Following All-Star Weekend (Feb. 15-17), the NBA will require all teams to perform hand-wand searches of fans at every home game.

Before the break, NBA teams are required to do hand-wand searches at 50 percent of home games.

Security at Chesapeake Energy Arena has been doing hand-wand searches at every Thunder home game this season and will simply continue to do so.

Chesapeake Arena general manager Gary Desjardins said there have been no problems getting fans through security in time for the opening tip and is confident this will continue after All-Star break because there will be no procedural changes.

Arena doors open 90 minutes before tipoff.

RECORD NIGHT

Several Thunder records were set in Monday night's 114-69 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats at The Peake. Many more likely would have been shattered had coach Scott Brooks not removed his starters with 6:58 remaining in the third quarter.

*The 45-point victory was the largest in the Thunder era.

*The 69 points allowed was the fewest in the Thunder era.

*The 40-point halftime lead (64-24) was the largest in the OKC era and second-largest all-time for the franchise all-time (44-point halftime lead at Boston on Nov. 23, 1967).

*The last NBA team to lead by 40 or more points at halftime was Golden State against Sacramento (88-41 on Nov. 2, 1991).

*The 24 points allowed at halftime are the fewest in the Thunder era and tied for the second-lowest in all-time franchise history (a 47-20 lead against New Orleans on Jan. 4, 1975).
