Thunder easily handle tanking Blazers with 111-95 victory

The game promised to be an easy one and delivered as such. Oklahoma City easily dismantled the Portland Trailblazers 111-95 Sunday night.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook led the way combing for 54 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

James Harden was effective off the bench despite shooting 1-for-7 from the field because he got to the line a ton and made 11-of-14 free throws to go along with a team-high seven assists.

The Thunder were hot from deep last night which is always a testament to how tough an opponent plays them. Oklahoma City made 11-of-18 threes in the game as Durant made 4-of-5.

Thabo Sefolosha looked the best he has so far since returning from his injury as he made 4-of-5 field goals and scored 11 points and grabbed five boards.

The Thunder are among the worst in the league when it comes to assists per game but held a 24-to-15 advantage last night over Portland.

The Blazers did not seem to have the energy having just traded away Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby and now clearly in the mode for having a higher draft pick.

The Thunder are off tonight and will return to action Tuesday night at Utah.
