Kevin Durant scored a game-high 32 points with 12 rebounds, nine assists, and two steals to help lead OKC to a 112-101 win over the Clippers to tie the series at a game apiece.
Durant fell an assist shy of a triple-double and had he gotten there he and Westbrook would have become the only two teammates in NBA post-season history to have a triple-double in the same playoff game. Game 3 will be in Los Angeles on Friday.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
