OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Andy Rautins scored 20 points, Serge Ibaka added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Charlotte Bobcats 120-98 in a preseason game on Tuesday night. The Thunder played at the Chesapeake Energy Arena for the first time since losing in the NBA Finals, but did so without starters Kendrick Perkins (left wrist surgery) and Thabo Sefolosha (left quad contusion) or Sixth Man of the Year James Harden (strained left groin). Kevin Durant scored 13 points in his most extensive playing time of the preseason, going 2 for 8 in the first half before hitting his first three shots after halftime. He and Westbrook scored all the points during an 11-2 run midway through the third quarter that stretched Oklahoma City's lead to 72-59 and put the Thunder in control. Ben Gordon led the Bobcats with 21 points and Ramon Sessions scored 18.
