MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Russell Westbrook scored 27 points and Kevin Durant added 18 to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 116-100 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Reserve guard Jeremy Lamb added a career-high 18 points to help the Thunder to their fourth straight win and 12th in 13 games. Neither Westbrook nor Durant played in the fourth quarter, when the Thunder maintained a double-digit lead.

Mike Conley had 20 points for the Grizzlies and Zach Randolph and reserve Jon Leuer scored 17 apiece.

Memphis ended a season-long six-game homestand with the loss.

A depleted Grizzlies' squad - missing starters Marc Gasol and Tony Allen with injuries - stayed close to the Thunder through most of the first half and trailed 40-37 after Conley's floater in the lane with 4:19 to go in the second quarter.

Then the Thunder put together a 17-5 run to end the half for a 57-42 advantage at the break. During the run, Durant had two driving dunks and Westbrook added a 3-pointer and four assists.

Oklahoma City boosted its advantage to as many as 24 points in the second half on several occasions giving the Thunder the luxury of resting Durant and Westbrook. The Thunder were playing back-to-back games after defeating the Hawks Tuesday night in Atlanta on Tuesday night.

The Thunder, who shot 61 percent in a win over Indiana on Sunday, shot 56 percent against the Grizzlies. Memphis shot 42 percent and was outrebounded, 42-33.

Oklahoma City shot 50 percent in the first half, when Durant scored 16 points and Westbrook had 15.

NOTES: Thunder reserve center Steven Adams sprained his right ankle in the second half and didn't return. ... Grizzlies guard Tony Allen missed his fourth straight game with a right hip contusion and reserve forward Ed Davis missed his third straight with a left ankle sprain.
