Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - It was too much Kevin Durant and Russell
Westbrook Friday, and the Oklahoma City Thunder moved into a tie with San
Antonio atop the Western Conference.
The duo combined for 58 points in the Thunder's 97-75 rout of the Indiana
Durant netted 32 of his 34 points over the final three quarters, while
Westbrook added 24 points and nine assists for the Thunder, who downed San
Antonio 100-88 on Thursday.
The Thunder dominated the glass and held a 53-31 rebounding margin against the
normally-physical Pacers, who lead the NBA in rebounding.
Roy Hibbert tallied 22 points and eight boards for Indiana, which failed in
its attempt to clinch its first Central Division title in nine years.
The Pacers, who had their five-game winning streak snapped, are 1 1/2 games
behind the New York Knicks for the second seed in the East.
