It was close after one quarter and memories of last night were fresh in everyone’s mind. But it was the second unit led by James Harden that helped the Thunder pull away for a 122-95 win over the Charlotte Bobcats Saturday night.
Harden scored a career-high 33 points in 27 minutes and making four three-pointers. Kevin Durant scored 26 and Russell Westbrook 23 as the trio combined to go 29-of-42 from the field.
The Thunder as a team shot 63 percent from the field and made 10 three-pointers on the night. They only needed six offensive rebounds and had 27 assists in the win.
Harden was the story tonight as Charlotte had no answer for anything he did. Harden got to any spot he wanted all night.
The Thunder improve to 32-9 on the year and 18-2 at home. They will play Houston (22-19) after two days off Tuesday.
