The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Indiana Pacers haven't faced each other since early December, but the Thunder were able to cruise to a 118-94 blowout win to show one of the best of the Eastern Conference that they might not be able to deal with the best from the West. The Thunder shot 61% from the field in the game and were also able to make 19 of their 20 free throw attempts.
Right from the start of the game, the Pacers just couldn't handle the Thunder on offense or on defense. Oklahoma City outscored the Pacers in every quarter, but their early dominance is what helped them get the big win. They put up 56 points in the first half, while holding Indiana to just 37. The rest of the game was all about maintaining the big lead that they already had created.
MVP favorite Kevin Durant was the Thunder's best player yet again, scoring 36 points, bringing down 10 rebounds and dishing out five assists. Point guard Russell Westbrook was also on his game in the matchup, putting up 26 points and adding 13 assists in the win.
The only player on the Pacers who had a solid game was All-Star Paul George, who had 32 points, five rebounds and three steals in the losing effort. Indiana shot just 40% on the night and their normally stout defense just couldn't contain the Thunder's best players that night.
