PHOENIX – The Oklahoma City Thunder could have held a double celebration after Wednesday night's 116-98 romp on the road over the Phoenix Suns. The Thunder locker room instead was impressively calm considering OKC had just put the finishing touches on the greatest month in franchise history (14-2) while matching last year's win total (50-24) with eight games still remaining. It was business as usual. Shower, get dressed, hop on a charter and get ready for the next game. "I think it's a good sign for our team that this is not a huge deal," said power forward Nick Collison, who has experienced some lean years since joining the franchise in 2003. "Our minds are in the right place, I think. At this time of year, it's good to be on a roll." Before the game, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he didn't mention the number 50, nor did he address the possibility of the best record for a month in franchise history – which includes the Seattle days dating back to 1967. "No reason to be satisfied when you're capable of doing more," Brooks said. Not everyone was ignorant of what the numbers represented, however. All-Star forward Kevin Durant, who finished with 22 points and three blocked shots, said he was very much aware of both records. "After my first two seasons, man, we went from two 20-win seasons to two 50-win seasons," said Durant, who joined the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007. "That's a big turnaround and it's something that can't be overlooked. It means a lot, but once you get in the postseason, it's kind of out the window." The Thunder front office prefers to keep its records separate from the Seattle SuperSonics, but it's the first back-to-back 50-win seasons for the franchise since 1997-98. "People were kind of saying we got worse this year, especially early in the season when we had a tough stretch," Durant said. "But we're hitting a good stride right now. Hopefully, we can keep it up. We just have to continue to be humble and come to work every day." Behind a 37-point fourth quarter, the Thunder silenced a crowd of 18,033 inside the US Airway Center, where OKC now has won three straight. The Thunder's impressive showing was well-dispersed. Former Arizona State standout James Harden, who was playing roughly 10 miles from his collegiate campus, finished with 22 points and three steals off the bench and shot 7 for 9 from the field, including 3 for 5 from 3-point range. Serge Ibaka had 15 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. Russell Westbrook had 16 points and eight assists. Center Kendrick Perkins had 13 points. The Thunder (50-24) plays at Portland (43-32) on Friday, at the Los Angeles Clippers (29-46) on Saturday, at Denver (45-29) on Tuesday before returning home to face the Clippers again on Wednesday. "We're trying to win all the remaining games," Collison said. "We're concerned about getting the best playoff seeding we can. I think we expected to win 50 when you looked at the schedule and we had nine games left to get another win. It's a great accomplishment for us, especially from where we came from a couple of years ago." The Thunder led much of the first half and clung to a 79-73 lead through three quarters before exploding in the final period. The Suns' frustration reached its peak with 1:05 left in the game when Zabian Dowdell and Aaron Brooks were ejected for arguing with officials. Afterward, Phoenix players and coaches walked directly toward their locker room without exchanging a handshake or wave with anyone in the OKC party, even though it was the final game between the teams this season. "It was a bad night for us," said Suns center Marcin Gortat. "We have great fans that deserve to see better basketball." The last time Phoenix (36-38) fell two games under .500 this season was the last time it played the Thunder. When the Thunder last played here, Suns guard Vince Carter erupted for a season-high 33 points on Feb. 4. On Wednesday night, the 34-year-old Carter had a game-high 28 points despite being bumped from the starting lineup.
