Thunder at 4 p.m.: Season tips-off tonight in San Antonio

NORMAN — Oklahoma City tips-off its season at 8:30 p.m. tonight with a trip to San Antonio to take on the Spurs (1-0). The last time the two teams met, after falling behind 0-2 the Thunder (0-0) won four straight games in the Western Conference Finals to propel themselves to the NBA Finals.

It will also be the first game in the post-James Harden era. With the former Thunder guard putting up 37 points and 12 assists in the Houston debut Wednesday, it will increase the pressure on Kevin Martin, who was part of the Harden trade.

The trade also will give a chance for Eric Maynor to shine. He makes his regular season return since having his season ended last year with an injury. The veteran guard beat out second year pro Reggie Jackson  for the back-up point guard spot.
