“It's a big jump from last year,” said Durant. “Everybody's helping. Serge (Ibaka) is doing a great job, (Kendrick Perkins), Steven (Adams). We just got to keep it up.

“Coach told us the numbers, the record we have when we out-rebound teams. It's a crazy number. So in order to give ourselves a chance to win we have to out-rebound our opponents.”

The Thunder is 4-1 this season when it out-rebounds opponents.

Golden State coach Mark Jackson on how his team squandered a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead to the Thunder on Thursday night: “Two bad boys in blue. Simple as that. Kevin Durant making plays, (Russell) Westbrook making plays. Durant being unselfish and finding guys. You give the best player on the floor your undivided attention and he was unselfish and he made plays.”
