A balanced effort by the Cleveland Cavaliers gave the Thunder their fourth worst home loss in team history, 115-92. It's the worst home loss in team history with Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka all in the line up.

The Cavs finished with six players in double figures led by Kevin Love who scored 29 points on nine of 18 shooting and had 11 rebounds to go along with it.

LeBron James posted 25 points and 11 assists, also shooting 50% from the field.

The game truly got out of hand in the third quarter capped off by a 13-0 Cleveland run. Richard Jefferson added 15 off the bench. Kyrie Irving started the game, but later left and didn't return with flu like symptoms.

Kevin Durant paced OKC with 26 points. Russell Westbrook narrowly missed a triple-double with 20 points, 11 assists, 9 rebounds.

Steven Adams started the game off strong scoring nine points in the first quarter, but didn't score again the rest of the contest.

Dion Waiters struggles continued as he went one of eight with just four points. Over the last three games Waiters is three of 20 from the field with ten points.

Head to head, Kevin Durant has never beaten LeBron James as a member of the Cavs (0-8).

The Thunder now fall to 16 and 13 against teams with a record above .500. 11 of their 16 losses have come against Eastern Conference opponents.

The Thunder return to action on Wednesday in Dallas against the Mavericks.
