Durant ties record as Thunder scoot past Jazz

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder have come a long way in their improvement -- 14 games to be exact.

Last season on New Year's Eve, Oklahoma City beat Golden State for its fourth win victory. Exactly one year later, the Thunder picked up win No. 18 with a thrilling 87-86 win over the Utah Jazz (18-14) inside a soldout and roaring Ford Center.

Oklahoma City forward Nick Collison hit two free throws with 4.5 seconds to play to give the Thunder their one point lead. Collison had missed three of his last four free throws before drilling the two most important of the game.

Jazz point guard Deron Williams was then hounded by OKC's defensive ace Thabo Sefolosha and couldn't get a shot, instead passing to Ronnie Price who missed a 21-foot baseline jumper at the buzzer.

Thunder star Kevin Durant led all scorers with 31 points, his sixth straight game of more than 30 points, tying a 37-year-old franchise record set by Spencer Haywood in January 1972.

"I had no clue I tied Spencer Haywood's record," Durant said, "that's a great honor. My teammates did a great job of finding me. It really feels good tonight it's a big step up."

The victory is the fifth straight for Oklahoma City and the Thunder did it despite a pathetic night from the free throw line (they were 14-for-28) and with a discombobulated offense (19 turnovers).

"We're a good free throw shooting team but for whatever reason we didn't hit them tonight," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. "It was sure nice to see Nick hit those two at the end."

"Turnovers and missed free throws don't mean anything as long as you win the game, but we just have to get back to work tomorrow and keep trying to get better," Durant said.

Jazz coach Jerry Sloan was not happy with his team's effort.

"I don't think we worked too hard," Sloan said. "We have to put somebody out there that is going to compete rather than getting bumped or touched. If you want to get out there and be a factor in the game you have to go out there and compete, you can't just play in a tuxedo."

Carlos Boozer led Utah with 17 points but 13 of those came in the first half and Boozer was shut out in the critical fourth quarter. Point guard Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews added 14 points for the Jazz, who are now 1-12 when trailing going into the fourth quarter.

Durant had eight rebounds and five assists while Jeff Green had 12 points and Nenad Krstic dropped in 10 points. Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook shot 3-for-12 from the field and had eight points, but he dished a game-high 10 assists.

"Russell did a great job controlling the game tonight," Brooks said. "I know he didn't want to go 3-for-12 tonight but he did a lot of things that helped us win."

In the first half the teams' big stars led the way. Durant paced all scorers with 16 points and Boozer led his squad with 13.

The Thunder trailed for much of the first half, but jumped in front on a Durant alley-oop dunk off a Westbrook pass, then extended the advantage to four Collison jammed home another pass from Westbrook.

Oklahoma City shot a blistering 58.8 percent in the second quarter while limiting the Jazz to just 35 percent shooting. Utah missed all six of their 3-point shots in the half, Oklahoma City was almost as bad, going just 1-for-5 from long range.

An aggressive, switching Thunder defense frustrated Jazz point guard Deron Williams, limiting him to two points on 1-for-4 shooting, two assists and two turnovers in the half.

It was a festive atmosphere inside the Ford Center where fans could a head start on the New Year's celebration.

"Our crowd is amazing," Brooks said. "They help us win games, they helped us win this game. The atmosphere was great tonight."
