Westbrook, Thunder coast past Suns, 107-97

Russell Westbrook scored 18 points, Daequan
Cook hit four 3-pointers in quick succession to help Oklahoma City
pull away in the first half and the Thunder led wire to wire in a
107-97 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.
The Thunder improved to 5-0 and remained perfect in four New
Year's Eve home games that have become a tradition since the
franchise moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City.
Two nights after hitting a buzzer-beating game-winner against
Dallas, Kevin Durant had only 12 points in his bid to become the
first player since Michael Jordan a quarter-century earlier to
score at least 30 in the first five games of a season.
Hakim Warrick and rookie Markieff Morris had 15 points apiece
for the Suns, who shot just 40 percent.
