Thunder rout Carmelo-less Knicks, 104-92

Kevin Durant scored 28 points, James Harden
added 24 off the bench and the Oklahoma City Thunder raced past the
New York Knicks 104-92 on Saturday night for their sixth straight
Russell Westbrook was on his way to his sixth career
triple-double with 21 points, eight rebounds and eight assists
before coach Scott Brooks pulled his All-Stars with Oklahoma City
leading by 30 points and nearly 3 minutes left in the third
New York played without Carmelo Anthony because of a sprained
right ankle and injured left wrist, but it was the Knicks' defense
that was missing.
West-leading Oklahoma City scored 70 points in the first half
and kept its starters on the bench throughout the fourth quarter
for the third straight home game won in a blowout.
