Fast And Furious In OKC

By Randy Renner

The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Phoenix Suns both love to run and score in transition and neither team plans to try to slow things down when they play each other this evening. 

"We wanna score in transition," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. 

"We can't slow it down," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek pointed out, "That's just not the way we play." 

The Suns have had problems lately keeping up with the teams they"re playing, they've lost four straight And haven't held anyone under 100 points and over the last couple of games the Suns have been abused down low. 

"We've given up 60 or so points in the paint the last couple of games, so we have to clean that up, a lot of things have contributed to that, not just one or two." 

While the Suns have lost four straight the Thunder are headed the other direction, winning five straight and seven of their last eight. The Thunder also now lead the league in scoring defense, giving up just 94.3 points and they are holding opponets to just 42.1 percent shooting (second worst in the NBA).

So it should be a fun night at The Peake, tipoff at 6 o'clock. Click back here after the game for complete coverage, including reaction from inside the lockerroom.
