Kings coach Keith Smart said even though his team started off hot, the Thunder put his team away in the third quarter:
When you have an early lead against a very, very good team, it's not going to last long. ... John Salmons did a decent job on Durant to kind of slow him down in the first half and I thought that was why we were able to stay close in the game — and then we had a bunch of turnovers and some quick shots late in that first half.
The Kings will leave tonight for a six-game road trip, their longest of the year. They'll play the Denver Nuggets in the Mile High City tomorrow night at 6:00 p.m. PST.
