Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-04-01
--The Thunder's front office is looking at the finishing stretch as an opportunity to build some momentum going into the off-season and Summer League. After a disastrous start, Oklahoma City has improved steadily as the season has progressed.

"We want to continue to go out and play well, play the style of basketball we'd like to play and continue to grow as a team," Thunder general manager Sam Presti told the team's Web site. "It's never easy down the stretch. Different stuff happens at the end of the year. We just want continued growth and we're approaching the games the same way every day."

Playoff-caliber teams dominate the remaining schedule. "This is an opportunity for us to get better," Presti added.

--Though there has been improvement, Thunder players admit they've yet to form a true identity. As for what that identity should be, the goal is simple.

"Right now we are working on that and we want to be a defensive-minded team," forward Jeff Green said. "We want to be able to stop people when it counts and we want to be able to make those opportunities count when we get those stops. We are in the process of forming that identity, but we just have to continue to work at it."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "To beat a team like San Antonio, who is a powerhouse in the league, is a great win for us. We just need to finish strong so that we can carry some momentum over to next season." -- Jeff Green, after Tuesday's upset victory over the Spurs.
