The Thunder's last home game of the regular season will be the biggest they've played...a win over Houston could keep them on track to finish as high as 5th in the western conference standings, a loss could very well drop them to 8th. It's huge for Houston too, a win by the Rockets could boost them to 2nd place...a loss could drop them to 4th. The Rockets have won 6 straight and 20 of their last 23...the Thunder have won 3 straight and are coming off a win in Minnesota that saw Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Dennis Schroder all score more than 20pts. We hear from Billy Donovan, Russell Westbrook and Dennis Schroder.
Also in sports, Texas Tech rallies back against Virginia but loses a thriller in overtime. Head coach Chris Beard tells us about his last message to his team. Also OU's Lon Kruger says he's not going anywhere and plans to finish his coaching career with the Sooners. And Clayton Kershaw makes another minor league rehab start tonight, this time in Tulsa for the Drillers.
It's Masters Week and former OSU star Rickie Fowler spoke with reporters yesterday. Fowler again will be one of the favorites.
Did you see this? OSU Coach Mike Gundy not only praising receivers coach Kasey Dunn for his coaching abilities but his workout habits too.
And back to the Thunder...remember tonight's game will be a late one...Tipoff at 8:40 on TNT and Fox Sports Oklahoma.
