TORONTO, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Andrea Bargnani scored 26 points Friday and the Toronto Raptors rode a big third quarter to a 111-99 decision over Oklahoma City.
Toronto ended the Thunder's seven-game road winning streak against Eastern Conference opponents, the most recent of those victories being a triple-overtime decision in New Jersey.
The Raptors trailed by seven heading into the second half but outscored Oklahoma City in the third period 34-18 to take control. Bargnani made 11-of-20 shots from the field as part of a 54-percent shooting effort and received plenty of help from Leandro Barbosa with 22 points.
Oklahoma City played without leading scorer Kevin Durant, who is nursing a sprained left knee. It was the fourth game Durant has missed this season and the first time his team has lost without him.
The Thunder got 20 points from both Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
