Sefolosha sets tone as Thunder clamp down on Heat, Wade

MIAMI (NBA.com exclusive) -- Oklahoma City makes its living with defense nowadays and the Thunder threw some serious defense on Miami in their 100-87 victory Monday.

The Thunder's defense entered the game ranked fifth in the NBA in points allowed (91.4) and eighth in field goal percentage (.438). It backed those rankings up by holding the Heat to just .431 shooting. It also out-rebounded Miami, 41-36, as it took another step toward developing its defensive identity.

"Going into training camp in late September we were focused on improving our defensive basketball," coach Scott Brooks said. "After last season we felt that we needed to play with toughness. We needed to have defensive thoughts in our mind. I thought the guys have really bought into it and are doing a great job."

Led by guard Thabo Sefolosha, the most instrumental player in holding Heat guard Dwyane Wade to 22 points on 9-for-12 shooting, Oklahoma City (6-5) clamped down on Miami (7-3) the entire night. The Heat, which trailed for the game's final three quarters, never got closer than eight points in the fourth quarter, and its last lead was at 16-15. Again, credit the defense. "When I watch them it looks very similar what they're doing," Spoelstra said. "That's a big reason for their success."

But the Oklahoma City offense wasn't bad, either.

Forward Kevin Durant had a game-high 32 points to go along with nine rebounds, and guard Russell Westbrook added 24 points and seven assists to lead a group of five players that scored in double digits. The Thunder shot .481 from the field, the best percentage by a Heat opponent this season.

And if you want another sure sign Oklahoma City, the league's second-youngest team, is growing up consider it has won road games at Detroit, San Antonio and Miami this season.

"We're playing as a team right now," Durant said. "We know how important it is to try and come in and sneak one from teams on their floor."

Miami was led offensively by Wade, who also had seven assists, six rebounds and four steals. But Sefolosha helped harass Wade into a season-high six turnovers. Heat center Jermaine O'Neal (19 points, 10 rebounds) had his third double-double of the season, and guard Daequan Cook came off the bench for a season-best 17 points, but the rest of Miami's offensive players were hard-pressed to do anything. Heat second-year forward Michael Beasley had eight points, just his third game in single digits, on 3-for-9 shooting and had no rebounds. Forward Udonis Haslem, who had been a star coming off the bench, was held to five points on 2-for-7 shooting.

"We didn't come out to play, and I didn't come out to play," Beasley said. The Thunder took a 74-59 lead into the fourth quarter. Durant, the league's fourth-leading scorer at 28.1 points per game, and Wade, the league's third-leading scorer at 29.7 points per game, had a bit of a scoring duel but it wasn't anything glamorous. Wade entered the fourth period with 17 points but on a woeful 4-for-16 shooting through three quarters. He was just 2-for-3 from the field in the fourth quarter.

Durant, defended by the rejuvenated Quentin Richardson for much of the night, was much more effective going 11-for-23 from the field and 9-for-9 from the line. It continued a hot streak for the third-year player from Texas, who entered the game having scored 40, 25, 30 and 37 points in his previous four games.

"He's 6-11, playing the [shooting] guard," Richardson said, "and that's a tough cover for most [shooting guards] and [small forwards] in the NBA. Someone who is as tall and quick as he is, together with that jump shot, you have to respect that. You can see the growth and maturity in him. For a young guy like that you have to take your hat off to him."
