Westbrook did most of his damage against All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry, who finished with just 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting for Toronto. Westbrook is the current Western Conference player of the month and is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Enes Kanter added a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Serge Ibaka contributed 21 points of his own in the win. Ibaka had 5 blocks on the defensive end for a Thunder team who holds the 8th and final playoff spot in the west.
Oklahoma City shot 51 percent from the floor and outrebounded Toronto 49-33.
The Raptors got 24 points from DeMar DeRozan and 20 from Terrence Ross, but lost their 3rd straight game overall. DeRozan missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer with under 10 seconds remaining, as the Thunder would seal the game with free throws. The Raptors did hold a 7-point lead in the first half and led by 3 at the half, as DeRozan finished with 16 first-half points.
The Thunder shot a red-hot 56 percent in the first half, but turned the ball over 10 times.
Westbrook has been on fire since winning the All-Star game MVP, averaging 34.3 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 11.4 assists since the break.
The Thunder hold a 35-28 record in the battle for a Western Conference playoff spot and will host the Los Angeles Clippers tomorrow night. The Raptors fell to 38-25 on the year and will visit the San Antonio Spurs tonight.
