Kevin Durant went for 28 points and nobody was ejected as Oklahoma City won convincingly, 105-91, over Los Angeles in the teams' second meeting of the season. The Clippers were on the second night of a back-to-back, which perhaps tired them out prematurely in the contest between two uptempo teams. But the Thunder still managed to hold Los Angeles, the second best offense in the league, to just 91 points.
Blake Griffin had 27 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Chris Paul had 17 and 12 dimes, but it's difficult to win in Oklahoma City when you shoot just 41.3 percent from the floor. Maybe they were a bit tired after a battle on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the Thunder played great defense against high-flying L.A.
Serge Ibaka scored 17 points in his rematch against the team that triggered his recent temper flare, and Russell Westbrook had 12 points, six rebounds and five assists.
Oklahoma City committed just five turnovers in the second half after giving the ball away 12 times in the first half.
