Thunder star Kevin Durant:
"We kept fighting. That's one thing we can take out of this."
"Russell got some good looks. He had that three to go up 1, and it just rimmed out."
"Those guys got a big lift from their crowd. Their bench played really well."
"You got to give credit to Denver. They played a great game."
"It's tough to win (in Denver). Our home crowd is great. They're going to be very loud on Wednesday."
"We're looking forward to Game 5. Any opportunity to play this game is a blessing, and we're looking forward to it."
"Serge did a great job of blocking shots. They shot 38 percent as a team. We just had too many turnovers and gave up too many easy threes."
"We've got to be better."
"On last second 3-point attempt: Russ got a good look, and it looked like it was going in, but it didn't."
Nuggets coach George Karl:
"(Ty Lawson) had a special game. He and Westbrook is a fun thing to watch. They're special kids."
"We have to accept that they're going to block some shots and that their interior defense is going to make some plays."
"I thought we won the extra possession, hustle game in the second half."
"We finally got some wing (players) playing with confidence in the second half."
"Only shooting 38 percent and still winning the game is a positive."
"I wish we would have made one more shot, and it wouldn't have gotten as scary as it got."
"Durant and Westbrook were so hyped at the end, and it was impressive what they were able to do."
"We've got to try to find basketball plays rather than run basketball plays."
"I wasn't afraid of the game."
