OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 33 points and Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 17 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped a two-game skid by defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 101-85 Saturday night.
Durant missed his first eight shots but made 8 of 10 the rest of the way. Jeremy Lamb added 17 points for the Thunder, who had lost four of six. Oklahoma City scored just 14 points in the first quarter and 38 in the first half before heating up and hitting 63 after the break.
O.J. Mayo and Luke Ridnour scored 16 points apiece and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Bucks (7-29), who have the league's worst record. Oklahoma City had been struggling on defense, but the Thunder held Milwaukee to 40 percent shooting.
