Kevin Durant scored 25 points, Russell Westbrook added 22 and the Oklahoma City Thunder throttled the travel-weary Golden State Warriors 119-98 Wednesday night to win consecutive games for the first time in nearly three weeks.
Playing on the second night of a back-to-back, the Warriors didn't get settled in Oklahoma City until almost daybreak and it showed in the early going. The Thunder finally put it away with a 16-4 run to start the fourth quarter that featured 10 points from sixth man Kevin Martin.
That allowed coach Scott Brooks to go without Durant or Westbrook in the fourth quarter for the second straight game.
Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson had 19 points apiece for the Warriors.
