Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Durant had 28 points, six rebounds and five assists and the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Charlotte Bobcats, 116-99, on Sunday night.

Russell Westbrook tallied 26 points and five assists, while Serge Ibaka provided 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, who dropped their first three games since Westbrook returned before winning two straight.

OKC has beaten Charlotte seven consecutive times.

Al Jefferson had 25 points and seven rebounds and Anthony Tolliver supplied 17 points for Charlotte, which has dropped two in a reel on the heels of a four- game winning streak.

"We just made too many mistakes in the fourth quarter, turned the ball over (seven times) they really picked up the defensive pressure," Jefferson said.
