Thunder throttle the Pacers

Durant outscores George in battle of MVP contenders

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

But the Thunder wouldn’t allow Indy to get any closer and the Pacers emptied their bench with 6:35 left in the fourth quarter.

“We don’t make excuses,” Pacers forward David West said. “We’ve struggled against them for the last couple of years now, and we just haven’t found a way to make it difficult for them. Durant is just a match-up problem when he gets going. He got going early, and too easy. He just took the game over.”
