Thunder 114, Nets 93: Road Woes Continue

The New Jersey Nets had to deal with a blizzard at home before arriving in Oklahoma City, but it was the Thunder snowing the visiting team on Wednesday night 114-93.

After starting the season 2-2 away from Newark, the Nets have lost 12 of their last 13 games on the road.  Their latest effort was one of the worst of the season.

The league's leading scorer, Kevin Durant, continued to pace the Thunder, scoring 27 points in just 30 minutes as he got to watch the end of the game in his warm ups.  Russell Westbrook followed up his 38 point performance last time these two teams met with 17 and seven assists.

Brook Lopez and Devin Harris led the Nets with 19 points each, while Travis Outlaw chipped in 12 as New Jersey dropped their third straight game.

The game was tied after the first quarter, but the Thunder took control in the second.  Spurred by 12 Nets turnovers, Oklahoma City outscored New Jersey 33-22 and never looked back.

Next up for the Nets are the Bulls in Chicago on New Year's Eve.
