“It’s always tough playing back-to-backs no matter what, especially home and away,” said Durant, who leads the league in scoring.
“We played a tough, tough team last night and then playing a team that plays so hard, plays so well in this building, you know it’s going to be tough. So we just wanted to come out and play hard for 48 minutes tonight and we’ll rest up tomorrow.”
The Thunder wound up beating Indiana at its own game.
They dominated the Pacers (48-28) on the glass 53-31 and outplayed the NBA’s best defensive team.
