Thunder offense too much for Pacers' D, 104-93

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Kevin Durant scored 27 points, Kevin Martin added 24 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Indiana Pacers 104-93 on Sunday night for their eighth straight win.

A meeting of the NBA's highest-scoring offense and the league's stingiest defense went the way of the Thunder, who eclipsed 100 points for the 12th straight game.

Of course, Oklahoma City boasts the NBA's second-best defense to go with all that offensive firepower.

Russell Westbrook added 21 points and came up with a big block against 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert - 11 inches taller than him - during a late 8-0 burst by the Thunder that put it away after the Pacers had pulled within three.

David West led the way with 21 points for Indiana, which had all five of its starters score in double figures.
