Their rotations were crisp all game, forcing 16 turnovers from a team that can kill you every time down the floor. The Thunder were held to a 6-of-24 shooting night from behind the arc and finished the game on 46.8 percent shooting overall.
Also going Boston's way was Paul Pierce, who scored 27 points (including four three-pointers) and turned back the clock with a wide array of moves on offense that left Thunder defenders in his dust.
Jason Terry pitched in with 16 loud points, including a three-pointer that barely beat the halftime buzzer and a game-clinching three-point dagger that all but sealed it in Boston's favor.
Jeff Green picked a great game to show that his preseason aggression wasn't a fluke, finishing with 17 points against his former team.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for 55 points, but it wasn't enough.
