OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 23 points, Russell Westbrook added 19 and the Oklahoma City cruised to a 110-87 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

Kevin Martin had 15 points for Oklahoma City, which improved to 25-8 at home. The Thunder led 29-19 after one quarter and 50-28 at halftime.

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points to lead Utah, and Enes Kanter had 12. The Jazz lost for the eighth time in 10 games, but remained one-half game behind the Los Angeles Lakers for eighth place in the West.

Durant struggled early, recording more turnovers (6) than points (5) through the first 22 minutes. The NBA's leading scorer didn't convert until 3.8 seconds left in the first quarter and finished the half with eight points.

Durant found his rhythm in the third quarter, scoring nine of Oklahoma City's first 11 points and 15 overall to push the Thunder's lead to 32.
