Kevin Durant had 28 points, nine assists and seven rebounds Vince Dunn Jerseyin just over three quarters, helping the Oklahoma City Thunder cruise to a 130-109 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. Russell Westbrook scored 24 points and Enes Kanter had 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder, who had lost six of their last 10 games. Isaiah Thomas led Boston with points, and Tyler Zeller had 16. The Celtics lost their third straight after winning six of seven. It was their most lopsided home loss this season. Durant has scored 20 or more points in 60 of the 61 games he's played this season, including 53 straight. He came out with just under nine minutes to play. It was Boston's second straight loss at TD Garden following a 14-game home streak. Before the game, Boston coach Brad Stevens said that Durant's ability to score is ''ridiculous.'' The All-Star forward then went Justin Schultz Jerseyout and scored on his team's first three possessions, hitting a 3-pointer from the right wing before consecutive turnarounds over 6-foot-4 guard Marcus Smart. When he stepped to the foul line midway into the third quarter, the crowd broke into a chant of ''Come to Boston!'' The 6-9 forward is a free agent at the end of the season. Oklahoma City, which never trailed, led by 11 at halftime and built it to 28 points late in the third quarter. The Celtics scored the first basket in the second half before the Thunder went on an 11-0 run over the ensuing 2:32. Serge Ibaka started the spree with consecutive jumpers, the second a 3 that made it 71-57. Oklahoma City made it 98-71 on Westbrook's 3-pointer that capped a 10-0 run with 2:59 left in the third. Oklahoma City hit eight of 16 shots from behind the 3-point line in the first half en route to a 66-55 lead at intermission.
