Only halfway into a weeklong wait between playoff games, coach Scott Brooks says monotony hasn't set in yet for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Brooks put his team through a demanding practice Wednesday that was loaded up with 5-on-5 scrimmages. His plan was to have his players leave the workout physically spent. Brooks planned a lighter day for Thursday as the Thunder remain in limbo on who they'll face in the Western Conference semifinals. The Los Angeles Lakers lead their series against the Denver Nuggets 3-2, with the winner advancing to face Oklahoma City. The Thunder haven't played since finishing their sweep of Dallas on Saturday, and they won't start the next round until at least Saturday.
