The Thunder has entered the fourth quarter trailing six times at home this season.
All six times, OKC has come back to win, the latest coming during a wild 111-109 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Atlanta led for a majority of the night, up by as much as 14 points in the middle of the third quarter. But a frantic Thunder comeback, including a 32-22 fourth quarter, was capped by a Kevin Durant game-winner.
“That's directly the result of the competitive spirit of our guys,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said of the 6-0 stat. “We have a competitive group. They don't like to lose a free-throw shooting contest.”
WESTBROOK NOT ON THE BENCH
During Monday's game against the Hawks, Russell Westbrook wasn't in his typical spot at the end of the Thunder bench.
Instead, OKC's injured All-Star was back in Los Angeles, getting a planned check-up on his surgically repaired right knee.
ROYAL IVEY LEAVES FOR CHINA
Royal Ivey's latest stint in the NBA came with an unblemished record. And it will end that way.
During his recent 10-day contract with the Thunder, which expired on Sunday, Ivey received an offer to play in China.
And because of that, the likable but sporadically used Thunder guard will hop overseas for the final month-and-a-half of the Chinese season, rather than signing another 10-day contract with the Thunder.
During Ivey's 10 days in OKC, he only appeared in two games, playing five minutes and grabbing one rebound. But his arrival coincided with the team's sudden turnaround. The Thunder went 7-0 with Ivey.
OKC could have signed him to one more 10-day contract, before being forced to either let him go or commit to him for the rest of the season. But that point becomes moot.
The Thunder roster now sits at 13.
NFL STAR POWER
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was in attendance for the Thunder-Hawks game.
He was shown on the big screen during the game, receiving a loud, but mixed reaction of cheers and boos from the Thunder crowd.
ANDRE ROBERSON DOWN TO TULSA AGAIN
Thunder rookie Andre Roberson continued his ping-pong trips between OKC and Tulsa.
Roberson was sent down the 66ers on Monday, for the third time this month and fourth time this season.
He had 20 points and 13 rebounds Monday night to help Tulsa whip Rio Grande Valley 144-127.
KEVIN DURANT WINS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Predictably, Durant was named Western Conference Player of the Week again.
It's the fourth time Durant has won it this season. He averaged 38.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 6.3 assists in three games.
STAT OF THE NIGHT
Durant became the fifth player in the past 30 years to score 30 or more points in 11 straight games. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady and Shaquille O'Neal are the others.
STREAK OF THE NIGHT
Kyle Korver didn't waste time extending his NBA record streak to 113 straight games with a 3-pointer. Korver drilled a triple on the Hawks' third possession, 88 seconds into the game.
A big one awaits the Thunder on Wednesday. OKC travels to Miami to face the two-time defending champ. Tip is at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
