OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Kevin Durant carried Oklahoma City to a big halftime lead Friday and the Thunder held on to defeat Sacramento 113-103.

Durant made 10-of-14 from the field, two of which were 3-pointers, and hit all seven of his foul shots to score 31 points. The Thunder had a 61-42 halftime advantage and still had a 21-point cushion midway through the fourth period.
Oklahoma City made half its field goal attempts and was 22-of-22 from the charity stripe.
