Westbrook rests, OKC still handles Jazz
November 24, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 19 points and Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 11 rebounds to help Oklahoma City extend its best season-opening start at home with a 95-73 win over the struggling Utah Jazz on Sunday night.
The Thunder (9-3) played without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, who sat out to rest his surgically repaired right knee.
Even without Westbrook, Oklahoma City's lead swelled to as many as 37 points in the third quarter. Durant, the NBA's leading scorer at 29.5 points per game, didn't play in the fourth quarter - finishing with nine rebounds and hitting 12 of 13 free throws.
The Thunder have won six straight at home to open the season, their best opening stretch since moving to Oklahoma City.
Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert led the Jazz (1-14), losers of six straight gaes, with 10 points apiece.
