OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 32 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Chicago Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win.

Russell Westbrook had 20 points and reserve Reggie Jackson added 18 to help the Thunder improve to 13-0 at Chesapeake Energy Arena, tying the franchise record for the best home start to a season. Oklahoma City is the only NBA team with a perfect home record.

Joakim Noah had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the banged-up Bulls, who have lost four straight and seven of eight. Taj Gibson scored 16 points and D.J. Augustin added 15.

Chicago played without Kirk Hinrich (back tightness) and Luol Deng (sore Achilles), and Jimmy Butler left during the game with a right ankle injury.

Oklahoma City outscored Chicago 16-4 over a late 5½-minute stretch to pull away.
