Oklahoma City is rolling as of the late. The Thunder own the best record in basketball and have won four in a row. On Monday night, in a 102-90 win against the Phoenix Suns, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 77 points, 13 less than the entire Suns team.
Westbrook had another outstanding performance on the floor with 36 points, eight rebounds and five assists. However, the attention Monday night went to Durant, who went for a game-high 41 points — the fourth time he has eclipsed that mark this year — off 15-of-30 shooting from the field.
That went along with five boards and one highlight that Marcin Gortat would like to forget.
With the Thunder up 13 with two and a half minutes to play, Durant drove past Michael Beasley at the top of the key and went right over Gortat for the slam and the foul. The best part, though, may have been Kendrick Perkins, who was enthused by Durant’s dunk. He decided to celebrate by slapping his teammate on both sides of his head before helping him to his feet.
