Kevin Durant had 26 points and 17 rebounds, Russell Westbrook added 20 points and seven assists and the Oklahoma City Thunder hammered the Memphis Grizzlies, 112-94, at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies were without Mike Conley (Achilles).

The Thunder took control of this game right from the start, jumping out to a 25-16 lead after the first quarter.

By halftime, Oklahoma City led 56-36.

Durant had a monster second half, scoring 17 of his 26 points and going 7-of-8 from the floor after shooting just 2-of-10 in the first half.

Durant was questionable to play in this game due to a sprained toe, but he looked just fine.

The Thunder shot 45.8 percent and outrebounded the Grizzlies, 52-39.

Memphis made just 38.9 percent of its shots.

Mario Chalmers led the Grizzlies with 23 points off the bench.

Next up for the Grizzlies is a home meeting with the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the Thunder will head out West to take on the Los Angeles Lakers, also on Friday.
