by Darnell Mayberry Published: January 22, 2012

Numbers to note from Saturday’s 84-74 win at New Jersey.

4: Missed free throws by Kevin Durant. He was 2-of-6 on the night. In his previous six games, Durant had made 46 of 48 from the stripe.

5: Blocked shots by Serge Ibaka, a season-high. Ibaka helped the Thunder record 10 blocked shots, the third time this season that the Thunder has had at least 10 swats. Ibaka also had nine rebounds, giving him 19 boards in the past two games. Ibaka had pulled down only 19 rebounds in his previous four games prior to the last two.

8: Rebounds by guard Thabo Sefolosha, a season-high.

9: Rebounds by James Harden, a career-high. Harden also scored 16 points on 5-for-9 shooting, salvaging something of the three-game road trip. In the first two games, Harden averaged just nine points on 31.2 percent shooting.

12: Turnovers by Durant in his last two games. KD had five against the Nets after seven at Washington.

13: Percent shooting from 3-point range by New Jersey. The Nets were just 3-for-23.

14: Points scored by Nets guard Deron Williams on 5-for-18 shooting. Williams missed all six of his 3-point attempts and had six assists and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

16: Offensive rebounds by the Nets. Oklahoma City out-rebounded New Jersey 55-46 but got beat by two on the offensive end. The Nets’ total on the offensive end raised the Thunder’s league-worst opponent offensive rebounds to 13.5 per game.

17: Biggest lead by the Thunder. OKC led for good after taking a 13-12 lead with 4:49 left in the opening period.

19: Turnovers by the Thunder. The Nets scored only 10 points off those giveaways. But OKC had just 13 assists. It was the sixth time the Thunder has finished a game with more turnovers than assists.

22: Points off turnovers for the Thunder. OKC had 18 points on 12 Nets turnovers by halftime alone.

31: Percent shooting by New Jersey, an opponent low for the Thunder.

35: Halftime points by the Nets, an opponent low for any half this season by the Thunder.

74: Points scored by the Nets, an opponent low for the Thunder this season. In the previous game, the Thunder allowed Washington to score 105 points, which set an opponent season high.

84: Points scored by the Thunder, a season-low. The previous low by OKC was 87 at Dallas on Jan. 2.
