NEW YORK, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Kevin Durant settled for 26 points Friday and Oklahoma City shot a torrid 63 percent in crushing Brooklyn 120-95.

Oklahoma City will end a three-game road trip in Washington on Saturday.

Serge Ibaka added 25 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma City and both Thabo Sefolosha and Reggie Jackson had 14 points. The Thunder made 49-of-77 shots from the field.
