Notebook: Thunder 117, Nuggets 96


Randy Renner, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Mar 25, 2014 12:04 AM - Updated Tue Mar 25, 2014 12:04 AM

THE FACT: Kevin Durant, named today the NBA's Western Conference Player of the Week, scored at least 25 points for the 35th straight game. He's now just five games away from tying Michael Jordan's record of 40 straight 25-point games.

THE LEAD: The Oklahoma City Thunder (52-18) scored a season-high 72 points in the first half, Durant led all scorers with 27 points in just three quarters and by the time it was over the Thunder had their fourth straight win , a 117-96 dismantling of the short-handed Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets (32-39) were playing without six guys who sat out with injuries. Oklahoma City played without three starters Russell Westbrook (rest), Kendrick Perkins (groin) and Thabo Sefolosha (calf).

The Thunder had four other players, besides Durant's 27, in double figures led by Caron Butler who had 23 on 10-for-19 shooting. That's Butler's seventh 20+ point game this season and the most he's scored since signing with the Thunder.

Reggie Jackson had his second straight double-double with 16 points and 11 assists and Serge Ibaka had 15 for OKC.

The Nuggets had four players in double figures, led by point guard Ty Lawson's 25. Center Timofey Mozgov added 12 and Kenneth Faried and Randy Foye each dropped in 11.

The Thunder had things rolling their way at both ends of the floor, shooting 50.6 percent and holding Denver to just 39 percent.

QUOTABLE: "I really liked the way we came out on offense in the first quarter (41 points) with our passing and our spacing, our assists. And then in then in the second half we really locked down on defense."
-- Thunder head coach Scott Brooks

THE STAT: After allowing the Nuggets to score 58 first half points on 47.7 percent shooting, the Thunder turned that completely around in the second half when Denver managed to score only 38 points on just 27.3 percent shooting.

TURNING POINT: The Thunder jumped on the Nuggets early with a 41 point first quarter to lead by 17. They followed that up with a 31 point second quarter and OKC was on cruise control the rest of the way.

QUOTABLE II: "We never made them uncomfortable so they shot a high percentage from two and from three. Our defense was reacting to them instead of forcing the issue. Then we turned the ball over way too much (20 times) and that's just a recipe for disaster.
-- Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw

HOT: The Thunder hit four of their first six 3-pointers and finished the quarter at 62.5 percent overall and 6-for-8 (75 percent) from deep...OKC shot 59.6 percent in the first half overall and 7-for-11 (63.6 percent) on threes...Durant was 9-for-16 (22 points) in the first 24 minutes...Oklahoma City finished with 32 assists and 13 steals.

NOT: Durant started 1-for-5 (four points)...Denver shot just 38.5 percent in the first quarter and then shot even worse 27.3 percent in the second half.

INSIDE THE ARENA: The 150th consecutive sellout at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

GOOD MOVE: Brooks didn't let reporters in on the various factors involved in deciding which games of back-to-back sets point guard Westbrook will sit out but the decision to miss the Denver game was a good one. The Thunder didn't miss a beat with Jackson tonight and since the Mavericks overwhelmed the Thunder without Westbrook a few days ago it would be best to save him for Dallas this time.

ROOKIE WATCH: Thunder center Steven Adams started and played 23 minutes. He scored 10 points, grabbed six rebounds and stole the ball six times. Andre Roberson started and played 18 minutes. He scored two points, pulled down four rebounds and blocked two shots.

NOTABLE: The 72 points scored by the Thunder in the first half were the most OKC has scored in any half this season and also the most Denver has given up in any half.

UP NEXT: For the Nuggets: Wednesday @ San Antonio, Friday vs. San Antonio, Monday vs. Memphis. For the Thunder: Tuesday @ Dallas, Friday vs. Sacramento, Sunday vs. Utah.
