OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Russell Westbrook had 28 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, Kevin Durant added 23 points and eight rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder won its sixth straight game, beating the Phoenix Suns 112-88 on Sunday night.
Westbrook recorded his eighth straight game of scoring at least 20 points, and getting five rebounds and five assists since his return from a broken hand. By halftime, he had 24, five rebounds and six assists. He narrowly missed getting his ninth career triple-double.
With the win, Oklahoma City – which started the season 3-12 – moved within a half-game of eighth place in the Western Conference. The Thunder, with Westbrook and Durant back after missing most or all of the first part of the season due to injury, has won eight of their last nine games and is 11-13.
Gerald Green led Phoenix with 15 points. The Suns have lost five straight games to fall to 12-13.
