Kevin Durant had 25 points and 11 rebounds, Jeff Green added 24 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder led from start to finish in a 102-89 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.
Oklahoma City hit 10 of its first 13 shots and built a
double-digit lead in the first 6 minutes of the game, then never
let Sacramento mount a serious comeback in Paul Westphal's debut as
Nenad Krstic added 20 points and Russell Westbrook had 14 points
and a career-high 13 assists for the Thunder.
Kevin Martin made all 14 of his free throw attempts in the first
half to keep Sacramento within striking distance, but had just
three points after halftime to finish with 27.
