Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) – Kevin Durant had his worst offensive
outing in 175 games the last time the Thunder played the Timberwolves.

The star forward’s response in their latest meeting? Only his fourth career
triple-double.

Durant had 32 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high 12 assists Sunday and
Oklahoma City beat Minnesota 113-103 for its seventh straight win.

On the road Nov. 1, Durant was held to 13 points and the Thunder shot under 35
percent in a 100-81 loss to the Timberwolves, who led by as many as 34 and won
for just the third time in the last 17 meetings between the teams.

The Thunder shot 56.3 percent in this one, finished a 6-0 homestand and moved
to 8-0 at home this season. Russell Westbrook, who missed the first meeting
with Minnesota, scored 19 points two days after hitting a game-winning 3 to
beat Golden State, and Reggie Jackson had 18 off the bench.

Kevin Martin led Minnesota with 24 points and Nikola Pekovic scored 22 with 10
rebounds. Kevin Love added 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who
led by as many as 11 in the game but were blown out in a 35-20 fourth quarter.

Minnesota has lost six of its last eight overall.
