Russell Westbrook had 27 points and nine assists, Kevin Durant added 25 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder blasted the weary Los Angeles Lakers 119-90 on Monday night in the opening game of the Western Conference semifinals.

The Thunder took a 15-point halftime lead, then opened the third
quarter with a 15-2 blitz filled with crowd-pleasing 3-pointers and
dunks.

Oklahoma City led by as many as 35 points, getting a measure of
vengeance for the elbow Metta World Peace delivered to the head of
the Thunder's James Harden three weeks earlier -- and without
needing dirty tactics to do it.

Thunder starting center Kendrick Perkins limped off after aggravating a hip injury from the first round.

Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum scored 20 points each for the Lakers and Bynum had 14 rebounds.
