NBA scores: Thunder, Grizzlies and Spurs continue winning in the West

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The three top teams in the Western Conference all won games on Friday night as they continue to separate themselves from the pack.

The Oklahoma City Thunder kept the Los Angeles Lakers reeling by holding on to earn a 114-108 win at home and keep pace among the elite teams in the Western Conference.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined to score 69 points to lead the Thunder, which was enough to overcome Kobe Bryant's 35 points in the game. As Oklahoma City approaches the quarter poll of the season, they are clearly one of three top teams in the West along with the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs.

The Grizzlies beat the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night, 96-89. Rudy Gay paced the Grizz with 28 points while reserve Quincy Pondexter added 16 points off the bench.

Meanwhile, the Spurs jumped on the Houston Rockets early and never let up before notching the W, 114-92. San Antonio spread the wealth with seven players scoring in double figures, led by Tony Parker with 17 points and seven assists.

In Northwest Division action, the Denver Nuggets won on the road, 92-89, over the Indiana Pacers thanks to 55 points off the bench, including 15 points and 10 assists from Andre Miller.

The Minnesota Timberwolves drubbed the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-73, thanks to 36 points and 13 rebounds from Kevin Love.
