Celtics close road trip with solid win over Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The second youngest team in the NBA got a schooling from one of the league's most veteran squads Friday night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder (10-9) got an early taste for just how bitter things would be against the Boston Celtics (16-4) when Nick Collison blocked a Paul Pierce shot in the first sequence of the game only to have Kevin Durant get stripped of the ball at the other end as he went up for a slam.

That's the kind of night it would be as Boston was able to put it on cruise control in the second half on the way to a 105-87 win over Oklahoma City. The Celtics picked up their seventh straight victory. They are now an NBA-best 9-1 on the road.

"This is just a great road trip," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "We came out here and had a sweep even though all the teams are playing well. I thought this would be the toughest of all the nights, this being our last game and them playing well. It was a big concern for us."

"We got beat by one of the best teams in basketball," acknowledged Thunder coach Scott Brooks. "They challenged us every trip down the court and we didn't make shots when we needed to and didn't make plays when we needed to."

All five Celtics starters scored in double figures led by Kevin Garnett's 23 on 10-for-11 shooting. Paul Pierce dropped in 21, all in the first half. Even Rasheed Wallace and Eddie House, coming off the bench, put up double digits, hitting for 10 and 11 points respectively.

The Celtics play some of the tightest defense in the league, holding opponents to just 90.8 points per, but it was their offense that put this game away. Boston shot 56.5 percent and went 9-for-17 on 3-pointers.

"We shot the ball well. I thought the Thunder defended the shots pretty well but the ball just kept going in," Rivers said.

A 12-0 Boston run turned a promising 10-6 start for Oklahoma City into a desperation scramble to stay in the game. The Celtics led by as many as 14 in the first half.

Durant almost single-handedly kept his team in the game, hitting 22 points to lead all scorers at the break. Durant helped key an OKC comeback in the second that cut the Celtics' lead to six. But the Thunder got no closer.

"They kept their composure and stayed poised. They're a great team," Durant told reporters inside a subdued Oklahoma City dressing room.

Durant finished with a game-high 36 points.

"Kevin had a really good offensive night but he had to work very hard for everything he got," Brooks said.

Durant didn't care so much that he had a big night, becoming the second youngest player to score 4,000 points in his career. The sting of the loss was too great.

"They had an answer for everything we tried to do. We just have to get back to work."

Pierce, who had struggled in his last two games, not even scoring in double digits, bombed away from long range Friday night en route to 21 by halftime.

"We're getting better, it's a long process but we learn from wins and we learn from losses," he said.

The Thunder had hoped the Celtics might come in a little sluggish playing the second game of a back-to-back and coming in on the last game of a four-game road trip. Turns out that was fool's gold.

"I told my guys this could be a trap game, but don't fall in the trap," said Rivers.

Pierce knew the last game of the trip might be the hardest so he was pleased with the outcome.

"It was good to watch. We've been a good road team and the last game of a trip is a mental game."

The Thunder shut down Pierce in the second half but let Garnett loose for 11 third-quarter points, most coming on thunderous slams that help put the game away.

"I have a lot of respect for how they play," Brooks said. "They're good, they're physical, they're tough. They know all the tricks. It's a lesson for us to learn and get better from."

Maybe going to school on this night will be good for the second-youngest team in the NBA.
