Mark Daigneault was non-committal when asked if Jalen Williams is a permanent starter: β€œWe’re doing what we think is best in this period of time. He’s played well and played himself into the role that he’s in.” – 6:02 PM

The Thunder continues its stint out east to take on an aggressive Sixers squad. OKC looks to apply lessons-learned, including starting the contest off strong.

Going through old quotes and came across this self-aware nugget from Montrezl Harrell: β€œI could go home and have to edit a lot of film like ya’ll. There’s no telling how long ya’ll gonna be up editing these films. I get to go home, ice and sit down and watch a little TV.” – 1:13 PM
