Casey: “I look back at Seattle when they got Durant, it took them how many years to grow in OKC. (Phoenix), look at how long it took them to grow. You may have some missteps along the way … but it can be done.” Said the key for Detroit is the foundation. – 7:34 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mark Daigneault says SGA didn’t feel concussion symptoms until after a nap today.
He also clearly wasn’t happy with the “common” fouls from the Rockets:
“Those were hard fouls that concussed him. He’s out tonight as a result of those plays directly.” – 6:50 PM

Kyle Anderson and Ziaire Williams are OUT tonight for the @Memphis Grizzlies vs Thunder. Coach Jenkins said they want to give them the benefit of a couple days. – 6:25 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ziaire Williams and Kyle Anderson are out tonight.
Ja Morant is doing individual work but not 5-on-5 yet. His timeline hasn’t changed. – 6:23 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
With SGA out, Taylor Jenkins said they’re an ultra competitive team with good ball movement and frequent PNR play. They got interchangeable big men and shoot a lot of 3’s – 6:21 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins says the timeline with Ja Morant hasn’t changed, but he’s responded really well to rehab, and they’ve been monitoring his knee in response to the work prior to ramping it up – 6:20 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Ziaire Williams (knee soreness) and Kyle Anderson (back soreness) are out for tonight’s game, per Taylor Jenkins. Doesn’t see it as long-term – 6:19 PM

Jae’Sean Tate shines in OKC, and other role players contribute to Rockets’ first road victory; win streak continues

Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
Not allowing fast-break points will be a key for OKC against Memphis as the team looks to put together a solid, 48-minute game.

Still no Josh Giddey.

Will the Thunder starting point guard be Ty Jerome or… Tre Mann? pic.twitter.com/hucK51OUIc5:25 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Just two incorrect calls in the last two minutes of Rockets-Thunder but neither mattered. Eric Gordon got away with an offensive foul but turned the ball over moments later. OKC got away with a five-second violation but missed the shot that followed. – 5:17 PM
