’ll have to play a real good defensive game.”

Kevin Ollie, sidelined six weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery, might return tonight. He was sore after practice Friday, though.

"I’m real close,” Ollie said. "I thought I’d be available against Indiana.”

With Eric Maynor now the backup point guard, Brooks said Ollie "is all about winning. We have three point guards that can help us.”

Before tonight’s game, fans can sign a military community covenant designed to visibly demonstrate support at Section 108. A canon and Stryker tank will be displayed on Reno Avenue outside the Ford Center. Discounted tickets are being offered to military personnel in all seating locations. Fans can donate their season tickets by calling (405) 208-HOOP. Members of the military will receive a 20 percent discount Monday at the ThunderShop.

Brooks put the team through a brief one-hour practice Sunday afternoon, concentrating on layups, offensive sets, defensive pick-and-roll coverages and lifting weights. ... A four-game homestand ends Wednesday night against San Antonio.
