OKLAHOMA CITY, May 10, 2012 - The Oklahoma City Thunder announced today two preseason games scheduled for October. The team will host the Phoenix Suns at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK, on Oct. 19. Later that month, on Oct. 24, the Thunder will play the Dallas Mavericks at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, KS.
This will be the fourth time the Thunder has visited the BOK Center for a preseason game. It will be the team’s first visit to Wichita for a game.
The condensed schedule this season prevented NBA teams from having a true preseason, but the Thunder is using this week-long stretch without a game as its own version of training camp.
Head Coach Scott Brooks’ club did more scrimmaging today, including three games of five-on-five with eight minute quarters and some four-on-four games as well. This time between the first and second rounds has been a great opportunity for Thunder players to work on both growing individually and as a team moving forward.
