By The Numbers: Thunder-Spurs

by Darnell Mayberry Published: January 9, 2012

Numbers to note from Sundays win over the Spurs.

0: Minutes played by the Thunder’s starters in the fourth quarter, the second time in three games that no starter had to play in the final frame.

1: Double-double by Nick Collison this season. He scored 12 points with 10 rebounds in 22 minutes.

3: Assists shy of a triple-double by Kevin Durant. He finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in 28 minutes. It would have been his first career triple-double.

4: Points scored by Spurs guard Tony Parker on 1-for-8 shooting. Parker, who has been a thorn for the Thunder, looked like a shell of his former self. In three games against OKC last season, Parker averaged 19.3 points 4.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists.

10: Free throw attempts for Durant. It was the third time Durant has attempted at least 10 free throws. He made all 10, marking the third time this season he’s been perfect from the charity stripe.

11: Points scored by rookie guard Reggie Jackson, a career high. Jackson is now the primary backup to Russell Westbrook and the best is yet to come. But Jackson was solid in his first meaningful minutes, adding four assists in 23 minutes.

18: Points scored by Spurs guard Gary Neal, who led San Antonio in scoring. Neal was sensational shooting the rock, making 7-of-12 from the field while going 2-for-3 from 3-point range.

21: Fast break points by the Thunder. It was 15 more than the Thunder had Friday night at Houston.

25: Assists for the Thunder, tying a season high which originally was set on New Year’s Eve against Phoenix.

48: Rebounds for Oklahoma City, a season high. The Thunder out-rebounded the Spurs by six and controlled the glass throughout much of the game. In the third quarter, OKC out-rebounded San Antonio 13-4 en route to a 37-21 period.

50.7: Percent shooting by the Thunder. It was the second time in three games and the fourth time this season that OKC has converted at least 50 percent of its field goals.

108: Points scored by the Thunder, the second highest total for OKC this season and the third time in the past six games in which the Thunder has finished with at least 107 points.
