The Oklahoma City Thunder are eviscerating the New York Knicks through the first half of their Christmas Day game. The Thunder hold a 60-46 lead going into halftime, led by Kevin Durant's 20 points on an incredible 7-of-9 shooting. Serge Ibaka has also started off strong, scoring 17 points and missing only two attempts. Carmelo Anthony is not playing, out with an ankle sprain.
The game has been a blur with both teams pushing the pace. The Knicks haven't been able to keep up with the Thunder, though. Oklahoma City is shooting 55.6 percent from beyond the arc and 60.5 percent overall as a team. New York started the game shooting 57 percent but struggled in the second quarter, scoring just 17 points.
