Durant and Westbrook bring the Thunder to Indiana.
Despite an injury scare in the first half, Kevin Durant returned in the second to score 22 of his 34 points, with 15 coming in the fourth quarter, to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 97-75 win over the Indiana Pacers.
The loss ended a five-game winning streak for the Pacers who had no answer to the OKC offense, while Roy Hibbert had a team-high 22 points.
The win sees the Thunder move level with the San Antonio Spurs at the top of the Western Conference with identical records both at home and on the road, as Durant (34) and Russell Westbrook (24) saw them home in Indiana.
Meanwhile, the Pacers failed to clinch the Central Division and fell 1.5 games behind the New York Knicks in the race for the second seed in the East.
They face a tough trip on Saturday when they head to Washington to take on a Wizards team in great form in front of their home fans. As for the Thunder, they’re in New York to face the Knicks on Sunday.
