Raptors vs. Thunder final score: Oklahoma City bounces back with 108-88 victory

Mark D. Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Oklahoma City Thunder moved to 2-2 on the season with a 20-point win over Toronto on Tuesday.

After a fourth-quarter collapse against Atlanta on Sunday, the Oklahoma Thunder responded in a big way on Tuesday night at home with a thorough 108-88 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Led once again by the duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, the Thunder opened up a 13-point advantage after the first quarter and never looked back. Westbrook finished the evening with game-highs of both 19 points and eight assists, while Durant chipped in 15 points in just 29 minutes on the floor. No Oklahoma City starter saw more than 29 minutes of court time in the blowout win, on a night when a number of key bench players stepped up in the second-half for head coach Scott Brooks.

In easily his strongest effort of the young season, Oklahoma City big man Hasheem Thabeet made his presence known with an intriguing performance off the bench. The 7'3 Thabeet tallied 10 points, five rebounds and a pair of blocks in 23 minutes of action. He has now blocked at least one shot in all four of the Thunder's games.

With a chance to move above .500 for the first time this season, the defending Western Conference champs will next hit the road for a Thursday game against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
