Thunder-Nuggets notebook

THE FACTS: Saying he didn't want to have to go back to Denver for Game 6, Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant scored 16 of his team's final 20 points and 41 overall to lead the Thunder to a came from behind 100-97 win over the Denver Nuggets. The victory sends Oklahoma City into the second round of the NBA playoffs against the winner of the San Antonio-Memphis series. Durant also blocked a shot in the final seconds. Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook added 14 on just 3-for-15 shooting, he was 7-for-10 at the free-throw line. OKC power forward Serge Ibaka only scored one point but he blocked nine shots and grabbed eight rebounds. Arron Afflalo lad the Nuggets with 15 points but he missed what would have been a game tying 3-pointer at the buzzer. Oklahoma City dominated the boards, outrebounding Denver 51-38 and 16-4 on the offensive glass. The Thunder shot only 36.6 percent for the game but outscored the Nuggets 28-21 in the decisive fourth quarter. The Nuggets led by nine points with less than four minutes to go. Durant hit a 3-pointer with 3:23 left to begin the final Thunder push.

QUOTABLE: "I was just thinkin I didn't want to go back to Denver, it was cold and rainy and their crowd said some not nice things to us so I didn't want to have to go back there. Our guys told me 'take the game over it's your time,' Russ [Westbrook] told me this is what you do now go do it."
--Thunder forward Kevin Durant on his late-game heroics

QUOTABLE II: "Durant made some very difficult shots. I don't care how many guys we put him he's probably gonna make those shots."
-- Nuggets coach George Karl

THE STAT: Durant was 5-for-6 in the last 3:23 of the game and scored 14 points. He also blocked a shot and grabbed a rebound

QUOTABLE III: "There's not a lot of times you can say you won a game shooting 36 percent but we did. Our guys stuck together and Serge [Ibaka] with his blocks stopped layups and dunks and K.D. made big shots and he continues to lead us. All his hard work is paying off."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks

TURNING POINT: With the Thunder trailing by nine points and a sellout crowd beginning to think the game was slipping away, Kevin Durant put up an off balance 3-point shot that went in, cutting the margin to six and getting the crowd roaring again. Durant said that's when he began to feel things would end up going the Thunder's way.

QUOTABLE IV: "Our crowd won this game for us, they really pulled us through they won a series for us."
-- Kevin Durant

HOT: In the first quarter, Durant was 5-for-9...Denver center Nene was 3-for-4...In the first half, Thunder backup point guard Eric Maynor was 3-for-4...OKC center Kendrick Perkins was 3-for-4...Denver forward Kenyon Martin was 4-for-7...Durant finished the game 14-for-27 and was 5-for-6 coming down the stretch.

NOT: In the first quarter, Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha was 1-for-4...In the first half, Westbrook had five points on 1-for-6 shooting...OKC backup shooting guard James Harden was 1-for-5 overall and 1-for-4 on 3-pointers...Denver point guard Ty Lawson was 2-for-6...Westbrook finished 3-for-15...Ibaka finished 0-for-4.

INSIDE THE ARENA: More blue tee-shirts for Thunder fans, along with white pom-pons, were distributed to the 18,203 inside Oklahoma City Arena. Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin sat courtside.

GOOD MOVE: After a scrum at the Oklahoma City end of the floor, the Nuggets got the rebound, Lawson fired a pass down court to Afflalo, who was defended one-on-one by Durant, went up high with Afflalo and blocked his shot.

GOOD MOVE, TOO: Thunder forward Nick Collison reached to bat a pass away from Nuggets center Chris Andersen. Collison tossed the ball ahead to Harden, who raced down court to flip a behind-the-back alley-oop pass to Durant for the slam.

GOOD MOVE III: Late in the game, Durant drived into the lane, got fouled, fell backward to hit the shot. Durant also hit the free throw to give the Thunder a one-point lead with a minute to go.

BAD MOVE: Halfway through the second quarter, the Thunder defense stood around and watched while Denver's Danilo Gallinari went up for a slam. Gallinari gave Durant a head fake to drive past him, but Perkins and Ibaka didn't do anything to slow Gallo's drive to the basket.

NOTABLE: Durant's 41 points ties the playoff high he set in the first game of this series...This is the first series win since the franchise moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City.

UP NEXT: The winner of the San Antonio-Memphis series. If the Spurs win they will have home-court advantage, if the Grizzlies win the series will begin in OKC.
