OKC supporting cast also stepped up in Game 2 vs Clippers
Kevin Durant famously thanked his teammates Tuesday upon winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award. Durant’s teammates thanked him back Wednesday night in the best way possible.
Durant was his usual phenomenal self, and Russell Westbrook was fantastic, too. But the Thunder popped the Clippers 112-101 with ease because the Thunder cornerstones had help. And lots of it.
Thabo Sefolosha, banished to the ranks of DID NOT PLAY, COACH’S DECISION, only two games ago, scored nine points in a seven-possession span in which the Thunder blew open the game.
Kendrick Perkins was a beast, outscoring and outrebounding Clipper center DeAndre Jordan.
Serge Ibaka outplayed Blake Griffin.
