The Sports NetworkJanuary 24, 2014 

Boston, MA ( - Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant missed Friday's 101-83 win over the Boston Celtics while resting his sore right shoulder.

Durant, who injured his shoulder during Wednesday's win over the Spurs, sat in the midst of a scoring tear.

Oklahoma City won its sixth straight game and first in franchise history with both Russell Westbrook (knee) and Durant out of the lineup.

The Thunder improved to 10-6 all-time without Durant.
