The Oklahoma City Thunder shot nearly 61 percent from the field as they held on for the win over the Nets in Brooklyn on Tuesday night. Kevin Durant had 32 point and went 12-for-12 from the free throw line in the 117-111 victory.
Brooklyn had five players score in double figures, including Deron Williams, who led all scorers with 33. But the Thunder simply made the shots they took.
OKC was up by 16 midway through the third quarter, but the Nets never let go. Brooklyn trailed by only four entering the final quarter and got to within two in the final two minutes, but never took the lead.
Durant had six assists and five rebounds to go with this 32 points. Russell Westbrook put in 25 for the Thunder.
Serge Ibaka had 18 points in the win and Thabo Sefolosha doubled his season scoring average with 14.
