The Wolves main man Kevin Love was out of action with a mild concussion but the Wolves still put up a good fight against one of the NBA title favourites. All the previous games have been closely fought this season but in this one it was Durant that secured the win. it was Durant and Westbrook who combined to score 78 points last night as Minnesota were led by their bench. Michael Beasley with 26 points and Anthony Rudolph with 22 points.
OKC coach Scott Brooks: “Every game (against Minnesota) is close. It’s an overtime game or a last-two minute game. They play with a lot of confidence against us. Give them credit. They shot the ball well.”
Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman: “You’ve got to give our guys a lot of credit. We played with a lot of energy tonight. That’s a great team with two great players, and we competed the whole time.”
