The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 109-97. Both teams were coming off of disappointing losses in their previous games. OKC had dropped a grueling overtime game to the Nuggets on Sunday, while the Clippers had lost to the Golden State Warriors (OKC's next opponent) on Martin Luther King Day. Both squads were looking to right the ship. The Thunder were able to ride their solid defense through three quarters and combined it with a strong offensive 3rd quarter in order to build a double-digit lead.
The Thunder were led by Kevin Durant, who led all scorers with 32 points off of 11-19 shooting, including 5-6 from 3-point range. Durant added 7 rebounds and 7 assists to his offensive totals and looked much more comfortable setting up his team's offense tonight. Durant was followed by his teammate Russell Westbrook, who scored 26 points while grabbing 4 rebounds and handing out 6 assists.
Thunder final score: OKC controls Clippers on the road, 109-97
