A significant roar came during a timeout with 7:52 left in the second quarter when Durant's mother, Wanda Pratt, was shown standing and clapping to the Bee Gees hit "You Should Be Dancing."

Durant was sitting on the scorer's table, waiting for the timeout to end, when he looked up and saw his mother on the big screen. Reserve center Nazr Mohammed simultaneously was giving some last-minute instructions to Durant, who nodded and then looked up again.


*The Thunder is now 24-6 this season after a loss, 4-0 in the playoffs.
