ns wanting to attend either game are advised to show up early. The final 200 tickets for tonight’s game go on sale at 6 p.m. Team officials also will sell 75 pairs of tickets (150 total) on game day both tonight and Sunday. Another 25 pairs (50 tickets) will be given away in a drawing.

DEFENSIVE CHALLENGE
After moving to power forward when Brooks was named interim coach, Green will be guarding Bosh, who he faced last summer in Las Vegas when Green and Kevin Durant were on a practice team that prepared Team USA for the Olympics.

"It’s fun to play against guys who are All-Star caliber,” Green said. "It brings out the best in you. I’m going to make him work (to get good shots). But it’s going to be a tough challenge. He’s one of the top players in the league.”

BRIEFLY
Brooks said Thursday’s practice was good. Areas of emphasis were post-up defense and pick-and-roll defense. ... Wilcox left at the end of practice when his dislocated ring finger was hit during a scrimmage session, but he’s expected to play tonight. ... Rookie point guard Russell Westbrook left practice early for a doctor’s appointment. ... Center Robert Swift (back spasms and sprained ankle) won’t play tonight. Swift did not practice but shot free throws after practice.
