Bixby fans will be the first in the state to check out this year's Thunder team when the team comes to town for their annual Blue and White Scrimmage Thursday, Oct. 18. Tip-off is at 6 p.m. It will take place in the SpiritBank Event Center.

Sam Presti, Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager, said in a press release this is an opportunity for the team to connect with fans across the state. It's also a way to support the Tulsa 66'ers, NBA's Developmental League affiliate of the Thunder. The SpiritBank Event Center is the new home of the 66'ers who will begin playing all of their homes games out of the arena.

The next night, on Oct. 19, the Thunder will take on the Phoenix Suns in a preseason game in Tulsa. That game will be held at the BOK Center and will tip off at 7 p.m.

All Tulsa 66'ers ticket package holders will receive first access to the Blue and White Scrimmage. For more information on how to attend, fans should call 918-585-8444 or email
