The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Westbrook led the Thunder with 27 points, followed by Durant with 26 points.
The Sixers kept it close throughout the first half, but the Thunder pulled away after that. Kevin Martin hit some big threes to help the cause, and Russell Westrbrook and Kevin Durant took over as usual.
Although the Sixers got the benefit of some early calls, getting to the line continues to be an issue. They got to the line just 8 times compared to the Thunder’s 27.
Philadelphia is usually a team that is good at taking care of the ball, but they committed 20 turnovers tonight. It is tough to win a game giving away the ball that much in the first place, but even more when you’re a team that struggles to score in the first place.
Nick Young sparked the Sizers with 21 points, but it wasn’t enough as the game was pretty much over halfway through the 4th quarter.
The Sixers fall to (15-19) as they travel to San Antonio for the last game of their tough road trip, while the Thunder improve to (25-7) and maintain the best record in the West.
