OKC Morning Loud Links: A Second Night in Cali

New, comments

The Thunder are back in action tonight against the Sacramento Kings, after thankfully getting an off-night to recuperate. Hopefully the team spent their down-time mentally preparing for yet another back-to-back, but at the same time not look past tonight's game against the struggling Kings.

"We understand that we're a good team and that we're getting better...But I don't go home and celebrate with my wife after every win." - Scott Brooks

Possibly related - Mrs. Brooks would like to go out to a reasonably priced dinner if the Thunder beat the Jazz next Tuesday.

Chris Paul - Killer at Heart | ESPN

Here is a great look at the place Chris Paul has in the game and how highly he is esteemed by his peers. Off the court he's everybody's big brother, but on the court he's as nasty as they come. I love both facets.

Underappreciated Second Units | Behind the Basket

A year ago the Thunder 2nd unit would have made this list, but the loss of Eric Maynor set the team back a bit. However, I think they are really starting to come together now. The 2nd unit really shone in the last game, when the Thunder bench guys helped turn a six point deficit into a halftime lead.

Jeremy Lin Sleeps on His Brother's Couch | Ball Don't Lie

Lin-sanity, or whatever you want to call it, is sweeping the nation. I think one of the reasons why is that, unlike a sport like football, talent is not supposed to fall through the cracks in the NBA, so it is both amazing and refreshing when a player whom nobody thought was worth while a year ago is suddenly the toast of the biggest basketball city in the world.
