The Oklahoma City Thunder (25-5) captured a 117-86 wire-to-wire victory over the Houston Rockets (21-12) on Sunday evening. 

Playing their fourth game in five nights, the Rockets looked lethargic throughout and were helpless against Kevin Durant and a surging Thunder offense. 

On the night, the Rockets shot a miserable 36.5 percent from the field and 25 percent from three.

Chandler Parsons was the only Houston starter to finish in double figures (15 points) while Aaron Brooks and Omri Casspi added 17 and 15, respectively, off the pine. 

James Harden scored just six points on 2-of-9 shooting, while Dwight Howard managed nine points and nine boards in the loss. 

Durant was sensational in the win, scoring a game-high 33 points while posting a double-double with 13 rebounds. He also dished out five assists. 

Three other Thunder players finished in double-figures, including Jeremy Lamb, who scored a career-high 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting off the bench. 

Reggie Jackson was solid in another start in place of the injured Russell Westbrook, scoring 16 points and dishing out a game-high eight assists.
