Collison on the Thunder playing so well early in the season: “It's not seen as a negative for us to be playing well early. I think we're happy to be playing well. But we know if we don't play well tomorrow, then all of the sudden we're not playing well anymore. So it's just (concentrating on) the next one. We've got to keep going to the next one.”
