Thunder thumps Milwaukee


Milwaukee's Larry Sanders was ejected after elbowing Steven Adams. A few minutes later, Durant took a hard fall after trying to block a shot, and he remained on the floor for a few minutes. He got up and walked to the bench on his own as the crowd's cheers broke a concerned silence. Moments later, Durant made his first 3-pointer of the game.

Luke Ridnour and Mayo made back-to-back 3-pointers in the closing minutes of the first half to trim Oklahoma City's lead to three at the break. Durant scored 11 points in the second period.

NOTES: Milwaukee went scoreless for the final 5:09 of Friday night's 81-72 loss to Chicago, then missed its first 10 shots against Oklahoma City. ... The Thunder allowed 10 points in the first quarter, the fewest in a first quarter since the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in 2008. It also was the fewest the Thunder have allowed in any quarter this season. ... Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he never addressed Durant or the team about the incident involving Durant's Twitter account. Durant has said his account was hacked on Thursday and a photo of him smoking a hookah was sent out against his will.
