OKC Thunder lead by 40 at half, hold on to beat Charlotte Bobcats 114-69

Mark D. Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Things couldn’t have gone better for the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight.

They actually got off to a somewhat slow start in the first few minutes of the game before completely destroying the Charlotte Bobcats 114-69.

The Thunder led 64-24 at half time which is the first time an NBA team has led by 40 at the half in over 20 years. They held Charlotte to just 21 percent shooting in the first half and the 24 points allowed is the fewest allowed in a half in Thunder history.

Kevin Durant had 18 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with four blocks and Russell Westbrook had 12 points and 11 assists.

The Thunder shot 51.3 percent from the field and had 31 assists. It was the third time this season that OKC registered 30 or more assists as a team in a game.

The Bobcats finished the game shooting 29.1 percent and amazingly turned the ball over just 11 times in the blowout.

The Thunder have been one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the league this season and that was again the case tonight as they made 13-of-27 from the land of plenty.

The Thunder improve to 11-4 on the year and their next game will be Wednesday night when they will host James Harden and the Houston Rockets.
