Nuggets-Thunder notebook

THE FACTS: The Oklahoma City Thunder jumped out to a 43-17 lead against the Denver Nuggets in the first half and withstood a couple of Denver runs to cruise to a 106-89 win over the Nuggets. Oklahoma City moves out to a 2-0 lead in their best of seven playoff series. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook again led the Thunder, but instead of combining for 72 points as they did Sunday the number was just 44 Wednesday. Durant led with 23 and Westbrook added 21. Thunder sixth man James Harden came up big this time with 18 points. Serge Ibaka added a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Kendrick Perkins pulled down 11 boards for OKC. The Thunder dominated the glass, outrebounding Denver 54-31. The Nuggets had four players in double figures led by Ty Lawson's 20 points. Nene and Raymond Felton added 16 apiece. The Thunder never trailed and have won five of the six games the two teams have played this season.

QUOTABLE: "That was a very good win, we did what we had to do, protect our home court. I thought the start of the game was about as good as we can play at both ends of the floor."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks.

QUOTABLE II: "It was a bad start for us, they were totally in control, totally energized. They were quicker than we were and probably smarter. The later when it looked like we could cut it to ten, a three ball would go in or an offensive rebound would break your heart."
-- Nuggets coach George Karl.

THE STAT: Denver had averaged 47 points in the paint against Oklahoma City in the five previous games, Wednesday night the Nuggets were held to just 28 paint points. The Thunder had 30.

TURNING POINT: The beginning of the game rattled the Nuggets and energized the Thunder players and their raucous fans. OKC went on a 16-1 run at one point to lead 31-15 after the first quarter and 43-17 four minutes into the second.

QUOTABLE III: "The first quarter really shook us."
-- George Karl

QUOTABLE IV: "We didn't want those guys to have a shooting barrage like they did Sunday night to start the game. Our energy at the beginning was great. We just tried to play hard."
-- Thunder forward Kevin Durant.

HOT: During a 21-7 Nuggets run in the second quarter, cutting a 26-point Thunder lead down to 12, Denver was 7-for-8...After going just 3-for-13 in Game 1... Ibaka (4-for-5) and Harden (3-for-4) combined to go 7-for-9 in the first half...Also in the first half Oklahoma City was 15-for-16 (93.8 percent) at the free-throw line...Nick Collison finished the game 4-for-5 and Ibaka finished 5-for-8.

NOT: The Nuggets opened the game 1-for-8...Nene was 0-3 in the opening five minutes and finished the first half just 1-for-6...In the first quarter Denver shot just 5-for-17 (29 percent) and two of those baskets came in the last 30 seconds of the quarter...In the first half Nuggets guard J.R. Smith was 1-for-6...Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was 3-for-10...OKC's backup point guard Eric Maynor scored just three points on 1-for-6 shooting...Denver's Danilo Gallinari (3-for-8), Smith (1-for-6) and Wilson Chandler (0-for-6) combined to score 13 points on just 4-for-20.

INSIDE THE ARENA: 18,203 "Thunder Blue" tee-shirts were again distributed to the sell-out crowd. NBA "Superfan" James Goldstein attended the game and sat court side.

GOOD MOVE: Karl decided to put Chandler on Westbrook after seeing Westbrook torch Denver's point guards for 31 points Sunday night. In the first half Chandler held Westbrook to just nine points on 3-for-10 shooting.

GOOD MOVE II: Westbrook, being pressured in the back court by Chandler gets away, drives into the lane with a spin move then leaps to deliver a soft finger roll basket.

BAD MOVE: Denver forward Kenyon Martin was not happy that officials didn't call a foul on Ibaka in the first quarter after Ibaka went up hard to challenge a Martin shot. Going back down court Martin gave Ibaka a forearm shot right in front of lead official Monty McCutchen who T'd up Martin.

BAD MOVE TOO: Midway through the fourth quarter, Chandler fired a backwards pass toward forward Al Harrington but Harrington made a quick move along the baseline just as Chandler made his pass and the ball sailed into the crowd.

NOTABLE: Through the history of the NBA playoffs 94 percent of teams with a 2-0 series lead go on to win the series.

UP NEXT: The scene shifts to Denver for Game 3 of the Thunder-Nuggets series. Tip-off is set for 10:30 p.m. ET Saturday inside the Pepsi Center.
