The Thunder tonight faces Phoenix point guard Steve Nash, who failed to be named to his sixth All-Star Game.

Despite statistics eerily similar to his MVP seasons of 2004-05 and 2005-06, and even though he has his highest scoring average in five seasons, Nash predicted his chances of being chosen as a reserve Thursday were “not good.”
