With games almost every other night in the NBA, time management is critical in order to get the team ready to play hard from the opening tip each night.

After a stretch of 17 games in the month of November, the Thunder is going into only its sixth game in the month of December tonight against the Sacramento Kings. With that extra practice time so far through the first half of the month, Head Coach Scott Brooks has been able to work with team leaders like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook to keep the entire team sharp.

OKLAHOMA CITY, December 14, 2012 – The Oklahoma City Thunder has assigned guard Jeremy Lamb and center Daniel Orton to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti.

Lamb has appeared in eight games this season with Oklahoma City averaging 2.1 points in 4.3 minutes.

Orton has seen action in one game for the Thunder, scoring two points in two minutes versus Cleveland on Nov. 11th.

Both will be in uniform tonight when the Tulsa 66ers take on the Jam in Bakersfield.
