Durant overcomes Love in overtime thriller

Kevin Durant had career highs of 47 points
and 18 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame a 31-point,
21-rebound night from Kevin Love to beat the Minnesota
Timberwolves, 118-117, in overtime on Wednesday night.
Jeff Green had 19 points and eight rebounds for the Thunder, who
beat Minnesota for the eighth straight time. But it was Durant who
carried the load, scoring 16 straight points for the Thunder in the
fourth quarter of a thrilling back-and-forth game.
Durant's 47 points tied Clippers star Blake Griffin for the
highest total in the NBA this season.
Michael Beasley had 30 points, nine rebounds and seven assists
for the Timberwolves, who had a chance to win the game in the final
7 seconds. But Luke Ridnour rushed a 3-pointer after a missed free
throw by Corey Brewer.
