Russell Westbrook (30 points, 12 assists, 9 rebounds) and Kevin Durant (26 points, 10 assists) led the OKC Thunder to a come-from-behind 122-112 win Sunday night against the visiting Denver Nuggets.
Enes Kanter chipped in 21 points, including 11 in a five-minute span that broke things open.
The Thunder rallied from an 11-point second half deficit.
Per the AP:
Russell Westbrook had 30 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds, just missing what would have been his fourth triple-double of the season, as the Thunder rallied from an 11-point, second-half deficit. […] Durant recorded his eighth double-double of the season with 26 points and 10 assists for the Thunder, who have won 10 of their last 12 games but were coming off a Christmas Day loss at home to the Chicago Bulls.
“Kanter was their MVP tonight,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “He dominated us. Every time we play this team, he dominates us. We just have to get in the weight room and get a little bit stronger.”
Kenneth Faried had 25 points and 11 points for the Nuggets, who have lost five of their last six games. Denver has lost six straight trips to Oklahoma City. […] “We didn’t defend at all tonight,” Malone said. “Our offense was terrific, but that is a losing proposition if you try to outscore the Thunder on their home court with the firepower they have. We left our defense in the locker room at halftime.”
