Durant recorded his first triple-double of the season in the 113-103 triumph.
"Kevin is a stat filler," Brooks told reporters. "He can do it all and he has the ability to have large scoring nights, rebounding, assists and steals and blocked shots. He's one of the few guys that can do that.
"That's what makes us a good defensive team, because he can guard not only his man, he can guard multiple positions."
The Thunder have lost just three of their 15 games this season.
