Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Kevin Durant filled the stat sheet with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame a late Atlanta charge to top the Hawks 101-92 from Philips Arena.
Paul Millsap and Shelvin Mack drained consecutive triples for a four-point margin with 3:28 remaining. Mack then cut it to 95-92 with a jumper with two minutes left, but Russell Westbrook went to his left hand on a reverse layup on the other end and Durant made 4-of-4 from the foul line to put it away.
Westbrook scored 14 points with 11 assists for OKC, winners in three straight and 11 of 12. Serge Ibaka added 19 points and 10 boards.
Rivers excited for Boston return
By Jim Brighters, NBA Editor
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Boston Celtics have won 17 NBA Championships in their storied history.
Only six men have coached a Celtics championship team. Names like Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, K.C. Jones and Tommy Heinsohn are in the Hall of Fame and icons in the city of Boston, a city with its fair share of sports legends.
Doc Rivers is one of those six men to guide the Celtics to a title.
That should get him iconic status in Beantown, but there was a little bit of acrimony in this divorce. Rivers didn't want to stick around for G.M. Danny Ainge's rebuilding plan, so the Celtics traded him for a first-round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers this past offseason.
