Despite a first half that went back and forth, the Oklahoma City Thunder jumped out by 11 in the third quarter, holding the Indiana Pacers' comeback off through the entire quarter, using a 9-0 run to open the fourth quarter to put the Pacers away for good, as Indiana scored just eight fourth quarter points. The Pacers were beat up on the glass tonight, allowing 15 offensive boards to the Thunder as part of a 53-31 advantage, which Oklahoma City weren't shy to turn into points.
The struggles of the Pacers in the fourth quarter when they settled for long jumpers hurt Indiana's chances at erasing a growing lead, as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook simply went to work, scoring 34 & 24 respectively. Roy Hibbert was huge for Pacers, scoring 22, as David West followed up with 17.
