Thunder rout Hornets behind Durant, Westbrook

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The New Orleans Hornets used to feel right at home in Oklahoma City. The team played in the Ford Center for two seasons after Hurricane Katrina devasted the Crescent City.

The Hornets were comfortable in their home away from home where a friendly city had tossed them a life raft.

Wednesday night, though, there was no comfort for the Hornets inside a sold-out Ford Center where Oklahoma City's rolling Thunder routed the former favorites from Bayou country 98-83 and it wasn't nearly that close for most of the game.

Thunder forward Kevin Durant led his team with 29 points and point guard Russell Westbrook again flirted with a triple-double by scoring 17 points, dishing nine assists and grabbing eight rebounds.

In the beginning, however, there was a little hospitality from the Thunder.

"That was an interesting start," admitted OKC coach Scott Brooks. "We didn't hit shots and we couldn't defend."

As a result, despite missing Chris Paul and now Peja Stojakovic, New Orleans jumped out to quick 11-2 and then 19-10 leads before the Thunder could get into the flow of things.

"After those first six minutes I thought the last 42 minutes we played about as good as we can play," Brooks said.

From that 19-10 start, Oklahoma City outscored New Orleans 44-26 in the rest of the first half to lead 54-45 at the break. The Thunder clamped down on defense the rest of the way limiting the Hornets to just 38 second half points.

"The Thunder has a lot of energy, they're an extremely confident team," Hornets coach Jeff Bower said. "They're a long and solid defensive team that played well. You've gotta give them a lot of credit for how they played getting the victory."

Bower knew his team had to get off to a fast start but he'd hoped his bunch would be able to sustain that energy. New Orleans forward David West had 12 points in the first 6:18 of the game but then just seven more the rest of the first half.

"David West got us off to a good start but we just didn't have the shot making surrounding us after that early push."

West continued to rip the nets in the second half but no one else on his team stepped in to help. West finished with a monster game, scoring 33 points on 14-for-22 shooting.

Over the last five games he's had help from rookies Darren Collison, who'd averaged 22 points in that span, and Marcus Thornton, who'd been averaging 24. Wednesday night in OKC that duo managed just 19 points, most of them in the last minutes of the game on a combined 7-for-27 shooting night.

Until the final 90 seconds of the game Collison had just four points on 1-for-12 shooting.

"We took the challenge of those two guys," Durant said. "Collison is a tough cover, Russ did a great job on him. All the guys on defense just helped each other out. When we work together on defense like we did tonight we're tough to beat."

Oklahoma City has been almost unbeatable lately having picked up wins in five of its last six games and 15 of its last 18 to surge 15 games over .500. With the lowly Nets up next and the streaking Jazz right after that, could the Thunder look past the Nets to what could be a division showdown game on Sunday?

"We haven't done that all year," said Brooks, "New Jersey will come in and play hard, we know that. We're just continuing to take things one game at a time. We wanna take care of what we can control and that's our effort."

New Orleans, meanwhile, is slipping off in the other direction having now lost five of its last six to dip a game below .500 with a visit from high-flying Denver up next and then a trip to Phoenix.

West, in his best team captain voice, tried to steady the ship.

"First and foremost we have to be professionals," West said. "We have to come in with the intensity and concentration that we put in, in terms of game plan. Come out and try to win a game that we have in front of us, regardless of who we're playing. It's going to be difficult for the young guys but it's going to be a great opportunity to get some experience."

Experience is something the Thunder have very little of, being the NBA's youngest team, but so far it hasn't seemed to matter.

"We're just focused on getting better," Brooks said.

And getting better they certainly are.
