Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-27

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-27
Kevin Durant's load is increasing and so is his production. The Thunder's leading scorer had 28 points against Atlanta on Tuesday, marking his career-high eighth straight game with at least 20 points.

With few alternatives, Scott Brooks sees no reason to keep the second-year small forward off the court. Durant went into Friday averaging 40.7 minutes in 11 December games, having logged at least 43 three of the previous five games.

Durant averaged 36.5 minutes in November. He doesn't seem bothered by the extra playing time, averaging 25.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.2 blocks in December.

"I'm still young," he said. "I can play all game. I tell (Brooks) when I'm tired and I tell him when I want to stay in the game.

"And he kind of pulls me out when I tell him. I'm glad I'm playing 38, 39 minutes a night. I like being on the floor helping my teammates out."

PISTONS 90, THUNDER 88: Allen Iverson hit an off-balance runner with 0.2 seconds left Friday night to lift Detroit past hard-luck Oklahoma City. The Thunder has lost its last six road games.

Kevin Durant had 26 points and eight rebounds for Oklahoma City. The Thunder were close all night, but weren't able to get over the hump again. Russell Westbrook scored 14 and Jeff Green added 11. Detroit has won the last eight against the Thunder franchise. Iverson led the Pistons with 22 points, and Tayshaun Prince added 16 points and 11 rebounds.
