Also representing the West will be Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx and the Seattle Storm's Tina Thompson, plus former NBA players Sam Cassell and Robert Horry, who played a combined 31 seasons in the league and won 10 NBA championships. Cassell and Horry were teammates on a Houston Rockets team that won back-to-back titles in 1994-95.
Representing the Eastern Conference are Miami's Chris Bosh and Brooklyn's Brook Lopez, Chicago's Swin Cash and Indiana's Tamika Catchings of the WNBA and former players Muggsy Bogues and Dominique Wilkins.
With three lopsided victories against Dallas, Golden State and Phoenix, Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Kendrick Perkins went the entire week without playing a single second in the fourth quarter. … OKC has now won seven straight at home and is 23-3 at The Peake this season. Its last loss was Jan. 2 against Brooklyn. … The Thunder is now: 11-1 on Fridays; 18-0 when it shoots 50-plus percent from the field; 17-1 when five-plus players score in double-figures; 12-1 with 10 or more blocks; 16-3 with 10 or more steals; 26-6 against Western Conference teams.
Beasley on whether Friday's loss felt worse than normal: “Every loss is disheartening, but by that many points, that's embarrassing … that adds a little more. That (where OKC is) is where we want to be in the near future.”
