WASHINGTON (AP) - Kevin Durant left at halftime with a strained left hamstring and Russell Westbrook took over, compiling a triple-double with 22 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Washington Wizards, 125-101 Tuesday night.
Durant, second in the NBA in scoring entering the night, had 14 points and 10 rebounds in the first half. With less than a minute remaining in the second quarter, Durant was fouled by Kris Humphries on a drive to the basket and then limped a bit, clutching at the back of his left leg.
The 2013-14 MVP made both free throws and stayed in the game until halftime.
Westbrook had 10 points, five assists and three rebounds in the third quarter and sat out the fourth.
