The Thunder will wrap up the 2012-13 season in the very best way possible: With a completely meaningless game. Having locked up 60 wins and the West’s top seed, the Thunder don’t have anything to play for tonight, other than pride. Which is great.
Sitting for OKC is Kevin Durant, Nick Collison, Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Martin and Derek Fisher. Starting: Russell Westbrook, Thabo Sefolosha, Perry Jones III, Serge Ibaka and Hasheem Thabeet. And obviously we should see big minutes from Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb, which is exciting.
Milwaukee coming in: Lost five straight, including their last game against Denver on Monday.
Three Big Things
1. Who cares. I don’t know how much Lamb is going to play, but I’m hoping for at least 30 minutes. His season-high is just 12 minutes, so he should definitely top that tonight. I’m curious to see what he can do. Hopefully he sticks to his game and doesn’t try and overdue things to make a statement or something.
2. Who cares. PJIII. I fully expect a ridiculous alley-oop or dunk from him tonight. I will be disappointed if he doesn’t produce.
3. Who cares. You think Ronnie Brewer catches rim tonight vote yes or no.
Tip at 7:00 CT. Go Last One.
