Recap


THUNDER 92, 76ERS 88: Kevin Durant had a game-high 23 points and Russell Westbrook had a double-double to lead Oklahoma City to its sixth straight victory over host Philadelphia.

Westbrook collected a season-high 13 rebounds, seven of them coming on the offensive end of the floor. The point guard also contributed 22 points to help Oklahoma City to its sixth straight win overall.

The Thunder dominated on the glass, outrebounding the Sixers 56-39.

After the Thunder built a 53-48 lead at the half, the Sixers started the third quarter on a 15-2 run to take a 63-55 lead.  Oklahoma City shot a miserable 2-for-20 from the floor and scored a season-low 10 points in the frame.

Philadelphia went ice cold in the fourth quarter, failing to score a field goal in a 5:32 stretch.

The Thunder took advantage with an 11-1 run late in the fourth quarter led by six points from Durant to take an 88-85 lead with 1:35 remaining. Durant and Westbrook calmly sunk some clutch free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.

Six Philadelphia players scored in double digits, led by Andre Iguodala and Jrue Holiday, who had 18 points apiece.

The Sixers have lost five of their last six games at home after winning 12 of their first 14 at Wells Fargo Center.
