Warriors vs. Thunder final score: Durant's triple-double fuels OKC win

Mark D. Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Oklahoma City Thunder survived a late push by Golden State, fueled by Kevin Durant's first career triple-double for a 119-109 win.

The Oklahoma City Thunder, boosted by Kevin Durant's first career triple-double, beat the Golden State Warriors 119-109 at home on Sunday night.

The Thunder used a strong second and third quarter to rush to a 94-73 lead before the final frame, with most of the starters beginning the fourth quarter on the bench. Durant was just one assist shy of a triple-double at that point, yet got back into the game after the Warriors had closed to within 101-88.

Durant's career-high tenth assist came just a few minutes later, setting up Kevin Martin from three-point range.

Oklahoma City's leading scorer finished with 25 points, 13 rebounds and ten assists, along with just two turnovers after averaging four per game over the course of the season so far. Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 30 points in the game, with Martin adding 23 points and five assists in 31 minutes off the bench.

The Thunder move to 8-3 on the season and next take on the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, with tipoff set for 6:30 p.m. CT, with coverage on ESPN.
