Thunder Throttle Raptors

National Basketball Association(TORONTO) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder got 22 points from Kevin Durant and pulled away in the second half to defeat the Toronto Raptors, 104-92 on Sunday afternoon.

The Thunder (26-7) outscored Toronto by nine in the third quarter to pull away and win for the fifth time in eight games. "We just want to keep on playing like we're at home and keep on racking up the wins," Thunder guard Kevin Martin said.

Durant also added seven rebounds and seven assists to lead the way for Oklahoma City, who had five players score in double figures. "Everybody participated, everybody chipped in and everybody did their job," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said.

Toronto (12-22) got a career-high 27 points from Alan Anderson, but could not overcome the hot shooting of the Thunder. "I praised our guys, the way we fought and scrapped," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "But at the end of day reality set in."
