After earning a 106-90 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder extended their win streak to an NBA-long six games. OKC has now won 10 of 12 games overall. The Thunder is now a perfect 8-0 this season at home against Western Conference opponents.
Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 24 points in just 29 minutes of action. Efficiency ended up being the name of the game for Durant. After scoring just nine points on four attempts in the first half, Durant flipped the switch and had 15 points on 10 attempts in the third quarter. Durant had to be patient in the opening quarter of the Thunder’s previous game as he scored just two points. Once again, he had to be patient as he was openly frustrated with the way the game was being officiated. He was called for his second technical foul of the season after he lifted his arms in the air in the first quarter as he felt he was fouled on a shot attempt and a foul was not called.
