Thunder storm past Love-less T-Wolves

Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Kevin Durant scored 26 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to a 106-84 decision over a short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves squad at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Russell Westbrook accumulated 23 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help the Thunder bounce back from Monday's startling 101-99 setback at league- worst Washington, with Kevin Martin contributing 19 points off the bench to the rout.

Oklahoma City shot 55.3 percent in the second half to pull away while making 11-of-20 attempts from 3-point range for the game, with Martin going 4-of-7 from long distance and Westbrook knocking down 3-of-4 tries from beyond the arc.

Minnesota, which was without head coach Rick Adelman for a second straight night due to a personal matter and lost All-Star forward Kevin Love for an extended period last week, received 18 points from Alexey Shved and a 17- point, 10-rebound effort from Nikola Pekovic.

Derrick Williams finished with 14 points and 11 boards in the loss, the Timberwolves' fifth in their last six outings on the road.
