Recap: Oklahoma City vs. Milwaukee

Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Durant poured in 33 points to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assist, as the Oklahoma City Thunder cruised past the Milwaukee Bucks, 101-85, from Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Serge Ibaka totaled 17 points with 17 rebounds and three blocks for the Thunder, who snapped a brief two-game losing streak. Jeremy Lamb added 17 points off the bench, while Thabo Sefolosha contributed 14 points in the win.

"That was a shootout. I thought our offense was much better in the second half. We haven't shot the ball well in the last three games but we finally got going in the second half and passing is what woke us up. Everyone was sharing the ball," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks.

Luke Ridnour and O.J. Mayo each scored 16 points off the bench for Milwaukee, which lost its fifth straight game. Brandon Knight and Giannis Antetokounmpo each tallied 13 points in the loss with Antetokounmpo adding 11 rebounds.

Lamb hit a 3 with 3:46 to go in the third quarter and the Thunder outscored the Bucks 17-6 in the final three-plus minutes to grab a 77-62 lead heading to the fourth. Durant made three free throws with 0.4 seconds left after a Miroslav Raduljica foul to end the stanza.

"It got away in the third quarter. I thought defensively we had some breakdowns and against a good team you just can't do that," said Bucks coach Larry Drew. "Offensively our shot selection wasn't very good and we didn't move the ball very well."

Mayo scored eight straight points, including two consecutive 3-pointers as part of an 11-0 run that Ilyasova capped with a 3-ball. That had the Bucks within 81-75.

Lamb and Derek Fisher made back-to-back buckets to push the lead back to 10, 85-75, with just over eight minutes left.

The Bucks would get as close as seven from there as the Thunder extended the lead back to double digits the rest of the way.

Oklahoma led 14-10 after one quarter of play and 38-35 at the half.

Nothin' but Net: No one wins thanks to Taylor

Does Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor sound like an immensely bitter, jilted ex-spouse who took the low road, or a truth-teller, unafraid to shed light on a situation no one wants to believe?
