The Nuggets have relied on a balanced offensive attack while Kevin Durant remains the scorer for the Thunder. The Nuggets led by nine points late in the quarter, but a late run by the Thunder, capped by an Eric Maynor three, made it just a three-point lead.
Nene leads the Nuggets with six point and four rebounds, but Kenyon Martin has been having a good all-around game as well. Martin added four points, pulled down three boards, dished the ball out for two assists and stole the ball twice. The bench has added 12 points. Wilson Chandler has two points on two free throws.
Kevin Durant leads the Thunder with 13 points while the rest of the team has 12 combined. Serge Ibaka has five of the team's blocks, but he also has four turnovers.
