The game started out looking like it would be a high scoring affair. It was exactly that! Just two minutes into the game the game was tied at 8. The Bobcats went on a 10-6 run to finish the quarter. Russell Westbrook picked up his 2nd foul with 37 seconds left in the first. With 3:21 to go in the second quarter Perkins picked up his third foul, the Bobcats were leading 23-19 at this point. With 2:04 left in the second the Bobcats were up 29-23. The Thunder then went on a 6-0 run to tie the game. The Thunder then took their third lead of the game at 31-29 with 52 seconds left in the second quarter.
The Bobcats won the third quarter 16-8 and Kendrick Perkins picked up his fourth foul with 1:20 left in the quarter. The Thunder made a game of it in the fourth. The Thunder came out and hit a 3 to cut the lead to 7 with 4:05 left. Perkins then picked up his fifth foul on the next possession and the Bobcats extended their lead to 52-43. The Bobcats held a 57-46 lead with 2:01 left and it looked like the Bobcats were doing everything right. Suddenly the Bobcats reverted to their old ways and allowed the Thunder to make 9-0 run. Martel Webster hit a free throw with 29 seconds left to make the score 58-55. The Thunder had the ball with 8 seconds left and the shot clock was off. The ball went to Durant and of course he kept backing up to the three point line in an attempt to hit a game tying three point shot. The Bobcats decided to put two big guys on him and Durant had no room to shoot. He passed the ball with less than a second left. After the game Durant said he was the reason the Thunder lost.
Odd Stat. Durant may have been right as he was 6-15 from the field despite leading all scores.
