Thunder avoids second let-down

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. —

NOTES: Brooks got his first technical foul of the season for arguing a foul called against Collison in the third quarter. ... The Thunder had the same starting lineup for the 59th straight game, plus another 20 in last year's playoffs. No other NBA team has had the same starting five in every game this season. "There's no question health is such a good thing to have in this league, and we've had good fortune the last so many years," Brooks said. "Hopefully that continues. You want your best players healthy. You want your entire team healthy." ... Brooks, who grew up in northern California and served as an assistant coach in Sacramento and Seattle, side-stepped a question about his thoughts on the potential for the Kings to be sold to Seattle investors. "My reaction is I'm just focused on the group that I have, the game that we have tonight. I can't focus on any other thing other than that," he said.
