"It was good to get some revenge on them,” the Thunder’s Jeff Green
The Thunder has won 12 consecutive games when holding opponents under 100 points. It’s been almost three months — a 98-96 loss to Houston on Jan. 9 — since Oklahoma City has lost when allowing less than 100 points.
"The defensive effort was great. We held their big guys in check like we wanted to,” said Kevin Durant
, referring to Randy Foye
and Kevin Love
and Mike Miller
combining for 23 points. "We did a good job not giving up offensive rebounds and keeping their good shooters off the line.”
Oklahoma City scored 57 first-half points. The stat that jumped out was one turnover the first half, 10 for the game.
"Offensively, it was some of our best basketball we’ve played almost all year in the first half,” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks
