Kevin Durant returns, leads Thunder past Grizzlies 112-94

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant had 26 points and a season-high 17 rebounds after missing the previous game with a sprained right big toe, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-94 on Wednesday night.

Durant, who began the day as the NBA's No. 3 scorer, broke loose for 17 points in the second half on 7-for-8 shooting. He played 33 minutes and appeared to have no problems with mobility.

Russell Westbrook added 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Thunder, who bounced back from Monday's loss to Sacramento without Durant.

Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley sat out with a sore left Achilles. Memphis coach Dave Joerger said before the game he didn't know how long Conley, the team's No. 2 scorer, would be out.

Mario Chalmers led the Grizzlies with 23 points.
