Durant pours in 35 as Wizards best Thunder

BY foxsports • November 21, 2009

Scott Brooks spent his first year as the Thunder's coach trying to turn Oklahoma City into a defensive-minded team.

While that's still a work in progress, at least he's made his team a winner.

Kevin Durant scored 35 points, Russell Westbrook added 26 and the Thunder had their highest-scoring output of the season in a 127-108 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.

"We have to get it straight: Our players understand that you get burned more times than not if you play this style of basketball with our group right now, where we are as a team," said Brooks, who finished his first 82 games with a 29-53 record. "We have to continue to get better defensively, but it was a good win."
