Behind Kevin Durant’s silky shot-making and Russell Westbrook’s aerial fury, the OKC Thunder notched their fifth straight win Tuesday night in Denver.
The superstar duo combined for 57 points in the 110-104 victory against the Nuggets.
Per the AP:
Durant finished with 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Thunder, who won their fifth in a row despite hitting just 21 percent from 3-point range. […] “We got great shots tonight,” Durant said. “Cameron (Payne) missed four wide-open 3s, Dion (Waiters) missed two or three, I missed a couple, so we got great looks tonight. We can live with those.”
Westbrook scored 27 points and added 12 assists but fell five rebounds shy of another triple-double. He had two straight coming in and five on the season.
Enes Kanter had 25 points and eight rebounds, four offensive, to pick up some of the burden from Durant and Westbrook. […] “You know that KD and Westbrook are more than likely going to have good games. They’re superstars,” Denver forward Will Barton said. “But we can’t let the other guys do what they did tonight.”
