Recap


Thunder 114, Bobcats 69:
Kevin Durant scored 18 points to lead six Thunder players in double figures and Oklahoma City continued its dominance over visiting Charlotte with a blowout victory.

Thabo Sefolosha added 14 points and Hasheem Thabeet collected 13 and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, who have won four straight against the Bobcats and have never lost to them at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Rookie Jeffery Taylor was the only Charlotte player in double figures with 10 points. The Bobcats shot 29.1 percent from the field in losing by the widest margin in franchise history. The previous mark was a 44-point defeat at Portland last season. 

Oklahoma City led 64-24 at intermission and played its starters only sparingly in the second half. No Thunder starter saw more time than Durant's 26 minutes. The margin of victory and points allowed both set Oklahoma City records.

Russell Westbrook had 12 points and 11 assists in 22 minutes for the Thunder. Kevin Martin added 12 points off the bench and fellow reserve Reggie Jackson scored 11.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Charlotte's 24 points in the first half matched a franchise low, set at Orlando in 2007 and also established a Thunder team record for the fewest points allowed in a half. … Westbrook played in his 327th consecutive game, the longest active streak in the league. … The Thunder improved to 9-1 when scoring 100 points or more and 6-0 when shooting 50 percent or better from the field.
