Sefolosha helps Thunder rout Phoenix 97-69Posted by Inside Hoops
When Oklahoma City faces Phoenix, the Thunder rolls.
Thabo Sefolosha made a career-high 5 of 7 3-pointers and the Oklahoma City Thunder routed the Phoenix Suns for the second game in a row 97-69 on Sunday night.
The 28-point blowout followed a 127-96 Thunder romp over the Suns in Oklahoma City on Friday night.
”We played the same as we did last time,” Russell Westbrook said. ”I think we did a good job of that, and maybe even better this time.”
Westbrook scored 24 points in 28 minutes in the Thunder’s 10th straight victory over Phoenix, the longest active streak for any Suns opponent.
Sefolosha added 20 points, two shy of his career high. Kevin Durant scored 18, 11 below his NBA-leading season average (29.1), in limited duty in the Thunder’s fourth straight win, none of them by fewer than a 21-point margin.
