"Obviously we've had a lot of injuries and a lot of adversity, but we can't stop," Nash said. "We've got to keep fighting no matter what happens and try to turn this into something."
NOTES: Durant got his 13th technical foul of the season, three shy of an automatic one-game suspension. Durant, who was on the bench at the time, drew the technical after saying something to referee Joe Crawford as Derek Fisher returned to the sideline for a timeout after getting his own technical from referee Kevin Fehr. Fisher was arguing a personal foul called against Kendrick Perkins. "All I asked him verbatim was, 'Can I talk to you?' and he got me with one," Durant said. "The way the game was going, I'm sure he was just trying to control everything and make sure nothing outrageous would happen, I guess. Joey's a good ref, I respect him a lot, but hopefully that gets rescinded." ... Oklahoma City has not played a home game decided by less than 10 points since Dec. 28. The Thunder's last 12 wins at Chesapeake Energy Arena were by at least 16 points — and an average of 24.6 points. Their two losses were by 17 to Brooklyn and 10 to Miami. ... The NBA announced Tuesday that both teams will play preseason games overseas in the fall. Oklahoma City will face Fenerbahce in Istanbul and Philadelphia in Manchester, England. The Lakers will play Golden State twice, in Beijing and Shanghai. ... The Thunder led 71-55 after their highest-scoring first half of the season.
