Notebook: Suns 128, Thunder 122


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Mar 07, 2014 1:37 AM - Updated Fri Mar 07, 2014 1:37 AM

THE FACT: Kevin Durant and Goran Dragic are two of only three NBA players this season to be averaging at least 20 points and five assists while also shooting at least 50 percent from the field.

THE LEAD: Phoenix's Gerald Green went toe-to-toe with OKC's Durant and came out on top, as did the Suns with a 128-122 win Thursday night in Arizona.

Green scored career high 41 points, including an amazing 25 in the third quarter to pull the Suns (36-25) out of a 16-point deficit. Markieff Morris added 24 points while Dragic had 22 points. For the Thunder (46-16), Russell Westbrook scored a season-high 36 (plus nine rebounds and nine assists), while Durant scored 34.

The Thunder took a 118-116 lead with 3:41 left, but Dragic hit a driving layup to tie the game at 118 with 2:22 left, then scored on a reverse layup to give the Suns a 120-118 lead with 2:02 left.

The Suns got some big stops at this point, and then Marcus Morris made a perfect lob to twin brother Markieff to give the Suns a 122-118 lead with 1:11 left. The Suns thus broke the Thunder's 11-game win streak in the series.

QUOTABLE: "I'm still trying to prove myself. I having done anything in this league."
-- Phoenix's Gerald Green

THE STAT: Green's 25-point third quarter was the second-highest in the Suns' 46-season history. Stephon Marbury scored 26 on Nov. 29, 2002 vs. San Antonio in the fourth quarter.

TURNING POINT: The Suns took off on amazing 23-2 run late in the third quarter to take a 103-98 lead.

QUOTABLE II: "We knew he could shoot the ball. But we didn't anticipate the way he can get hot and make shots.There's not many guys who can get on a roll like that."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek on Green

QUOTABLE III: "That wasn't the problem at all. We weren't playing any defense."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks, pregame, denying that Thunder struggled because of the re-addition of Westbrook to the lineup

HOT: Durant has scored at least 25 points in 27 straight games. This ties for the second-longest such streak in the NBA in the last 25 years. Allen Iverson also had 27 straight in 2000-01. Durant has the longest such streak with 29 straight games in 2009-10. During this current stretch, entering this game, Durant had averaged 35.3 points on 52-percent shooting, including 37 percent 3-point shooting.

NOT: Besides KD and Westbrook, Serge Ibaka (18 points) was the only OKC starter to score.

GOOD MOVE: Hornacek went pretty much with an all perimeter line at times in the fourth quarter, then subbed in Markieff Morris with 4:40 left with the score tied at 116, to give the Suns at least some inside presence.

BAD MOVE: In a game with a razor-thin margin, Brooks played non-scorer Perry Jones for 10:30, and got predictable results: zero points (and zero boards).

IN THE ARENA: The near sellout crowd of 17,816 was the most raucous in years, probably the loudest at least since the Suns' surprise run to the Western Conference Finals in 2010.

ROOKIE WATCH: For the second straight game, rookie Alex Len started at center, backed up by recent acquisition Shavlik Randolph. Season-long starter Miles Plumlee is out with a knee sprain, though -- in addition -- he has faded in recent weeks.

NOTABLE: Phoenix's Eric Bledsoe could return at any time for the Suns. He hasn't played since Jan. 2 because of knee problems and subsequent arthroscopic surgery. With the dual-point-guard combination of Dragic and Bledsoe, the Suns were 16-8. Without Bledsoe, they are 20-17. "Hopefully, it's seamless," said Hornacek, on how the Suns react to the upcoming return of star guard. ...Green's 41 points was the season high for any Suns' player. Dragic had scored 40 on Friday vs. New Orleans....Suns backup off guard Leandro Barbosa could be out for the rest of the season with a hand fracture suffered Tuesday night vs. the Los Angeles Clippers.... Westbrook was coming off the second-fastest triple double in NBA history. In 20:17, he rolled up 13 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds Tuesday vs. Philadelphia. With one more assist and one more board vs. the Suns, he would have had his second straight triple double.

UP NEXT: For the Thunder, Sunday @ Los Angeles Lakers, Tuesday vs. Rockets and Thursday vs. Lakers. For the Suns, Sunday @ Golden State, Monday @ Los Angeles Clippers and Wednesday vs. Cavaliers.
