Nuggets-Thunder notebook


By Randy Renner, for NBA.com
Posted Monday April 18, 2011 1:42AM

THE FACTS: Thunder All-Stars Kevin Durant (41) and Russell Westbrook (31) combined for 72 points as the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from 13 points down in the first half to beat the Denver Nuggets 107-103. Durant scored 11 of his 41 in the fourth quarter.

Thunder center Kendrick Perkins grabbed a rebound off a Westbrook miss and put it back in to put the Thunder ahead by one with 1:05 to play. Nuggets players and coaches thought goaltending should have been called on the play, but there was no whistle.

Nene led Denver with 22 points and eight rebounds. Danilo Gallinari added 18. Durant also grabbed nine rebounds and was 12-for-15 at the free throw line. The Nuggets shot only 63.6 percent (21-for-33) at the line. Oklahoma City has made a point of controlling Denver's transition game, limiting the Nuggets to just eight fast-break points each time the teams have played at the end of the regular season. Sunday night that trend continued as the Nuggets managed only nine points in transition.

QUOTABLE: "I just feel bad, obviously we got a stop, obviously it was goal tending. The ball wasn't even out of the cylinder how can you not see that?"
--Nuggets Coach George Karl on the Perkins rebound and putback.

QUOTABLE II: "I thought it was a great tip-in (by Perkins) a great offensive rebound."
--Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook on the same play.

THE STAT: Durant (13-for-22) and Westbrook (12-for-23) combined to go 25-for-45 (55.5 percent).

TURNING POINT: That Perkins putback with 1:05 to go. OKC had just let a 98-90 lead disappear and trailed 101-100 when the play occurred. The Thunder held on the rest of the way.

QUOTABLE III: "It's not just about scoring it's about defending and we played much better defense in the second half. Kevin (Durant) and Russell (Westbrook) were great, they're two All-Stars, but we're not just a Kevin and Russ team, we're a Thunder team. A lot of other guys helped us win tonight."
--Thunder Coach Scott Brooks

QUOTABLE IV: "We can make some adjustments on Durant and Westbrook and keep controlling their other guys and we can make it a heck of a series."
--Karl

HOT: In the first four and a half minutes of the game, the Nuggets were 7-for-7, including 2-for-2 on 3-pointers. ... In the first half Denver's Gallinari was 4-for-5 and Nene was 6-for-7. ... Gallo finished the game 6-for-11 and Nene finished 9-for-11. ... The Thunder's Westbrook was 8-for-11 and 2-for-2 on 3-pointers. ... Thunder guard Eric Maynor was 5-for-7.

NOT: In that same period of time, the Thunder was 3-for-9 (33.3 percent...In the first half, the Nuggets' Wilson Chandler was 2-for-7...The Thunder's Serge Ibaka was 0-for-4...Ibaka finished the game 1-for-8...The Nuggets Kenyon Martin was 4-for-12.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Just as in last season's first-round series with the Lakers, the Thunder passed out more than 18,000 blue T-shirts to the sellout crowd. On Thursday , Durant challenged the OKC fans to be even louder than they were in last year's series. When the Thunder came out for warmups, most of the 18,203 fans were already inside the building, standing and roaring.

GOOD MOVE: Early in the first quarter Denver point guard Ty Lawson faked to his left and then drove to his right past Thunder defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha to get into the lane for an uncontested lay-up.

GOOD MOVE II: Late in the first quarter, Westbrook drives into the lane, then goes up and over Denver center Nene for a nifty finger-roll basket.

BAD MOVE: The Thunder got lazy on an inbounds play following a Denver basket late in the second quarter. OKC's Serge Ibaka, trying to pass the ball in to Westbrook, doesn't notice Lawson racing in, and Ibaka tosses the ball right into Lawson's hands. He scores on a layin.

BAD MOVE II: Nuggets backup point guard Raymond Felton tries a soft toss toward Kenyon Martin in the closing seconds of the first half, but Westbrook steps in intercepts the pass and races down the floor for a high-flying slam.

BAD MOVE III: With less than five minutes remaining in the game, Denver's Nene got fancy with a behind-the-back, no-look bounce pass to Kenyon Martin. Martin had moved, and Nene's pass bounced into the crowd.

NOTABLE: Durant's 41 points are a new playoff high.

UP NEXT: Game 2 of the Thunder-Nuggets playoff series is set for Wednesday at 8 P.M. ET @ Oklahoma City.
