Thunder report card: Kevin Durant gets an A; offensive execution a D

Halftime act: A. Red Panda is the greatest show in the NBA, not wearing jerseys. The acrobat never fails to deliver, especially when she kicks five bowls from her instep onto bowls resting atop her head, all the while riding a 7-foot unicycle.

Hustle: A. The Thunder made up for poor play with effort. From Westbrook's maniacal forays into the paint to the 50/50 plays on loose balls won by Harden and Thabo Sefolosha down the stretch, the Thunder worked its way to this win.

Rim protection: A. Fourteen blocked shots. Fourteen! And not just from Ibaka, who had nine. Durant's block of J.R. Smith's 3-pointer in the final 10 seconds helped save the game, but in the final three minutes, Harden had a big block of Arron Afflalo's shot, with Denver up five.
