The Thunder flipped an 18-point deficit into a 25-point lead before walking away with the 17-point win.

 

NETS TURNAROUND STARTED AGAINST OKC

For the second straight year, the Thunder might have kick-started Brooklyn's turnaround.

Starting with their 95-93 upset victory over the Thunder inside Chesapeake Energy Arena on Jan. 2, the Nets have gone 10-2 in their past 12 games. They were 10-21 in their first 31 games.

Last season, the Nets were 16-15 before they stole a 110-93 win in Oklahoma City. That performance ignited a seven-game winning streak and powered the Nets to wins in nine of their next 10 games.

 

QUOTABLE

Kevin Durant — “If you turn it on for just the top tier teams and you don't care about the teams whose records aren't that good, then you're not a real competitor in my book.”

66ERS UPDATE

The Tulsa 66ers will host the Los Angeles D-Fenders at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, in a makeup game. The D-League teams were supposed to play Jan. 7, but that game was postponed due weather-related travel problems. Ticket information will be announced at a later date.
