Durant: ‘We’ve grown up’

Tonight’s win gave the Thunder a win over every other team in the NBA since the franchise moved from Seattle.

“It’s a big one for us,” said Jeff Green, who had 17 points in 39 minutes for the Thunder. “We won against a great team, with five or six All-Stars on it. It was a great one for us, especially with what we’re fighting for.”

What the Thunder are fighting for is playoff position, and with 8 games left in their season, they’ve got the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference in their sites. Before the season started, that thought would have been an impossibility.

“We’ve grown up,” said Thunder star Kevin Durant. “We’ve added a lot of different pieces since our first year, me and Jeff. So it’s good to come here and beat a team like Boston, a championship team.”
