The Thunder received a Stevie Award, one of the most prestigious business honors, last week in Miami Beach, Fla. for its front-line customer service team. The Thunder was the only pro sports organization honored.

Competing with international organizations and companies, other winners included Kohl’s Department stores, DHL Exppress, Marriott International, Sherwin-Williams, Royal Caribbean and AT&T Business Direct.

The award’s moniker is taken from the name "Stephen,” derived from the Greek for "crowned.”

The Thunder also is a finalist for a SAMMY Award (Sales Advertising Marketing Management Idea of the Year), which honors sports organizations that have demonstrated creativity. Other 2010 SAMMY finalists include: The Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Sounders and Toronto Maple Leafs.

BRIEFLY

With 1.8 seconds remaining in the first half, Krstic hit his first 3-pointer of the season and just the second of his career. It gave the Thunder a 61-47 lead at the half.
