MEMPHIS, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- An all-around performance by Russell Westbrook Wednesday brought Oklahoma City a small measure of revenge with a 116-100 win over Memphis.

Westbrook sat out with an injury last season while Memphis was eliminating the Thunder in the semifinals of the Western Conference playoffs.

This time, however, Westbrook scored 27 points along with nine assists and six rebounds. The Thunder won their fourth in a row with Kevin Durant and Jeremy Lamb both producing 18 points.

Oklahoma City took a 15-point lead at the break and shot 56 percent from the field. The Thunder hit 9-of-18 from 3-point range with Westbrook hitting two of the long-range shots. Westbrook also went 11-of-11 from the foul line.

Mike Conley scored 20 points for the Grizzlies and Zach Randolph had 17. Memphis center Marc Gasol continued to miss action with a sprained knee.

Oklahoma City took command with a 15-3 run in the second period that put the Thunder in front 55-40.
