Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Russell Westbrook scored 28 points and Kevin
Durant tallied 26 as the Oklahoma City Thunder delivered their highest scoring
output of the season in a 124-94 thrashing of the Houston Rockets at Toyota
Westbrook added eight assists and eight rebounds, while Kevin Martin racked up
19 points off the bench to help the Thunder top their previous scoring high.
That also came against the Rockets, a 120-98 rout in Oklahoma City on Nov. 28
that marked the first meeting between the teams since the preseason trade that
sent star guard James Harden to Houston.
Much of the damage came from beyond the arc, with Oklahoma City knocking down
13-of-29 shots from three-point range. Martin went 5-of-8 from long distance,
with Durant hitting on 4-of-9 attempts.
Harden finished with 25 points against his former club, but shot just 6-of-17
from the field. Marcus Morris notched a career-high 24 points and Toney
Douglas scored 17 for Houston, which was dealt a second straight loss
following a season-best five-game win streak.
