OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) James Harden scored 22 of his career-high 33 points in the first half, Kevin Durant had 26 points and Russell Westbrook added 23 as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Charlotte Bobcats 122-95 on Saturday night.
The Thunder improved to 18-2 at home, rebounding from a disappointing 96-90 loss to visiting Cleveland on Friday night, in a game Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said his team didn't play up to expectations.
They started slow against the Bobcats and led 28-25 after one quarter before picking it up. The Thunder led by as much as 29 and the reserves got the bulk of the playing time in the fourth quarter.
D. J. Augustin scored 22 points for the Bobcats and Corey Maggette had 21.
