New York: Oklahoma City and Memphis continued their impressive starts to the NBA season with hard-fought wins on Tuesday while the Miami Heat suffered a shock defeat by a Washington team that went into the game with a 1-13 record.
Oklahoma City Thunder seemed to be making light work of a seemingly difficult assignment away to the Brooklyn Nets when they cruised to a 16-point lead. However Brooklyn rallied and whittled the gap down to just two points, only for the Thunder to steady and notch a 117-111 win.
Kevin Durant scored 32 points and Russell Westbrook had 25 points and nine assists as Oklahoma City brought up a sixth straight victory. They also became the first team in 15 years to pass 100 points in 10 straight games.
