Kevin Durant led his squad with 37 points and eight rebounds en route to the Oklahoma City Thunder claiming their 46th victory of the season over the Boston Celtics last night at the TD Garden. The up and coming Thunder have now defeated every NBA team since moving the franchise to Oklahoma. The former Seattle Supersonics saved the C’s and current NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers for last to finally complete their goal. “We’ve grown up,” said Durant. “It means a lot for us. It gives us confidence.”
Rajon Rondo controlled the offense for Boston with 16 points, 11 assists and five steals. Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace split the scoring duties with 18 apiece despite falling short in the end. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers was upset after the game in regards to how the game was called, saying “it’s a tough one to swallow. A team shoots 34 free throws to our 17 on our home floor. I thought we were attacking and we just didn’t get to the line.”
The Celtics have a day to prepare before taking on the Houston Rockets this Friday. The first place Cleveland Cavaliers will then make their way to Boston Sunday afternoon. Oklahoma City is next set to matchup with the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.
