The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Sixers on Saturday night despite a hard-fought effort from the out-matched Philly squad. The Sixers kept the score close throughout most of the game. Final score: Thunder 103, Sixers 91.
Kevin Durant, who missed Friday night's game against the Celtics, returned to action and certainly didn't show any lingering effects of injury. Durant led the way for the Thunder earning a triple-double: 32 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. It was the 10th straight game where Durant has scored at least 30. Filth. Serge Ibaka pitched in with 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 blocks.
A number of Sixers hustled their butts off but James Anderson led the team in scoring with 19 points. Evan Turner put up 15 points on 4-11 shooting while dealing with a minor back injury that caused him to briefly leave the game. Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams had his moments (see: a sexy AND1 floater and a swatted Kendrick Perkins shot) but didn't put together much of a complete game.
The Sixers fall to 14-30 on the season. Full recap to come later.
