Second to last. This is the second to last warmup game before the real deal. By that token alone, I’m excited about this game.
It’s also Kevin Durant’s homecoming and Scott Brooks said KD would play more minutes tonight. Even though Durant went to that “school” down south, I’m happy for him and I’m sure he’s going to really enjoy being back there. He got a little misty when his jersey was raised to the rafters last spring and I’m sure he’ll feel similar emotions tonight while his name gets chanted all night. So good for him.
But this is the back end of a back-to-back, so this should be nice preparation for the team. It’s something you have to deal with all season and while most the team is used to it, getting your legs back after a game the night before isn’t just something you remember how to do.
I get the feeling we’ll see more of the starters tonight and maybe lower rotation guys at the Ford Center Thursday against the Kings. Maybe it’ll be the other way around but regardless, the tuneups are almost over so it’s time to start thinking about playing for real.
Tip at 7:30 CDT. Go Kevin Durant.
