Recap: Milwaukee vs. Oklahoma City

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Russell Westbrook had 26 points and Kevin Durant added 24 as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 92-79, on Saturday night.

Serge Ibaka tallied 15 points and 20 rebounds for the Thunder, who snapped a brief two-game slide on the heels of a four-game winning streak.

"Offensively in the first half we couldn't make any shots, but we still stayed with it defensively," OKC head coach Scott Brooks said.

O.J. Mayo netted 22 points to lead Milwaukee, which has dropped five in a row.

"It was a heck of an effort tonight having four starters out," Mayo said.

Mayo hit consecutive 3-pointers to stake Milwaukee a 59-56 edge with 4:34 left in the third before the Thunder countered with an 18-7 run that bled into the fourth quarter.

Earlier, the tilt was tied 23-23 after one and 40-40 at the break.
