PHILADELPHIA — Kevin Durant had 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in his return from a shoulder injury to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to their seventh straight win, a 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

Durant was scratched from the Thunder's win over Boston on Friday with a sprained right shoulder. Against the Sixers, Durant was one of the first Thunder to hit the court for pregame warm-ups. He dunked several times, even hanging on the rim for several seconds after one, and was fit to play.

The 12-win Sixers trimmed Oklahoma City's lead to four in the third quarter before Durant keyed a 14-5 run to open up a comfortable lead.

Durant, the NBA's leading scorer, has scored at least 30 points in his last 10 games.

James Anderson led the Sixers with 19 points.
