Oklahoma City Thunder notebook: Third time nearly a charm for Hornets

The Thunder's 92-88 survival mission against New Orleans on Wednesday night looked nothing like its two previous meetings against the Hornets on the road this season.

FANS vs. WESTBROOK

Fans of Russell Westbrook, Jason Terry, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan and PK Subban have an opportunity to reserve a spot to play against them in Football Connect, a bingo-style mobile app game, during live NFL games on Sunday and Monday by playing Football Connect during Thursday's NFL game between the Bengals and Eagles.

Not only will participants be playing against these pro athletes, they will be able to chat during the game. In addition, if any athlete wins in their assigned room, $5,000 will be donated to the charity of their choice.

Westbrook will be playing in the Steelers vs. Cowboys room on Sunday at 3:25 p.m.

To qualify for the chance to compete against the stars, players have to win at least 5,000 tokens in Football Connect or be lucky enough to win one of 100 random “Fast Pass” tiles that will appear randomly throughout the contest. The top three winners from all five game rooms will be eligible for prizes.

QUOTABLE

New Orleans rookie guard Brian Roberts on the Thunder's fourth-quarter comeback: “That's what a championship caliber team does, they go on runs, especially at home. We braced ourselves for it. We talked about it at halftime, but we just came up a little bit short tonight. … That fourth quarter, giving up 34 points, that's tough. With a team like that, you can't do that.”
