The Oklahoma City Thunder went on a 24-6 run to end the first quarter on their way to a 119-94 rout of the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night at Chesapeake Arena.

OKC shot 52 percent from the field and outrebounded Denver by 18 to rout the Nuggets.

Five Thunder players scored in double figures, led by Russell Westbrook, who had 21 points and a Thunder record 17 assists.

Enes Kanter had his second straight double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Serge Ibaka had 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 blocked shots.

Dion Waiters added 17 points and Mitch McGary had 10 points and 7 rebounds.

OKC played the game without Kevin Durant, who sat out for the second straight game.

Durant underwent a procedure on his foot to ease irritation caused by a screw inserted in his right foot that was surgically repaired for a fracture in the preseason.

He's expected to be out a week and will be re-evalauted then to determine when he will return.

The Thunder improved to 31-25 on the season and will finish a brief homestand by hosting Indiana on Tuesday night at 7:00 at Chesapeake Arena.
