NEW YORK, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Kevin Durant scored 20 of his 29 points in the first half Wednesday, helping Oklahoma City rout the New York Knicks, 123-94.

Russell Westbrook nabbed his first triple-double of the season and the seventh of his career.

For the first 24 minutes, Durant was 7-of-9 from the floor. Westbrook had 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for Oklahoma City, snapping its 10-game skid.

Serge Ibaka netted 24 points on 10-of-14.

J.R. Smith led with 20 points for the Knicks, who fell to 23-26.
