> 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 dunk (7:43 in third quarter): Durant, smooth as silk along the left baseline.

First 20-point deficit (63-43 at 7:23 in third quarter): There figures to be plenty more of these, too.

First YMCA timeout dance (7:44 in fourth quarter): Needs work, people. Lots of work.

First 3-pointer (5:11 in fourth quarter): On right wing from Russell Westbrook. Pulled Thunder to within 90-79.

First mascot appearance: Never happened and won't happen for several months until the team comes up with one.

First loss (9:33 p.m.): Bucks 98, Thunder 87.
