The OKC Thunder may not have James Harden, but they still packed more than enough punch. The Cavaliers played tough for three quarters in one of the NBA’s toughest venues, but Russell Westbrook’s barrage of buckets late in the third and early in the fourth proved to be too much as Westbrook’s 27 points led the Thunder’s 55% shooting effort as they pulled away from the Cavaliers 106-91. Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers with 20 points, Alonzo Gee added 18, and aside, from Daniel Gibson’s 16 points, the bench was a giant smoking crater devoid of production. The Cavaliers are now 1-4 on their current road trip, which they’ll conclude on Tuesday night in Brooklyn when they take on the Nets.
