OKC Thunder Win 5th In-A-Row

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder win their fifth straight Wednesday night, 95-85 over New Orleans.  It's OKC's tenth win of the season.

It's been a pretty grueling 12-games so far.  They've played only one game that wasn't part of a back-to-backer.  Their game against the Hornets was their fifth game in six days.

The guys seemed a little tired early on.  Emeka Okafor hit a jumper that gave New Orleans an 8-0 lead.

Then the Oklahoma City bench jump started the Thunder.  James Harden had 14-points.  Nick Collison added 8.

Kevin Durant shined in New Orleans with his third straight double-double.  He had 29-points and 10-rebounds.  Russell Westbrook was also in double figures with 22.

The Thunder improve to 10-2 on the season and host the New York Knicks on Saturday at 7:00pm.
