(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined to score 50 points as the Thunder dispatched the Sacramento Kings 104-95 to clinch the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
The win also gave the Thunder their first 60-win season since 1996, when they were known as the Seattle SuperSonics.
“To get 60 wins is quite an accomplishment,” Thuner coach Scott Brooks said. “We’ve come a long ways through the hard work our entire organization has put in.”
Center Cole Aldrich led the Kings (28-53) with 12 points and 13 rebounds.
The Thunder will play either the Los Angeles Lakers or the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs in the West.
