Oklahoma City arrives in Portland to take on the Trail Blazers tonight. OKC is led by Russell Westbrook, who is closing in becoming on the first player to average a triple-double since Oscar Robertson. They’re also playoff-bound, while the Blazers are falling further off the pace.

Injuries: Festus Ezeli is likely done for the season. Evan Turner is getting his cast off soon, but is still out. And Ed Davis is done for the season to get surgery on his torn labrum. For OKC, Victor Oladipo didn’t make the trip.

And now a musical interlude from “Oklahoma City based” Presidents of the United States of America. They unexpectedly burst onto the mid ‘90s alternative scene, and disappeared just as quickly. Here’s Lump.

It should probably be a rule that, if Weird Al Yankovic parodies a song, it should be posted. Here’s “Gump”.

Lastly, did you know what happened to PotUSA? Well, the band stayed together for a long time, mostly playing local shows, before breaking up recently. Why? Well according to Wikipedia, the members were "old people now". Fair enough. But that didn’t stop lead singer Chris Ballew from finding success in a related field: Children’s music. Here’s one of his songs as the leader of Caspar Babypants:
