The Oklahoma City Thunder stopped their two-game home losing streak with a convincing 119-96 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night at Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City.

Reggie Jackson scored a career high 27 points for OKC, hitting nine of 12 from the field and making all three 3-point attempts.

The Thunder won every quarter, gradually pulling away from the Celtics to win easily.

Kevin Durant had 21 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds in the win, while Serge Ibaka added 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Jeremy Lamb scored 13 points off the bench and hit three 3-pointers, and Kendrick Perkins was surprisingly effective on offense, scoring a season high 12 points and grabbing six rebounds.

The Thunder shot 52 percent from the field to improve to 26-7.

OKC next is on a two-game road trip, visiting Utah Tuesday at 8:00, and Denver Thursday at 9:30.
