The Thunder opened the preseason with a starting lineup of Earl Watson, Durant, Jeff Green, Chris Wilcox and Nick Collison... Robert Swift, Mo Sene, D.J. White and Joe Smith all sat out because of limited or no practice time throughout the week because of injuries. All four warmed up before the game... Desmond Mason, Damien Wilkins and Johan Petro where the first three substitutions with 4:36 left in the first quarter... Durant scored the Thunder’s first ever basket on a midrange jumper from the top of the key 58 seconds into the game... Matt Pinto will broadcast Thunder games on the radio without a separate color commentator. Craig Humphreys of WWLS will team with Pinto on the broadcast as the studio host.
