Durant, Thunder rout Magic

Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Durant had 21 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder routed the Orlando Magic 127-99 on Sunday.

Russell Westbrook posted 17 points and six assists, while Serge Ibaka added 16 points and eight boards for the Thunder, who have won two straight on the heels of a 1-3 stretch.

"We came out with the defense we talked about to start this road trip," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "Everybody was really locked in an engaged."

Victor Oladipo tallied 23 points and five helpers and Elfrid Payton supplied 19 points and eight assists for Orlando, which has dropped eight of its last 10 games.

The Thunder raced off to a 13-0 start and never looked back. Ibaka knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the early going and an Andre Roberson triple staked OKC to its early cushion.
