By The Numbers: Thunder-Celtics

by Darnell Mayberry Published: January 17, 2012

Numbers to note from Monday’s 97-88 win at Boston

4: Blocked shots by Serge Ibaka, a season high. Ibaka notched the new mark in just 15 first-half minutes. He played only seven minutes in the second half.

5: 3-pointers made by the Thunder in the final five minutes. Oklahoma City had made just two of 13 3-pointers in the previous 43 minutes.

7: Game-winning streak by the Thunder, two shy of the franchise’s Oklahoma City era record for consecutive wins.

11: Bench points scored by the Thunder, which saw its reserves make just 5-of-22 shots. James Harden scored a season-low five points on 2-for-8 shooting while Nick Collison added six points on 3-for-7 shooting. Nazr Mohammed, Daequan Cook and Reggie Jackson combined to miss all seven of their shot attempts.

12: Fourth-quarter points scored by guard Thabo Sefolosha, the most of any player in the final quarter. Sefolosha went 4-for-4 from the field, including 2-for-2 from the 3-point line and made a pair of foul shots.

13: Thunder turnovers, leading to just two Celtics points.

19: Celtics turnovers, leading to 24 Thunder points.

20: Second-chance points by Boston. The Celtics out-rebounded the Thunder 48-40, including 15-9 on the offensive end. Kevin Garnett (12 points, 12 rebounds) and Jermaine O’Neal (12 points, 11 rebounds) both had double-doubles for the Celtics.

39.1: Percent shooting for the Celtics, tying the second lowest percentage by a Thunder opponent this season. OKC held Orlando to 37 percent in the season opener, and limited Memphis to 39.1 percent in the Game 3.

54: Combined points by Kevin Durant (28) and Russell Westbrook (26).

88: Points scored by Boston, the seventh straight game that the Thunder has held an opponent to less than 100 points. During its seven-game winning streak, the Thunder has held opponents to 92.1 points per game.
