Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks announced that Nick Collison would start in place of the injured Serge Ibaka on Sunday night. The Thunder will play the suddenly red-hot Portland Trail Blazers and won't have their best shot-blocker and big man scorer. Fortunately for OKC, they will still have Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. I heard those guys are pretty good. The Thunder and Blazers will tip off at 9:00 PM at the Rose Garden.
