Depsite 12 points and 16 rebounds from F Kris Humphries, the New Jersey Nets were unable to keep pace with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night and fell 84-74 at home.
Kevin Durant, the reigning NBA scoring champion, dropped 20 points to go along with a season-best 15 rebounds, and the Thunder captured their 13th win of the season.
The Nets, who had won two of their last four games, fall to 1-5 at the Prudential Center, and PG Deron Williams missed 13 of his 18 shots from the field. He finished with just 14 points and six assists on the night, and the Nets scored less than 20 points in each of the first three quarters.
Next up for the Nets is a home game tomorrow evening against the Charlotte Bobcats, before they travel to Chicago for their third game in three nights to take on the Bulls.
