NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Los Angeles Lakers

Kevin Durant scored 33 points, Russell Westbrook added 19 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Los Angeles Lakers 100-85 on Thursday night to head into the All-Star break tied for the league’s best record.

The Thunder won their 12th straight home game and denied Los Angeles the chance to head into the midseason break with back-to-back statement wins on the road. The Lakers had won at defending NBA champion Dallas a night earlier and were trying to follow it by knocking off the other half of last year’s West finals.

Kobe Bryant scored 24 points but went 7-for-24 from the field for Los Angeles. Pau Gasol had 22 points and nine rebounds.
