Kevin Durant scored 36 points, Russell Westbrook added 32 in his fourth career triple-double and the Oklahoma City Thunder fought off the Orlando Magic 125-124 Thursday night for their fourth straight win.
Westbrook also had 13 assists and 10 rebounds in Oklahoma City's
highest-scoring game of the season. It was the second straight game
the Thunder set a season high for points in regulation, and this
time they even surpassed their output in a triple-overtime win
against New Jersey.
Dwight Howard led Orlando with 39 points and 18 rebounds, and
J.J. Redick made four 3-pointers and scored 18 points while leading
a failed fourth-quarter comeback.
The Magic, who had been surging following those blockbuster
trades that overhauled the roster, lost their second straight after
a nine-game winning streak.
