--F Kevin Durant only managed a season-low three field goals on 14 attempts Sunday night against Phoenix. He did knock down 11 free throws and scored 18 in the win.
On this night, though, the NBA's scoring leader relied on his teammates.
"Everybody chipped in (Sunday)," Durant said. "I did not start the game the way I wanted to. I still came out aggressive and Russell (Westbrook), Serge (Ibaka) and James (Harden) picked it up for me. It was a great win for us. We grinded it out."
--G Daequan Cook was a non-factor for much of the season, but he's found his way into the rotation over the last month and has contributed. He scored eight in 19 minutes in Sunday's OT win over Phoenix.
"It definitely makes us tougher," Cook said. "A lot of shots dropping against us, but it definitely brought us together knowing that we had to come together to get stops in order to win the game."
--F Serge Ibaka struggled in his first few starting assignments following the Jeff Green-Nenad Krstic trade to Boston, but he seems to be finding his stride. The second-year big man had 15 points, seven rebounds and four blocks Sunday against the Suns.
--C Kendrick Perkins (sprained knee) is expected to be out until at least mid-March.
--G Nate Robinson (knee surgery) is likely out until early-to-mid April.
