OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 28 points and Russell Westbrook had 26 to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Charlotte Bobcats 116-99 Sunday night.

Durant made just 8 of 24 field goals, but sank all 12 of his free throws.

Westbrook was 10 of 12 from the floor in 25 minutes in his fifth game since returning from right knee surgery. Reggie Jackson scored 17 points and Serge Ibaka had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Oklahoma City, which won its second straight after losing its first three games following the All-Star break. Oklahoma City outrebounded the Bobcats 44-29.

Al Jefferson scored 25 points and Anthony Tolliver added 17 for the Bobcats, who had won four straight before losses on back-to-back days to San Antonio and Oklahoma City.
