Russell Westbrook had 34 points and Serge Ibaka 21 points and a career high 22 rebounds as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat Dallas 104-89 on Thursday night at Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City.
Westbrook had a big slam early in the game to get the crowd going, and was on his way to a big night, adding 10 assists and 5 rebounds.
Ibaka hit eight of 12 shots and was a monster on the glass, grabbing 22 rebounds for his first "20-20" game.
OKC never trailed in the game and led by 16 at halftime, building the margin to 22 at one point in the second half.
Anthony Morrow added 16 points off the bench, while Kevin Durant was held to 12 points on just 4 of 14 shooting, and once again was limping late in the game, favoring his sore foot which has bothered him in recent games.
The Thunder dominated the glass, outrebounding Dallas 62-39.
The Thunder were playing with a limited roster, with Reggie Jackson, Kendrick Perkins, Grant Jerrett, Ish Smith, and Steven Adams all not playing.
Adams is still out with a broken finger, but the other four were all traded on Thursday.
Jackson was dealt to the Detroit Pistons, Perkins and Jerrett to Utah, and Smith to New Orleans.
The Thunder win was their fourth in a row, improving their record to 29-25 on the season, tying Phoenix for the 8th spot in the Western Conference standings.
OKC visits Charlotte Saturday night at 6:00.
