OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, Kevin Durant recorded his third career triple-double and the Oklahoma City Thunder finished a perfect three-game homestand by routing the short-handed New Orleans Hornets 119-74 on Wednesday night.
Durant had 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists as Oklahoma City finished a dominant four-game sweep of the season series against New Orleans, which was without starters Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Eric Gordon (knee). The Thunder led by at least 29 in three of the four meetings this season,
With the Thunder firmly in control, Durant made a clear bid for the triple-double. He got the assist on five straight Thunder baskets in the third quarter, grinning widely at the bench after his ninth assist. He and the rest of the starters exited soon after.
Ryan Anderson started in place of Davis and led New Orleans with 14 points.
The margin of victory matched the largest of the season for Oklahoma City and was the biggest blowout the H...
BEST OF MAXIM
OKLAHOMA CITY Right after Wednesday's win against New Orleans Kevin Durant just shook his head.
Oh, what could have been.
Yes, Durant had another triple-double, this one 18 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, but the possibility of something spectacular could have been lingered.
Too bad coach Scott Brooks benched Durant. Again.
Seems like it happens all the time, and in...

At the time, Fisher said he would devote himself to the Mavs for the season. “I told (teammates) today, ‘This is not a pit stop. This is not kind of the final whatever...
Even after his contract is up with the Oklahoma City Thunder this year (if he makes it to the end of the year), Derek Fisher is not ready to retire. Sure, the aging guard has "retired" a couple of times now, but there's no reason to think he'll actually retire, right?According to an Associated Press report, Fisher does not plan to retire. He said his knee was...
The Thunder have reassigned Perry Jones, Jeremy Lamb and DeAndre Liggins to the Tulsa 66ers.
What a fabulous idea ladies!
I've been waiting to write this one for quite some time but I'm elated with having even more irrefutable evidence to support my argument. I might not be the best person to write this, considering my disdain for anything LA, but hear me out.
Back in 2007 Derek Fisher convinced the Jazz that he needed to spend time with his ailing daughter who...
Derek Fisher will begin his second stint in as many seasons for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday against New Orleans. The 38-year-old had played nine games this season, all with Dallas, before requesting his release Dec. 22.
Fisher joining a contender two months later has Mavs owner Mark Cuban upset.
Cuban was “agitated” by the recent transaction, according to NBA.com’s Jeff...
When the Texas Longhorns stormed back on Wednesday night against their rival Oklahoma Sooners...things got a little weird in the Twitterverse.
That's because the most popular athlete in the state of Oklahoma decided to go against the grain and take on the most popular school in the state.
It started innocent enough...sorta.
"Yea my longhorns came back from being down...
Though the Oklahoma City Thunder score more than any other team in the NBA, it might be an improving defense that proves to be the difference in their title chase.
Friday night will see that defense face a tough test when the Thunder host the Denver Nuggets, whose high-octane attack has been bolstered by Ty Lawson's emergence as a dynamic scorer.
Oklahoma City (42-15) leads...
