Suns Overshadowed By Thunder

PHOENIX (AP) Kevin Durant and James Harden scored scored 22 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder completed the best regular-season month in franchise history with a 116-98 victory over the fading Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.

Michael Westbrook added 16, Serge Ibaka 15 and Kendrick Perkins 13 as the Thunder won their fifth in a row, 11th in their last 12 and 50th of the season. Their 14-2 March was the best monthly record in franchise history. As the Seattle SuperSonics, they went 14-3 twice - in March of 1994 and November of 1996.

Vince Carter, now coming off the bench for Phoenix, scored 28 in the Suns' fourth straight loss. Three of Carter's top four scoring games for the Suns have come against Oklahoma City.
