OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant matched his season high with 37 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Houston Rockets 120-98 on Wednesday night in James Harden's first time back in Chesapeake Energy Arena since being traded before the season.

Harden scored 17 points, but was limited to 3-for-16 shooting. He had six shots blocked by the Thunder.

Patrick Patterson scored 27 points and Omer Asik had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead the way for the Rockets, who began the day by attending the funeral of coach Kevin McHale's daughter in Minnesota.

Harden missed his first nine shots, and by the time he made one, the Rockets were down by double digits in the second half. They never got closer than 10 after that.
