OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 32 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Chicago Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win.
Russell Westbrook had 20 points and reserve Reggie Jackson added 18 to help the Thunder improve to 13-0 at Chesapeake Arena. Oklahoma City is the only NBA team with a perfect home record.
Joakim Noah had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the banged-up Bulls, who have lost four straight and seven of eight. Taj Gibson scored 16 points and D.J. Augustin added 15.
Chicago played without Kirk Hinrich (back tightness) and Luol Deng (sore Achilles), and Jimmy Butler left during the game with a right ankle injury.
The Thunder led by 15 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, but the Bulls pulled within seven on Augustin's 3 with 8:50 to go. Oklahoma City then outscored Chicago 16-4 over a late 5 1/2 -minute stretch to pull away.
