The Oklahoma City Thunder smoked the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night, beating them 120-95 and continuing to roll through January without the help of the injured Russell Westbrook.
Kevin Durant’s 30-point game streak is officially over at 12 straight games, but against the Nets, he scored 26 points on 10-of-12 shooting in just 30 minutes. After that, Oklahoma City head coach Scott Brooks pulled him, and Durant sent for all of the fourth quarter.
His streak may be over, but the Thunder’s 10-game winning streak roars on.
Serge Ibaka also had an incredible night, hitting all 12 of his shots for 25 points, in addition to nine boards. Reggie Jackson and Thabo Sefalosha each added 14 more points.
Earlier this month, the Nets held Kevin Durant to 24 points and generally played well against Oklahoma City. This time around however, they didn’t stand a chance.
For Brooklyn, Shaun Livingston lead with 16 points, four boards and three steals. Paul Pierce added 10 more points, and Deron Williams came off the bench to put up 14 more.
Oklahoma City shot 63.6 percent on the night, the highest in the league this season. The Thunder also out-rebounded Brooklyn 41-17 and for the Nets, that figure is the lowest in NBA history.
With the win, OKC has now won six straight road games. The Thunder advance to 38-10 on the season while Brooklyn falls to 20-24.
The Thunder next play the Washington Wizards on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. ET.
