THUNDER 94, NETS 85  2009-01-29
The estimated 5,000 fans who braved icy roads witnessed a noteworthy win Monday night at the Ford Center.

The Thunder no longer owns the NBA's worst record.

Oklahoma City's 94-85 romp over New Jersey moved the Thunder past the Washington Wizards.

"That feels good," said Kevin Durant. "But we can't worry about other teams. As long as we keep getting better, that's the biggest thing."

Oklahoma City, 7-6 since New Year's Eve, is tied with Sacramento for 28th in the 30-team NBA. The Thunder (10-35) also is closing in on the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis, which visits the Ford Center on Wednesday night.

"I don't think people realized we weren't the only team that was struggling," said Jeff Green. "For us being in a new city, I think we were an easy target. We stuck together and have been in the gym every day trying to get better."

The final score was misleading. The Thunder built a 30-point lead, its largest all season. Reserves from both teams were playing it out before the Nets whittled Oklahoma City's 88-58 lead to 89-82. It got so hairy that Durant checked back in with 1:03 left in the game.

"Obviously, we would have liked to have finished off the game better, but it was a great win," said coach Scott Brooks. "Their fourth-quarter comeback spoiled how hard we played for three quarters."
