OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 27 points before taking the fourth quarter off and the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled past the error-prone New Jersey Nets 114-93 on Wednesday night.

Oklahoma City forced a season-high 23 turnovers and bounced back from a loss in what's becoming trademark fashion. The Thunder are 10-1 after a loss this season, meaning they haven't had a losing streak longer than two games.

Russell Westbrook added 17 points and seven assists through the first three quarters as all 12 players scored for Oklahoma City. Reserve James Harden had 11 points to reach double figures for the ninth straight game, and Nenad Krstic and Nick Collison added 10 apiece.

Devin Harris and Brook Lopez each scored 19 points to lead New Jersey, which has lost its past three games by 51 points.
