Nuggets Vs. Thunder Score: OKC Keeping Denver At Bay

After making a small run in the second quarter, the Denver Nuggets weren't able to cut any further into the Oklahoma City Thunder lead in the third. OKC still leads by 15, up 81-66 heading into the final period. The way these teams play a change in momentum could happen at any moment, but so far the Thunder have been able to maintain control.

It's hard to pick a specific standout for OKC, with Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, James Harden and Serge Ibaka all having scored in double figures. Oklahoma City has dominated the boards throughout the night, 43 to 23, so let's go with Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins, who've combined for 21 boards.

Ty Lawson and Raymond Felton lead Denver with 14 points apiece.
