The Brooklyn Nets started the game hot and never let up in a 116-85 rout of the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday night.

The loss was OKC’s worst regular season defeat since a 35-point defeat to Portland in April of 2009 in the Thunder’s first season.

It was also the worst regular season road loss since January of 2009, in a 42-point defeat at Minnesota.

The Nets knocked 52 percent of their shots from the field and made 11 of 23 from three point range, while OKC made just 39 percent from the field and committed 17 turnovers.

Brooklyn grew the lead each quarter, leading by 13 after the first quarter, 19 at halftime, 23 after three quarters and eventually winning by 31.

Reggie Jackson made his season debut after missing the first three games of the season with a sprained ankle and led the Thunder with 23 points.

Three other Thunder players were in double figure scoring, with Perry Jones and Sebastian Telfair scoring 16 each and Steven Adams 15.

The injury bug hit again as well, as Andre Roberson had to leave the game in the first quarter with a sprained foot.

Head coach Scott Brooks said after the game Roberson will miss the next game and will be re-evaluated on Friday.

Brooklyn had balanced scoring, with six players in double figures.

Alan Anderson and Brook Lopez led the way for the Nets with 18  points each.

The Thunder drop to 1-3 on the season.

OKC plays at Toronto Tuesday night in a 6:30 tipoff in Canada.
