Recap


THUNDER 110, WARRIORS 87:
James Harden scored 15 of his 25 points in the second quarter and Oklahoma State continued its dominance over visiting Golden State with a blowout victory.

Kevin Durant had 23 points and 10 rebounds as Oklahoma City beat the Warriors for the third time in three weeks and improved to 11-1 at home.

Russell Westbrook added 18 points to help the Thunder hand Golden State its sixth consecutive defeat in Oklahoma City. Westbrook sprained an ankle late in the third quarter and did not return.

David Lee scored 23 points to lead five players in double figures for the Warriors, who dropped their second straight following a three-game winning streak.

Dorell Wright had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson each scored 11 for Golden State. Ellis hurt his knee in the final minute of the third, but the team said he could have returned.

Oklahoma City extended a 10-point halftime lead to 14 points in the opening moments of the second half.

The Warriors managed to hang around until Royal Ivey and Durant banged home back-to-back 3-pointers to extend the margin to 82-65 with 2:11 left in the third before turning it into a laugher in the fourth.

Golden State used an 11-0 spurt to take a 24-20 lead after one quarter, but Harden was 6 of 6 from the floor in the second quarter as the Thunder built a 12-point lead and carried a 58-48 cushion into halftime.

Lee, who had his second career triple-double earlier this month against the Thunder, tried to keep the Golden State close by scoring 11 of his 19 points in the second quarter, including nine straight at one point.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Durant made news throughout the day Friday. After he was unable to finish practice due to the illness, word came down that he was severing ties with longtime agent Aaron Goodwin. The CEO of Goodwin Sports Management, Goodwin negotiated Durant's five-year, $86 million contract with the Thunder prior to the 2010-11 season. Durant rakes in $24.5 million annually, according to Forbes Magazine, $9 million of which comes from off-the-court earnings.
