Friday's crowd of 18,203 inside Oklahoma City Arena was the 26th sellout in 32 home games this season. … The Thunder is 18-6 overall and 10-2 at home against Eastern Conference teams. … OKC is in the midst of a seven-game stretch against nothing but East teams, which will be followed by 12 straight against the West before ending the season at home against Milwaukee. … Both teams shot exactly the same in the first half at 52.6 percent (20 for 38). … The Thunder shot 50.0 for the game and is now 18-3 when shooting 50 percent or better. … The Thunder is off today and will fly to Cleveland at 1 p.m.


“Harden is just one of those assassins that doesn't need much of a chance to knock it down. He made some big shots – long shots, too.” – Detroit coach John Kuester
