Thunder Beat Frigid-Shooting Nets

The Nets had been improving offensively ... until Saturday, when they shot 31 percent from the field, 3-for-23 from 3-point range, and turned the ball over 18 times in an ugly 84-74 loss to the Thunder.

Oklahoma City took control with an 11-0 run late in the first quarter and maintained a comfortable lead all night. They shot just 42 percent, but that was good enough, with the Nets unable to score more than 18 points in any of the first three periods.

Deron Williams and Marshon Brooks led the Nets with 14 points apiece, but they combined to shoot 11-for-35. Kris Humphries had 12 points and 16 rebounds, but was just 6-for-17 from the field. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 41 points for the Thunder.
