Russell Westbrook tallied 26 points and five assists, while Serge Ibaka provided 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, who dropped their first three games since Westbrook returned before winning two straight.

OKC has beaten Charlotte seven consecutive times.

Al Jefferson had 25 points and seven rebounds and Anthony Tolliver supplied 17 points for Charlotte, which has dropped two in a reel on the heels of a four- game winning streak.
