Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant lead OKC Thunder over Washington Wizards in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook scored 21 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Washington Wizards 103-80 on Wednesday night.

Kevin Martin had 18 points for the Thunder, who came in 1 1/2 games behind San Antonio for the top spot in the Western Conference.

Washington had won its previous two games against Oklahoma City, winning the only meeting during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season before stunning the Thunder 101-99 in Washington on Jan. 7 -- the second despite playing without point guard John Wall.

Wall, coming off 47 points in a win over Memphis, overcame 3-of-18 shooting to finish with 18 points and 12 assists, but he had limited help. Numerous injuries and illness left the Wizards with only eight players in uniform.
