk Team using a mini-tramp.

First points scored by Durant (11:13 in third quarter): He missed his first four field-goal attempts in a scoreless first half.
