Recap


THUNDER 91, RAPTORS 75: Kevin Durant had a game-high 23 points and James Harden poured in 17 points off the bench as host Oklahoma City snapped its season-high three game losing streak.

After the Thunder built a 50-43 lead at the half thanks to 14 points from Durant, Toronto lost forward Andrea Bargnani for the entire second half because of tightness in his left calf. The team's leading scorer netted seven points and five rebounds in the first half.

Toronto fell apart without Bargnani, failing to score a field goal in an 8:56 span beginning midway through the third frame. The Thunder capitalized with a 24-0 run led by eight points from Harden to take an 82-55 lead early in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma City was able to rest its starters for the remainder of the contest.

Raptors guard Jose Calderon suited up despite having a swollen right eye, netting a team-high 19 points and adding six assists.

Both clubs were playing the first game of a back-to-back. The Thunder travels to Milwaukee and the Raptors head to Indiana on Monday.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Oklahoma City managed to clinch the Northwest Division title for the second year in a row when Denver lost to Golden State on Saturday. … The Raptors have dropped seven of nine on the road against teams with winning records. … The Thunder improves to 7-0 in Sunday contests.
