Thunder seal 127-96 blow-out win over the Suns.
Oklahoma City Thunder put in a dominant display on home court with a 127-96 win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night.
Kevin Durant led the scoring with a 21-point game, with his team-mates all contributing big numbers with Thabo Sefolosha (18 points) and Kendrick Perkins (17 points) finishing with double figures and season-highs.
There was also plenty of time for guard Russell Westbrook to post up 17 points, including a handful of crowd-pleasing monster jams which got the Chesapeake Energy Arena rocking.
The Suns appeared to be in the game at half-time, trailing by just five going into the break. Michael Beasley came off the bench to score a game-high 25 points while point guard Goran Dragic had 13 points in the first six minutes of the game, but scored just six more thereafter.
The Thunder outscored their opponents 36-20 in the third quarter, giving coach Scott Brooks the opportunity to rest Durant and Westbrook in the fourth.
Usually keen to stress that his side pride themselves on their defense, Brooks acknowledged after the game that their offense won the game with all their key players firing on the night.
Having gone just under a month without securing back-to-back wins, Brooks will be delighted that his team are now on a three-game winning streak with the latest taking their record to 17-1 at home against teams from the Western Conference.
He will hope to make it four consecutive wins when the Thunder travel to Phoenix for a re-match on Sunday.
