Just about to get started here.
Mike Breen and Hubie Brown are calling this game, so I'm happy.
Man, I want to go to a game in Oklahoma City one of these days.
DeAndre Jordan in the post against Perkins, he misses a lefty hook on the first possession.
Westbrook drives past Paul on the right side but his layup is blocked by Jordan. Westbrook gets the board, Perk tries to make a post move but Paul gets a steal.
Willie Green airballs a jumper from the left corner in transition.
Durant turns it over, Clips get a fast break and Barnes lays it in. Clippers on the board first.
OKC has a sort of empty possession, but Westbrook bails them out with a three in Chris Paul's face.
OKC forces a turnover in the backcourt, Ibaka misses a long two.
Griffin drives left against Durant, then turns around for a short righty hook shot. Money.
Durant comes off a Perkins screen and misses a catch and shoot jumper. Griffin gets the board.
Barnes uses a Griffin screen, misses a jumper off the dribble on the left side from about 18 feet.
Ibaka with a spin move against Barnes and he makes a short jumper on the left side.
Griffin in the post against Ibaka, he faces him up and banks in a jumper.
Clips up 6-5, about nine minutes to go in the first quarter.
Ibaka makes a jumper from 18, straightaway.
Griffin with a post move, gets his shot blocked by Perkins. Paul then misses a jumper, out of bounds, Thunder ball.
Durant takes Barnes off the dribble but misses the dunk. He's fouled, though. Two shots coming up, 8:20 left in the first quarter.
I'm not sure that was the best call but it was a foul on Griffin.
Durant splits the free throws. Thunder up 8-6.
Barnes has to take a deeeep three late in the shot clock off a pass from Paul, no good.
Westbrook finds an open Sefolosha for a three on the right wing in transition, it's money.
Thabo's shooting 54% from three this year. Nuts.
OKC up 11-6, crowd getting into it now.
Foul on the perimeter, with Perk trying to deny Griffin the ball in the high post.
7:28 left in the first quarter.
Barnes drives and gets his shot sent back by Ibaka. Clippers recover, Barnes takes a jump shot and AGAIN Ibaka blocks it.
He is by far the best shot blocker in the NBA.
Barnes pokes the ball away from Durant, Griffin gets an easy, beautiful dunk in transition.
Westbrook drives left against Paul and tries a difficult floater. It goes off the glass and in. Whoa.
