The OKC Thunder earned their sixth win in a row Thursday night, taking down the visiting Utah Jazz 113-91, and Kevin Durant filled the stat sheet with 20 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.
Russell Westbrook’s triple-double streak came to an end at three, but he still pumped in 15 points to go along with nine dimes and seven boards before taking a seat for the whole fourth quarter.
Jazz forward Trevor Booker continues to engage in a hilarious, one-sided beef with former teammate Enes Kanter.

Per the AP:
Durant had 20 points, nine assists and eight rebounds to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Utah Jazz 113-91 on Thursday night for their sixth straight victory. During the winning streak, the four-time scoring champion is averaging 7.2 assists and has at least six in five of the six games. […] “It helps a lot,” Westbrook said. “There’s a lot of pressure on him, with two or three guys on him. He’s finding open guys and guys are making shots.”
Dion Waiters scored 17 points, Enes Kanter added 14, and the Thunder shot 54 percent from the field.
The Thunder will take the NBA’s longest current winning streak into their home game Saturday against San Antonio. […] “It’s just another game,” Durant said. “It’s just another opportunity to keep building the habits that we’ve built these last couple weeks. We just want to keep playing good basketball like we’ve been playing. It means nothing. I’m sure it means nothing to those guys. It’s not a playoff game. It’s just another opportunity to get better, but also, come out there and play our game.”
