TORONTO — When Kevin Durant baited Toronto forward Chris Bosh into cheating across the lane to supply a show of help defense, Durant whipped a pass to a wide open Nenad Krstic for an uncontested two-handed dunk. The play gave the Thunder a 19-point lead Friday night, oddly enough just 14 seconds from the same time Oklahoma City took its 19-point advantage in Charlotte two nights earlier. This time, the Thunder closed out the half and the game, first extending its lead to 27 at the break and bumping that to as many as 34 before walking out of Air Canada Centre with a 115-89 victory. "That was our best game of the year,” assured Thunder coach Scott Brooks. The 26-point margin of victory trails only the Thunder’s 28-point home blowout of Orlando six games into the season. But much more significant than the final score was the way the Thunder handled business after blowing its big lead against the Bobcats and coming to Canada on the heels of a 100-92 loss that ended its five-game winning streak. Oklahoma City never trailed after taking a 19-17 lead with 4:46 remaining in the first period. The Thunder ended the quarter on 24-8 surge that turned it into a blowout early. By halftime, the Thunder had built a 71-44 lead, effectively slamming the door shut on any hope the Raptors or their fans had at a comeback. And by the time Eric Maynor dribbled out the clock from high above the left wing, the boo birds in Toronto made their voices heard for the seventh time on the night. Well, to be fair, one chorus of boos was directed at the officials, not the home team. "It’s big,” said Nick Collison of the Thunder’s performance. "The way seasons go in the NBA, momentum I think is a real thing. And you can get bad momentum, too, especially on the road. It was really important for us to have a game like this and play well and not get shook. Teams sometimes get shook a little bit when they don’t play well. Two games turn into three and so on.” The Thunder instead moved to 42-25, adding Toronto to a list of six other teams Oklahoma City has swept this season. With dogged defense, ball movement and ball security, the Thunder manhandled the Raptors in every facet of the game. OKC held the Raptors to 43.8 percent shooting, outrebounded Toronto 53-37, including 20-6 on the offensive end to lead to a 27-6 advantage in second-chance points, and flew around the ball all night, coming up with 10 steals and seven blocked shots. Combined, it more than made up for the Thunder’s 41.5 percent shooting. OKC also got to the line 33 times, including 18 attempts by Durant, whose 15-for-15 streak in the first half tied Lenny Wilkens’ franchise mark for makes in a half, set back in November of 1969. Of the five starters, only Thabo Sefolosha played in the final quarter. "I like the fact that there was a lesson from the last game,” Brooks said. "Tonight we were in that same situation and we added on to the lead. That, I thought was a very important part of the game.” Text "OKTHUNDER” to 65360 for your chance to win an OKC Thunder Fan Prize Pack.
