Kevin Durant had 30 points and 11 rebounds and Russell Westbrook posted 25 points, a career-high 20 assists and 11 rebounds as the Oklahoma City Thunder handled the Los Angeles Clippers, 120-108, at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday night.

The Thunder got off to a blistering start in this game, taking a 39-29 lead after the first quarter.

However, deja vu struck Oklahoma City, and before you knew it, the Clippers had tied things up at 60 late in the second period.

The Thunder took a 64-62 lead into halftime and began to pull away in the third.

With the score tied at 75, OKC went on a 12-0 run to grab an 87-75 edge. 

Oklahoma City led 93-83 entering the fourth quarter, and this time, it held on.

The Thunder were never in any real danger of losing this game down the stretch, leading by as many as 19 and easily surviving a barrage of late J.J. Redick three-pointers.

Durant and Westbrook put forth incredible outings. Westbrook in particular shined, putting together what may have been one of the most impressive performances of his career.

OKC shot 52.7 percent from the floor.

Jeff Green led Los Angeles with 23 points. Redick added 22, and Chris Paul tallied 12 points and 16 dimes.

Next up for the Clippers is a home meeting with the New York Knicks on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the Thunder will host the Minnesota Timberwolves, also on Friday.
