Shot clock violation, ouch!

Harden with some words to Kyle after the Singler elbow, looks like Kyle ignored him pretty good. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 3, 2016

Some say Russ can be hard to coach. Not to me. Just tell him to 'focus on a triple double.' #Thunder 16-0 when No. zero triples. @news9

Harden scores a quick 5pts, Thunder call timeout, leading 69-62 #News9Thunder

Following excellence of KD my press row pal Nick Gallo quips, "it's probably his best sport.' Sporty! @news9

Match made in Hades -- James Harden guarding Andre Roberson. Dueling incompetence. @news9 #thunder #rockets

Re: stories Houston & Harden going hard at KD...Id guess they'd let him name his coach--Brooks? Ollie? Absolutely stunned if KD & H. @news9

Russ appears ok after taking an errant pass to the face. Was down few mins. @news9 #thunder pic.twitter.com/o2MkRK1foT

An errant pass just hit Russ in the head, he's sitting trying to shake off. #News9Thunder

Russ ready in H Town. Gotta sort of salvage the trip. @news9 pic.twitter.com/hm2TOoFFhc

No question today's game is probably OKC's toughest game left in regular season. Houston in must win mode. #News9Thunder

— Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) April 3, 2016

Waiting for my flight to Houston at OKC airport, flight delayed so we have some nervous Sooner fans here rushing to make tipoff.
