By The Numbers: Thunder-Wizards

by Darnell Mayberry Published: January 19, 2012

Numbers to note from Wednesday’s loss at Washington.

2: Wins for the Washington Wizards. They entered the night as the league’s worst team with their lone win coming against Toronto.

3: Wizards players with 10-plus free throw attempts. John Wall had a game-high 14, Jordan Crawford attempted 11 and Nick Young stepped to the stripe 10 times.

7: Turnovers by Kevin Durant, a season-high.

8: Missed 3-pointers by Durant.

10: Rebounds by Serge Ibaka, a season-high.

15: Assists by the Thunder.

19: Offensive rebounds by Washington, tying an opponent season high. Memphis pulled down that many against the Thunder in the third game of the season. The Thunder has now allowed at least 10 offensive rebounds in every game this season and have yielded a league-worst 13.3 offensive boards a night.

21: Turnovers by OKC, leading to 21 Washington points. It was the fifth time in 15 games that the Thunder has finished with more turnovers than assists.

36: Points scored by Russell Westbrook, a new season-high.

38.4: Percent shooting by the Wizards.

43: Free throw attempts by Washington. The Wizards attempted 22 foul shots in the fourth quarter and had 20 in the final 3 1/2 minutes as the Thunder tried to put them on the stripe and hope for a miss to get back in the game.

59: Second-half points by Washington, the most the Thunder has allowed this season in the second half. The previous high was set by Minnesota on Dec. 26.

69: Combined points scored by Westbrook and Durant.

105: Points scored by the Wizards, the most the Thunder has allowed all season. The previous opponent high was 103 by Portland on Jan. 3. It was also the first time in eight games that the Thunder allowed at least 100 points.
