Oklahoma City Thunder notebook: Derek Fisher ties Robert Horry for most playoff games in history

These playoffs have been marked by close finishes and upsets. Going into the Thunder-Grizzlies game Saturday night, road teams were 14-11. Going into Sunday games, the only higher-seeded teams leading a series are the Heat and Clippers.

“We’ve talked about that all year,” Brooks said. “NBA players are good. They’re all over the league. NBA teams are good. The series are just great to watch. You didn’t want to get on the bus (Saturday) because you wanted to finish the Dallas-San Antonio game.”


With the Thunder bench struggling in Games 2 and 3, there were some calling for the reappearance of Jeremy Lamb.

But Brooks remained with his regular reserve rotation — and they performed well — not going to Lamb for the third straight game.

“Everybody has to be read,” Brooks said. “He’s definitely on our team, (one of) 13 guys. If I call him, he has to step up and play. I have confidence in all the guys right now. “


Serge Ibaka’s dunk with 6:04 remaining in the second quarter gave the a six-point lead, its biggest since Game 1. OKC’s biggest lead in Game 2 was two, in Game 3 was four.


Game 5 is in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Tip is at 8 p.m. CT.
