Westbrook & Thunder Demolish Denver

Posted: Updated:

It didn't take long for the Oklahoma City Thunder to impose their will on the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night at Chesapeake Arena.  OKC jumped out to a 7-0 lead and never looked back as they cruised to a 117-97 victory.

They improve their NBA best record to 31-8.

Russell Westbrook set the stage early.  He poured in 16 of his game-high 32 points in the first quarter.

Kevin Durant was held nine points below his average, but he still managed 20.  Kevin Martin had a good night with 20 points as well and was 2-3 from behind the arch.

The Thunder were at home for just one game.  They head out Friday to begin a six game road swing beginning in Dallas.  By the time this stretch is over Oklahoma City will have played 9-of-10 games away from the Peak.

Their game Friday with the Mavs gets started at 7:00pm
