Thunder pound Nets; Durant's streak comes to an end
Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Durant's streak of 30-plus points finally came to an end at 12 games, but Durant, Serge Ibaka and the Oklahoma City Thunder still left Barclays Center with a 120-95 rout of the Brooklyn Nets on Friday.
Durant scored 22 points on 8-of-9 shooting in the first half but put up just three shots the rest of the way, sitting the entire fourth quarter with the game well in hand. He finished with 26 points and seven assists, completing January as the first player since Michael Jordan in March, 1987, to record at least 550 points and 90 assists in a month.
Ibaka meanwhile shot 12-of-12 from the floor for 25 points, falling just two shots shy of Gary Payton's Thunder/SuperSonics franchise record of 14 shots without a miss on Jan. 5, 2005.
Reggie Jackson and Thabo Sefolosha added 14 points apiece in Oklahoma City's 10th straight triumph.
Shaun Livingston had 16 points to pace Brooklyn, while Deron Williams netted 14 off the bench.
