Durant, Westbrook lead Thunder over Kings

Posted by rc360 on April 12, 2011

The Sacramento Kings knew they had a tough team in store when the Oklahoma City Thunder stormed into the Power Balance Pavilion. The Thunder were guaranteed to finish with at least the fourth seed in the Western Conference and weren’t holding back their all-stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook..

It wasn’t a sellout like many of the fans supporting Here We Stay Night 2 intended, but 15,683 fans came in to see the game.

Even though the Kings owned one of the worst records in the NBA and they were playing without Tyreke Evans because of a sprained left ankle the day before, the Kings would prove to be no pushovers.

Both teams never led by more than six points in the first half and shot over 50 percent for the half. The Kings led 57-51 at the end of the half, but the game was about to get chippy.

While the game was noticeably more physical, the Kings shot 23.1 percent from the floor while the Thunder shot 68.4 percent. Even with the Thunder shooting better by a 45.3 percent differential, the Kings only trailed by four points heading into the final quarter.
