The Thunder had a 13-point lead heading into the fourth quarter against the Sacramento Kings last night, but almost let their opponents back into the game, which finished 97-95.
The Western Conference player of the month told reporters: "We can't ever take a win for granted. It's hard to win in this league. We won the game, that's all that matters."
Head coach Scott Brooks added: "We have to play better tomorrow night. We're playing one of the hottest teams in the game right now. They have a great home crowd and have a great atmosphere. But our team has always been up for challenges and definitely tomorrow night will be a tough challenge for us."
The Thunder face the Portland Trail Blazers later today.
