OKLAHOMA CITY — If the 46 points the Thunder allowed in the third quarter can be glossed over as something other than the primary takeaway from Oklahoma City’s final preseason game, a 124-119 loss to Memphis Wednesday night inside Chesapeake Energy Arena, then Devon Hall can be.

It was a bit of déjá vu in Lubbock, Texas, the last time Oklahoma State stepped onto the field, bringing back memories of the 2018 season when the Cowboys would follow up good outings against ranked opponents by falling flat on their faces against more mediocre opponents.

OKLAHOMA CITY — When both games are preseason games and one is against the New Zealand Breakers, who are in NBL and not the NBA, do two games denote a trend?

TULSA — Dallas’ two best players, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, were both being rested by coach Rick Carlisle, surely making it easier for Oklahoma City to gain its 119-104 preseason opening victory inside BOK Center Tuesday night.

While there is work to be done following Oklahoma State’s loss to Texas Tech and in preparation for a presently undefeated Baylor team on Oct. 19, Cowboy coach Mike Gundy has scaled things back during OSU’s open week.

TULSA — Through Thunder training camp, much discussed topics have included Chris Paul, the squad’s lone superstar, ball movement as a big part of the offense, how coach Billy Donovan might manage three different point guards and the back-on-the-court-again Andre Roberson.

Oklahoma’s defensive failures against Texas last season were encapsulated on a third-and-21 play, starting when Longhorn receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey caught a pass at the line of scrimmage.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Perhaps Andre Roberson will see game action this preseason, but not tonight when the Thunder meet Dallas at 7 p.m. inside Tulsa’s BOK Center.

OKLAHOMA CITY — It’s the first of a quartet of preseason games afforded the Thunder when they meet the Dallas Mavericks at 7 tonight inside Tulsa’s BOK Center. And when Oklahoma City has the ball, there are a couple of things to look for, independent of who’s on the floor.

EDMOND — The Thunder broke itself in half for Sunday’s Blue and White Scrimmage and in so doing put Chris Paul, Steven Adams and Danilo Gallinari on the same team, all but assuring the White squad would emerge victorious 76-60.

EDMOND — It’s about made shots and grabbed rebounds and ball movement, defense and efficiency, too, but it is also about the talk for the Oklahoma City Thunder this season and it was on full display at the organization’s annual Blue and White scrimmage, which commenced Sunday at the Oklahoma City Blue’s training facility.
