Thunder reporter Steve McGehee (@SteveMcGehee) is back in Oklahoma City and he'll be at Chesapeake Energy Arena tonight as the Thunder host the Pelicans at 7 p.m. There will be a somber mood around the arena throughout the game due to yesterday's news that Thunder assistant and former Pelicans head coach Monty Williams' wife, Ingrid Williams, died yesterday as a result of a two car crash. Steve will be tweeting updates throughout the night, so keep checking in to assure you don't miss a thing.
