Thunder Vs. Nuggets Score: Oklahoma City And Denver Tied At 83 After Three Quarters

After the Denver Nuggets got out to a 58-53 half-time lead in Oklahoma City, the Thunder, in particular SF Kevin Durant and PG Russell Westbrook, responded in the third quarter.

The two combined for 24 of Oklahoma City's 30 points in the third:

Denver, meanwhile, was able to keep pace with Oklahoma City's offensive explosion, which included a 12-0 run to start the half, thanks to a late run from their second unit that tied the score at 83.

PG Andre Miller turned back the clock with one of his best efforts of the year, with 17 points on 7-12 shooting and 7 assists so far.

The game has been played at the Nuggets pace, as both teams have been racing the ball up the court, combining for enough highlights to fill up the entire Top 10 on Sportscenter.

But as the fourth quarter begins, the question will be whether the Thunder try to slow the tempo and use their superior half-court scoring to put away Denver at home.
