A great beginning to the evening honoring Mr. Thunder, Nick Collison. Here is the tribute video put together by the team and shown on the arena video board and on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
From the Thunder here is a good shot of the new banner now hanging up in the rafters at The Peake.
During the ceremony Nick Collison praised his teammates through the years, Thunder staff and management and of course the fans.
Then the game began and the fun was over. OKC got off to a slow start, trailed by as many as 19, rallied to send the game into overtime but the Raptors quickly ended all hope, shutting out the Thunder for the first 4 minutes of OT.
The 123-114 loss is the 4th straight game going into the loss column and now since the All-Star Break the Thunder are just 5-10. If that's not bad enough they get to play the Raptors again tomorrow night, this time in Toronto.
