Thunder vs. Nets final score: Oklahoma City holds off Brooklyn, 117-111

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder picked up their 15th win of the season Tuesday night in Brooklyn.

Victorious for the sixth straight game, the Oklahoma City Thunder picked up a pivotal 117-111 win over Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night at the Barclays Center.

Led by 32 points from All-Star forward Kevin Durant, the Thunder shot an impressive 60.6 percent from the field as a team and made seven of 14 attempts from behind the three-point line. Oklahoma City's shooting accuracy on Tuesday ended up carrying over to the foul line as well, as Scott Brooks' players finished the evening with a sparkling 88.2 percent mark from the charity stripe on 34 attempts.

Williams posted a game-high 33 points of his own to lead the Nets, but was unable to contain Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook down the stretch to overcome the deficit. Westbrook chipped in 25 points and nine assists to boost his season averages, despite turning the ball over five times for the fourth consecutive game. Now with a comfortable lead in the Northwest Division due to their current streak, the Thunder will next hit the court on Friday night against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
