Durant defers to others in OKC's win over Washington

(Continued)

Notes: Among those in attendance was Oklahoma State basketball coach Travis Ford, who had one of the nation's top freshmen this season in Marcus Smart. Smart hasn't declared yet if he'll enter the upcoming NBA draft. Ford spoke briefly with Thunder general manager Sam Presti . Wittman, an Indiana product, was critical of former Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson before the game. When asked about the Hoosiers' success thus far in the NCAA tournament, Wittman called it "really gratifying" and said Indiana has recovered from NCAA sanctions imposed for violations that occurred during Sampson's time as coach. Wittman said Indiana had "a rich tradition that was built up over 30, 40, 50 years and in the matter of 18 months, it was torn completely down." Sampson is now an assistant coach with the Houston Rockets . Washington has won 14 games this season against Western Conference foes, the most for the Wizards since winning 14 during the 2006-07 season . The Thunder recorded their 51st straight regular-season sellout at Chesapeake Energy Arena, with 37 of those this season . Backup guard Derek Fisher scored two points in 14 minutes of action for Oklahoma City, his first points in five games.
