OKC flew to Milwaukee at 9:30 p.m. Sunday for its Monday game against the Bucks. Thanks to a trade that sent shooting guard Monta Ellis from Golden State to Milwaukee, the Thunder will have to go against Ellis for a fourth time this season.
"That's the last person we want to face," Brooks deadpanned of Ellis, who averaged 24.0 points against the Thunder while with the Warriors this season, which included a career-high 48 points on Feb. 7 in Oakland.
Toronto coach Dwane Casey on the Thunder: "They are a great team, believe me. We could play them 10 out of 10 times and the results probably wouldn't be any different."
