Thunder statement on play-by-play voice Brian Davis' in-game comments

On Saturday, Russell Westbrook and Paul George addressed the comments by Oklahoma City Thunder play-by-play announcer Brian Davis, who said that Westbrook was "out of his cotton-picking mind" during the team's final regular-season game.

He will be replaced by radio play-by-play voice Matt Pinto, rejoining the broadcast crew for Game 2.

With that being said, here's what separates the Jazz from the Thunder and why we'll see Utah advance to the second round after winning in seven games.

The avid sports fan spoke to TMZ about the report, saying that he would take the comments as a compliment, as Davis was likely referring to the point guard's unreal skills on the court.

Jay Rodriguez was the unlikely man to the seal the championship for City with his 74th-minute goal at Old Trafford . West Brom had dropped 8 of the past nine matches and then last won on January 1-3.

"We think obviously the use of that term was offensive and inappropriate, and I expressed that to Brian last night", Mahoney said Thursday. That's for the front office and him to discuss. "Brian assures me that it was not meant in any derogatory way, and he apologizes. Nonetheless, he's been told the use of that term in any manner is unacceptable".

The team announced the suspension on Friday. "While unintentional, I understand and acknowledge the gravity of the situation", he said.

"I offer my honest apology and realize that, while I committed a lapse in judgement, such mistakes come with consequences. This is an appropriate effect for my actions", Davis concluded.

Take this into consideration: With the Thunder and Jazz finishing with identical 48-34 records this season, should it be really leaning in the favor of OKC knowing that it's got three superstars and was expected to be even better than where it fell at fourth in the conference?
