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