OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Basketball didn't matter much to Kevin Durant on Thursday night.

Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams' wife, Ingrid, was involved in a car crash Tuesday night in Oklahoma City and died Wednesday. Monty Williams coached the Pelicans last season before coming to Oklahoma City to help new coach Billy Donovan, so as his two most recent teams met, both played with heavy hearts. A moment of silence was observed before the Thunder's 121-95 victory.

Durant was distraught earlier in the day while discussing the situation after the team's shootaround, and he said it remained fresh in his mind after the game.
