Notebook: Thunder 106, Timberwolves 97


Randy Renner, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 06, 2014 12:33 AM - Updated Thu Feb 06, 2014 12:33 AM

THE FACT: The Thunder won their eighth straight home game and their ninth straight in Oklahoma City over the Timberwolves.

THE LEAD: Kevin Durant led five Thunder players in double figures with 26 points as Oklahoma City pulled away from the Minnesota Timberwolves late to win 106-97.

Durant came close to another triple-double with nine rebounds and seven assists to go along with his 26 points. Point guard Reggie Jackson was outstanding scoring 20 points on 9-for-14 shooting and handing out nine assists against just one turnover. Serge Ibaka added 14 and Derek Fisher had 13 points on 5-for-7 shooting.

The Timberwolves played without All-Star forward Kevin Love who was a last minute scratch with a stiff neck. Also center Nikola Pekovic was on the bench and Corey Brewer wasn't with the team Wednesday after the birth of his son. Minnesota was led by 19 points from Ricky Rubio and 18 points from Love's replacement Dante Cunningham.

The Thunder won the battle of the boards 49-39 and outscored Minnesota on the fast break 14-2. Oklahoma City is now 40-11, the franchise's best record after 51 games since moving to OKC.

QUOTABLE: "I knew they'd play scrappy with three starters out. A wounded team generally steps up. But I thought we played good defense for only about four minutes in the first quarter and then in the fourth quarter. Other than that we didn't play the kind of defense we usually do."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks

THE STAT: Durant, who averages 9-for-10 at the free throw line, only took one free throw and hit it. It's the fewest free throw attempts for him in any game this season. The Thunder shot just 11 as a team and made eight. That's the second fewest team total from the stripe this season.

TURNING POINT: A 16-4 Thunder run from a Fisher buzzer-beating three to end the third quarter to a Jeremy Lamb jam gave the Thunder their biggest lead of the night at that juncture (12 points) and their first real breathing room in what had been a very tight ball game.

QUOTABLE II: "I thought the first three or four minutes of the fourth quarter gave us a chance to win the ball game."
-- Scott Brooks

QUOTABLE III: "I'm really proud of our guys, they busted their tail the whole game, just three points down in the fourth quarter and then we turned it over too many times, gave them easy baskets and gave them too many offensive rebounds. That's probably what hurt the most."
-- Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman

HOT: The Thunder started on fire from the field hitting 57.9 percent of their shots (11-for-19) in the first quarter. ... Durant was 4-for-6 (nine points) in the initial 12 minutes. ... The Thunder outrebounded Minnesota 26-16 in the first half. ... Cunningham was 5-for-6 (10 points) in the first half. ... Fisher was 4-for-5 (10 points) in the second half. ... Kendrick Perkins had six points and 12 rebounds.

NOT: The Timberwolves turned the ball over six times in the fourth quarter and 11 times in the second half. ... Durant was 1-for-4 (two points) in the fourth quarter.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Despite a snowstorm blowing through Oklahoma City and a temperature of 13 degrees outside the building, it was the 139th consecutive sellout at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Among those in the crowd, Olympic gold medal gymnasts Bart Conner and Nadia Comaneci. The husband and wife team own a gymnastics training facility in Norman.

GOOD MOVE(S): In the first quarter Jackson leads a fast break and hits Durant perfectly in stride with a bounce pass. KD lays it in. Then on OKC's next possession it was Durant with a nice bounce pass back out front to Jackson who hit an open three.

BAD MOVE: The Thunder seemed to start the game a little too relaxed, playing a Wolves team without Love, Pekovic and Brewer. Even though OKC shot a high percentage (54.8), they also had 11 turnovers leading to 13 Wolves points. Minnesota shot 46.7 percent in the first half. A Durant buzzer-beater 3-ball saved OKC from trailing at intermission.

ROOKIE WATCH: Thunder backup center Steven Adams played only eight minutes and didn't take a shot. He did pull down a couple of rebounds and he blocked a shot.

NOTABLE: Just before tipoff Durant was named the Kia Western Conference Player of the Month for January. He averaged 35.9 points in the month while shooting 54.9 percent. He scored at least 30 points in 13 of the 16 games he played in January and 40 or more points five times.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves: Friday @ New Orleans, Saturday vs. Portland, Monday vs. Houston. For the Thunder: Friday @ Orlando, Sunday vs. New York, Tuesday @ Portland.
