No Love for Durant

No Love for Durant

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder broke a two game losing streak with a 115-111 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.  As expected the two Kevin's,  Durant and Love, led the way for the Thunder ant T-Wolves respectively. 

Despite a 3-10 start,  Kevin Durant scored an NBA season high 48 points and grabbed seven rebounds while Kevin Love led Minnesota with 30 points 14 rebounds and 5 assists.  Nikola Pekovic was also a handy tool for Minnesota with 31 points and 11 rebounds.

The win almost didn't happen in regulation when Thunder center Kendrick Perkins fouled Love while he was shooting a three pointer in the closing seconds.  That put Love at the free throw line for three shots and a chance to tie the game at 114 all but Love missed the first two free throws and the third intentionally.

The win raises OKC's record to 25-7.  They will host Boston Sunday night at 6:00.
