OKC avenge Lakers loss

6:41 pm on 14 March 2014

Guard Russell Westbrook and forward Kevin Durant each scored 29 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 131-102 NBA basketball victory over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers.

It was Durant's 30th straight game in which he has posted 25 or more points, which is the second longest in the NBA since Michael Jordan's 40 game streak in 1986-87.

New Zealander Steven Adams started at centre again, scoring four points and grabbing three rebounds in 11 minutes on court.

The Thunder move to 48 wins and 17 losses and atone for Monday's 43-22 loss to the Lakers.
