Durant drains 33 as Thunder blast Bucks
Russell Westbrook easily won the matchup of young point guards, and the Oklahoma City Thunder had no trouble with the Milwaukee Bucks, either.
Kevin Durant had 33 points and 12 rebounds, Westbrook outplayed rookie Brandon Jennings, and the Thunder beat the Bucks 108-90 on Friday night.
Westbrook scored nine of his 20 points during a 17-0 run over the first 6 1/2 minutes of the second half. He also helped hold Jennings to 3-of-11 shooting and 12 points, 11.4 below his average.
"I just went out and did what I could to help my team. He's a good player and he's going to be a good player," Westbrook said. "My job as a point guard is to get us going, especially on the defensive end, whether it's rebounding or passing the ball or defending, just get our team going on the right track."
