Durant's triple-double does in Wolves

The Wolves looked like they were in good position to win their second straight down south after beating Dallas Saturday, but Oklahoma City superstar Kevin Durant had other ideas.

With Minnesota up 5 going to the fourth quarter, Durant hit two 3s to lead a 16-5 run to open the final period for the Thunder, and they didn't look back on the way to a 113-103 win.

Durant finished the game with 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 12 assists, his first triple-double of the year.

Defense once again let the Wolves down, as OKC hit on 56 percent of their field goals including nine 3-pointers. The 113 points is the fourth-most Minnesota has given up this year, and the 12th time they've let an opponent over 100 on the season.

Offense continues to click for the Wolves, as they went over 100 again and sit at third in the league in scoring, but they got just 20 fourth quarter points while being outscored by 15 in the last 12 minutes.

The Wolves were led by Kevin Martin's 24 points, but he, Kevin Love, and Corey Brewer shot a combined 15 of 44 from the field.

Oklahoma City is now 12-3 on the year and remains undefeated at home, while the Wolves drop below .500 for the second time in five days, coming out of Sunday with a 9-10 record.

Minnesota returns to the hardwood Wednesday against San Antonio in Mexico City, part of the NBA's Global Games series.
