By The Numbers: Thunder-Spurs

by Darnell Mayberry Published: February 5, 2012

Numbers to note from Saturday’s 107-96 loss at San Antonio.

11: Rebounds by Kevin Durant. Coupled with his team-high 22 points, Durant registered his fifth straight double-double and his 10th of the season. Durant’s 11 rebounds raised his team-leading rebounding rate to 8.3 per game, currently 0.7 more than his career high for an entire season.

12: Made 3-pointers by San Antonio. It was one shy of tying the most a team has made against the Thunder this season. The Los Angeles Clippers made 13 on Jan. 30. Five Spurs players made at least one 3. Three Spurs players made three 3s.

15: Rebounds by Tim Duncan, tying Dwight Howard for the second most rebounds an opposing player has pulled down against the Thunder. New Jersey forward Kris Humphries holds the record with 16.

17: Second-chance points scored by the Spurs. The Thunder scored just seven second-chance points.

19: Points scored by James Harden. The Bearded One made 5-of-10 shots in 30 minutes. In his previous two road games, Harden scored a combined 17 points on 5-for-21 shooting.

24: Largest lead by the Spurs. It’s the most the Thunder has trailed by in any game this season. The previous widest margin was a 22-point lead held by the Clippers on Jan. 30. San Antonio blew open the game in a nine-minute stretch of the third quarter, using a 26-10 run to turn a 59-51 advantage into an 85-61 game.

42: Points scored by Spurs guard Tony Parker. It was the most any player has scored on the Thunder this season. The previous high was 30 by Portland forward LaMarcus Aldridge on Jan. 3. Parker’s scoring by quarter: six, 10, 16, 10.

60.7: Free throw percentage by the Thunder. OKC made just 17 of 28 foul shots to finish with the franchise’s lowest free throw percentage in a game since Dec. 31, 2008, when the Thunder converted just 14-of-28 foul shots (50 percent).

107: Points scored by San Antonio. It was the third time in five games that the Thunder allowed at least 100 points. Oklahoma City is now 3-5 when it allows 100 points or more.

4,477: Career assists by Parker, who now is the Spurs’ all-time leader in helpers.
