Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2009-01-07
Kevin Durant wants to be to in pressure situations, so when one arose against Denver, the Thunder's franchise player was ready. Down by one in the final seconds, Durant took an inbounds pass from Jeff Green and nailed a three-pointer.

"I told myself I wanted the ball," Durant said. "I wanted to hit the game winner. It was a great play and a very good pass. I turned and shot it and it went in."

If only Oklahoma City could have make its one-point lead stand up for the remaining 2.7 seconds. Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony drilled a matching three-pointer at the buzzer for the win.

Still, Thunder players and coaches weren't discouraged with the loss. Denver is the Northwest Division leader and a top playoff contender in the Western Conference.

"As a team, we played an all-around good game," guard Russell Westbrook said. "If it takes buzzer-beaters to beat us, then it does. We just have to come out and keep getting after it."

Thunder coach Scott Brooks added: "We are going to continue, to work, get better and learn from this. We've got a locker room full of guys who believe in this team."

THUNDER 107, KNICKS 99: Fellow forwards Kevin Durant and Jeff Green each scored 27 points as Oklahoma City knocked off New York at home Tuesday night. The Thunder improved to 5-30.

Durant added 12 rebounds for the Thunder, which shot 53 percent and enjoyed as much as a 23-point lead. Russell Westbrook chipped in with 22 points and nine assists. Desmond Mason scored 13.

Al Harrington led the Knicks (13-20) with 21 points and Chris Duhon added 18. David Lee had 14 points and 13 rebounds. New York beat the Thunder by 10 in November.
