Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter as the Oklahoma City Thunder Antworten

Mark Grace Jersey .com) - Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter as the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied for a 99-94 victory over the Utah Jazz. Six of Durants total came during a pivotal 10-1 run that turned a six-point deficit into a 94-91 lead with two minutes remaining, helping the Thunder bounce back from consecutive lopsided road defeats to Golden State and Sacramento. Russell Westbrook came up big for Oklahoma City as well, racking up 25 points and 12 assists, while newly acquired Dion Waiters put up 15 points off the bench in his second game with the Thunder. Its a lot different, Im able to play, Waiters said. Utah, fresh off a 20-point triumph at Eastern Conference power Chicago on Wednesday, received 27 points from Gordon Hayward and 22 from Derrick Favors. Trey Burke added 20 points in the loss, with Favors finishing with 11 rebounds. Im proud of our team, I thought we didnt make anything easy for them, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. Trailing nearly the entire third quarter and down 90-84 with under 4 1/2 minutes to play, the Thunder finished strong as Durant carried his team on his back. The reigning league MVP sank a reverse layup and Westbrook followed with a jumper before Durant knocked down a contested step-back shot to tie the game with 3:19 left. After Favors was whistled for a travel on the ensuing possession, Durant struck again by hitting a tough turnaround jumper to send Oklahoma City in front. Favors hit 1-of-2 free throws on the other end to bring Utah back within one. However, Haywards pass on the Jazzs next trip was stolen by Westbrook and led to a Waiters fastbreak jam that put the Thunder up 94-91 with 2:10 to go. Burke answered with a pair of foul shots, but Utah came up empty its next time down the court and Durant kicked the ball out on the following possession to Waiters, who drained a 3-pointer that all but sealed the outcome with 23 seconds remaining. After both teams shot the ball well during an opening quarter that ended in a 27-27 tie, the Jazz began the second on an 8-0 run capped by consecutive 3- pointers from Elijah Millsap. Utah stayed ahead through the remainder of the half, though Oklahoma City cut the lead to 41-40 behind an 11-4 push. Burke countered with five straight points to help the Jazz enter the break holding a 50-44 advantage. The Thunder fought back to draw even at 60-60 midway through the third quarter, and the Jazz held a slim 76-74 edge entering the fourth before later extending the margin to 85-78 with eight minutes left. Game Notes Oklahoma City had been 1-13 this season when trailing after three quarters ... The loss was Utahs eighth straight at Chesapeake Energy Arena, where it hasnt prevailed since Oct. 31, 2010 ... The game was the 500th behind the bench for Thunder head coach Scott Brooks ... Utah center Rudy Gobert recorded seven blocks and has 21 over his last four outings ... Favors reached the 20- point mark for a third consecutive game. Kosuke Fukudome Jersey . Scotlands Greg Laidlaw made one of two penalty kicks and all three conversions, and Stuart Hogg added a try in the second half. "The most important thing to come out of the game is that we did not get scored against," Laidlaw said. Addison Russell Jersey .500 were once common achievements for the Dallas Mavericks. Now, both are season highs as Dallas slowly works its way back into playoff contention in the Western Conference. . The result means Atletico Madrid now tops the table, with Madrid level on points in second and Barcelona a point behind in third with nine games remaining as the title race shapes up to be the closest in years.The stats speak for themselves. Marty Brodeur had an amazing career anyway you want to slice it. Its always a personal preference as to who people believe is the best of all time. The one thing that is certain, Brodeurs name is in that conversation. Some will speak to Dominik Hasek, for what he was able to do team-wise and achieve personally, while some will look at Patrick Roy, who is the winningest goaltender in the postseason and who also revolutionized the position with the butterfly save. Some older than this generation will throw names like Terry Sawchuk or Vladislav Tretiak around. Im not sure there is a right or wrong answer. It becomes a personal preference, with caveats of when they played as far as generations, who you value more for their style, or even a like ability factor may weigh in on an opinion. There are many things I loved and respected about Brodeur as a goalie. Here are a few things that stood out for me: Durability - To play 1,266 games is insane. That number is a monster and speaks to the consistency of Marty and how he was able to play 70-plus games a year for 20-plus seasons (throw in a couple of lockouts/work stoppages and the number is bigger). I believe that record will never be broken, especially with the way goalies play today. Its so hard on the body. With flexibility and lateral movement at a premium, the stress on the knees, hip flexors and groins, it will be tough to have a run of that many years in a row playing 65-plus games a season. To put it into perspective - the 1,266 regular season games - the closest to Marty of active goalies is Roberto Luongo. He is 35-years-old and has played 840 games, so if he averages 65 games for the next six-and-a-half years, he can come close to Brodeur at age 42. This is given that he is healthy (knock on wood) and wants to play that long. Lets look at someone younger. Carey Price is 27-years-old and has played 405 games. It would take him playing 65-plus games a year for the next 13.25 years to come close to the record - something that in todays game would be very tough to achieve given all the factors involved. The list goes on from there, with names like Fleury (569 GP), Lundqvist (610 GP) and Miller (594 GP). All goalies that have played a ton and have been for the most part pretty healthy in their careers, their numbers are great from a durability standpoint but nothing in comparison to what Marty was able to achieve for many years in a row. Rebound Control - One of the first things I noticed when I played against him or watched him was his rebound placement. He was unreal at putting pucks in
