Well this one I think you credit to guts and heart and moxie and all that other good stuff fellas because that's what it took. And this was a game of runs and there was a stretch at which it looked like Portland -- just slowly but inexorably taking control of the ball game -- then a week yet. Through the end of regulation the thunder make some huge plays to tie the ballgame. When they made the huge plays defensively we talked about this at the very beginning of the game I'll look -- at. Overtime and winning this ballgame but that was about it you -- -- end of the local defensively. Left -- You saw this sequence there at the beginning of that -- goaltending call against LaMarcus all. But then there's the play that you have to move up eleven rebounds Westbrook none bigger than that one right there and give the ball back to have a career. We've -- I'll go to the basket and that's what Kevin Durant. Impact on the ball here. After all. But the winds up with a. Eight blocked shots in this ball game Durant with 33 points -- pocket with a double double Perkins with ten rebounds Westbrook with a double double. One VA eleven points and rebounds and also -- assistant. A word on the team's defense and you talked about it Aldridge winds up with a season high 39 points but he took 28 shots and there's always a danger and it seems to happen to the Blazers. That when a guy is that dominant you can knock the rescue team got rid. Well I think Scott Brooks did a wonderful job tonight because he allowed his team to guard -- LaMarcus Aldridge in the local single coverage he double teamed a couple of times and disrupted their offense but he understood that. High volume opportunities for Aldrich would yield low opportunities for everybody also -- played right into the hands of Scott Brooks game plan tonight. So enjoying this win and a very tough house in which to win the Blazers eleven and two on the year the thunder one of the better road teams but right back out tomorrow fellas.
