Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-03-28
--G Earl Watson hasn't played in the last seven games, including Friday at Toronto. Thunder coach Scott Brooks has said the demotion of the early-season starter isn't personal.

"I wanted to give Chucky (Atkins) a chance to see what he has and see what kind of mix he will bring to our team," Brooks said. "We've done some good things with him on the court."

Watson is set to earn $6.6 million next season, the highest on the team. Oklahoma City is likely looking for cheaper alternative to back up Russell Westbrook.

"Basketball-wise, you could say we're a young team trying to figure out who we can move forward with as an organization," Watson said. "Business-wise, it could be a different reason, a completely different angle."

--Oklahoma City has lost six of its past eight games, giving up 100.9 points during that span. The last two setbacks -- Lakers and Raptors -- were by a total of 34 points. Before the recent eight-game stretch, the Thunders held opponents to 90.3 points over the previous six games. Not surprisingly, they went 5-1.

-- Oklahoma City is 5-34 under Scott Brooks when allowing at least 100 points, and 14-6 when holding opponents to less than 100.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We feel like we didn't ever make a push. We didn't string together enough stops. It was a disappointing loss for us. We've got to be able to stop what we're doing here and change how we're playing." -- F Nick Collison, after getting routed Friday at Toronto.
