OKC reserve guard James Harden went an uncharacteristic 6 for 9 from the free-throw line against the Spurs and saw his consecutive free-throw streak end at 47. Harden missed for the first time since his first two attempts at Memphis on Dec. 28, which was seven games ago. … Thunder reserve point guard Royal Ivey made his season debut with 6:10 left in the fourth quarter. … Former Oklahoma State standout James Anderson, who was averaging 20-plus minutes earlier in the season, had played just 10 total minutes in the two previous games before Sunday. He entered for the first time with 5:17 left in the third quarter, never left and finished with four points and three rebounds.


The Thunder will not practice Monday, but the team has a travel day and will fly charter to Memphis at 2:45 p.m. OKC plays its final game of the season at FedExForum at 7 p.m. Tuesday. That's followed by a 7 p.m. game Wednesday at New Orleans, wrapping up five games in six nights.


“This whole season now is for Eric. It's a tough loss. We were all sad. We spent some time with him last night at his house after we got back just to give him comfort and show how much we care.” – Harden on Maynor

Sunday's box score: Thunder 108, Spurs 96
