(Sports Network) - The Oklahoma City Thunder will try to string together consecutive wins for the first time this season when they resume a four-game road trip tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats.
The expansion Thunder won for just the second time this year and ended a lengthy 14-game losing streak with a 111-103 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday in the opener of the trip at FedEx Forum. Kevin Durant scored 30 points and Jeff Green contributed 22 for Oklahoma City, which won its first road game since relocating from Seattle (1-7).
Durant also pulled down seven boards and went 14-of-16 from the foul line, as the Thunder shot 52.1 percent from the floor to post its first win since November 2 versus Minnesota.
Oklahoma City will also visit Orlando and Miami on the current swing.
The Bobcats have alternated wins and losses over their last six games and will close out a three-game homestand Wednesday night at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Charlotte improved to 1-1 on the residency and 5-7 as the host this season with Monday's 100-90 triumph over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jason Richardson scored a season-high 25 points and Emeka Okafor added a season-best 24 points to go along with 10 rebounds in a winning effort.
Raymond Felton chipped in a season-high 14 assists and 14 points for the Bobcats, who are 5-7 as the host this season.
The Bobcats won both meetings with Seattle/Oklahoma City last season.
Charlotte is 3-5 all-time in this series.
