HOUSTON -- Kevin Durant scored 30 points, Russell Westbrook
added 23 points and 13 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder
snapped the franchise's 11-game losing streak in Houston with a
118-112 win over the Rockets on Wednesday night.
  
Thabo Sefolosha grabbed 13 rebounds, and Serge Ibaka and Jeff
Green added 16 points apiece for the Thunder. The franchise won in
Houston for the first time since Feb. 22, 2005, when the team was
still the Seattle SuperSonics.
  
Luis Scola scored 31 points, but none in the fourth quarter, for
Houston. The Rockets played without leading scorer Kevin Martin
(sore right wrist) and backup center Brad Miller (sore left knee)
for the second straight game.
  
Houston scored a season-high 70 points in the paint, but went 5
for 18 from 3-point range.
