The Oklahoma City Thunder put their foot on the gas right away and haven't let up, taking a 23-point lead over the Boston Celtics into the break. The Thunder started off red hot and remained that way throughout the half, shooting 56.5 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from beyond the arc. It all added up to 72 first-half points and a game that's teetering on the edge of a blowout.
It's been a four-man show for the Thunder, with Kevin Durant leading the way thus far. Durant's 16 points lead all scorers through the first 24 minutes, but a few of his teammates are close behind. James Harden added 15 first-half points off the bench, Russell Westbrook chipped in 14 and Daequan Cook completed the counting exercise with 13 points.
For the Celtics, Kevin Garnett was the only player to crack double-figures in the first half, scoring 15 points. Ray Allen added nine points, with Avery Bradley and Mickael Pietrus each scoring eight points in the half.
