Durant sets franchise scoring record in win over T-wolves

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- Sometimes a team can have just a little too much prosperity.

The Oklahoma City Thunder entered Sunday night's game with Minnesota coming off two huge road wins at Boston and Dallas, wins that helped clinch a playoff spot for the franchise for the first time since the 2004-05 season. Then, Oklahoma City ran out to a 25-point lead on the Timberwolves in the first half.

Someone forgot to tell the Wolves the game was over though, as they closed the gap to 92-86 before the Thunder finally secured a 116-108 victory inside a sold-out Ford Center.

Oklahoma City blew a big lead in Dallas Saturday night but still won the game. The Thunder blew a big lead in Charlotte a couple of weeks ago and lost.

"There's maybe a little concern," admitted Thunder coach Scott Brooks. "When you have a lead you have to take care of the basketball and take good shots. We probably got away from that a little bit when they started to make their run."

Minnesota outscored Oklahoma City 21-8 during that spurt in the third quarter to climb back into the game at 80-71.

"The message I gave to them after the game was they have to play with that same energy and effort and desperation that they showed in the second half all of the time," said Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis. "When a team is ahead that many points you have to get stops, you can't trade baskets."

The Wolves did get stops, holding Oklahoma City to just 4-for-16 shooting during the opening stretch of the third.

"We had opportunities to cut it even closer but we missed some easy shots and gave up second chance opportunities," Rambis said.

"We played good enough to win," Brooks told a postgame gathering that included a group of high school journalism students, "but we have to get our defensive disposition back. The last four or five games our offense has carried us but we have to get that defensive mindset going again."

"We came out sluggish in the third quarter," Thunder forward Kevin Durant told reporters. "We had good shots we just couldn't make them."

Durant made more than his share though going 13-for-22. He led all scorers with 40 points, setting the franchise record for scoring in a single season with 2,258 points. Durant surpassed the old mark of 2,253 points, set by Dale Ellis during the 1988-89 season.

"It's my teammates that make me better and allow me to get open," Durant said. "Without them I couldn't be doing this. But it's a great honor to pass Dale Ellis."

The Thunder had five players score in double figures and two of those had double-doubles. Durant just missed with nine rebounds to go along with those 40 points. Jeff Green had 16 points and 10 rebounds and point guard Russell Westbrook dropped in 10 points and dished out a career-high 16 assists. Nenad Krstic and rookie Serge Ibaka each added 14 points, with Ibaka also grabbing nine rebounds.

The Thunder wasted no time in jumping on the Timberwolves as Oklahoma City raced out to an 18-point lead at the end of the first quarter, scoring a season-high 43 points to just 25 for the T-Wolves.

The Thunder shot a blistering 71.4% and Durant led the way with 20 points on 7-for-9 shooting in the initial 12 minutes.

The Thunder kept up the pressure in the second quarter, pushing the lead out to 25 points and settling for a 72-50 advantage at halftime.

Durant led all scorers at that point with 24. Corey Brewer was the only Minnesota player in double figures with 13.

Oklahoma City finished the game at 51.1%, and the Thunder are now 20-0 when making at least half their shots. The Timberwolves shot 47.4% and were led by 22 points from both Jonny Flynn and Ryan Gomes. Corey Brewer added 18 and Al Jefferson contributed 16.

OKC outrebounded the Timberwolves 47-34, with 15 of those coming on the offensive glass giving the Thunder an 18-8 advantage in second chance points.

The T-Wolves now have lost 24 of their last 26 games while the Thunder have won four in a row, six of their last seven and 24 of their last 31 to secure a trip to the playoffs. Now they're working on getting a higher seed.

"We just gotta keep playing hard and let the chips fall where they may," Durant said. "The playoffs are on a bigger stage but it's still just basketball."
