Thunder Vs. Nuggets, Game 5: Durant Has 17, Score Tied 50-50 At Half

Kevin Durant is the only player in double figures, but otherwise Game 5 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Denver Nuggets has been an even affair.

With two quarters down and two to go, we’re tied at 50-50.

Durant has 17 points for the Thunder while Kendrick Perkins has 9 and James Harden has 8 off the bench.

For the Nuggets, Kenyan Martin has 8 points while three others have 7. Denver is spreading the ball around and has 13 assists to show for it (compared to OKC’s 9).

The Thunder are shooting 39% so far, which makes it impressive that they’re tied with the Nuggets, who are shooting 51%.

The only player with foul concerns is Nene Hilario with three. Otherwise this game should come down to who keeps a hotter hand in the second half.
