OKLAHOMA CITY —
“Guys weren’t worried about shooting the ball,” Durant said. “We were worried about passing and finding the open shot. The second half the ball got sticky.”
Spearheaded by Vucevic and Nelson, Orlando closed the gap to 92-84 with 30 seconds left in the third. But Westbrook hit a 3-pointer to close out the period and stem the Magic tide. The Thunder went up 95-84 heading into fourth.
“We made plays when we needed to and of course we are still growing,” Durant said. “But I’m not disappointed in a win. We never try and take those for granted because I remember when we weren’t winning games.”
