OKC Thunder avoid another letdown, pound Minnesota Timberwolves 106-84 in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 26 points, Russell Westbrook added 23 and the Oklahoma City Thunder overpowered the out-manned Minnesota Timberwolves 106-84 on Wednesday night.

After losing its last game on a buzzer-beater against a last-place Washington team saddled by injuries to its three top players, Oklahoma City left nothing to chance with the Timberwolves missing All-Star forward Kevin Love and four others.

The Thunder took control with a string of seven straight points early in the second half and stretched their lead to 24 before pulling Durant, Westbrook and the other starters with 5:44 remaining.
