Covers Preview - With or without reigning MVP Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder look to continue their surge Sunday when they host the New Orleans Pelicans. The Thunder won for the eighth time in nine games when Russell Westbrook had 31 points and 10 assists in a 104-103 victory against the Lakers as Durant rested a sore ankle. The Pelicans, trying to establish themselves as a playoff contender, were embarrassed 114-88 at home Saturday against Portland, which was coming off a triple-overtime win Friday.
