Westbrook leads Thunder past Kings without triple-double

Westbrook leads Thunder past Kings without triple-doubleā€

Adams was voted OKC's player of the match, coming away with 16 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block for his 14th double-double of the season.

Oklahoma City led by as many as 27 points and looked on pace to let Westbrook sit the fourth quarter for the second straight game.

"I've never played against a player like that", Kings rookie George Papagiannis said after going toe to toe with the Oklahoma City Thunder's Steven Adams, one of the more physical players in the National Basketball Association. The Thunder are tied with the Los Angeles Clippers for fifth in the Western Conference.

The streaky Doug McDermott had 21 points in 21 minutes off the bench for the Thunder, while Georgios Papagiannis had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Sacramento. Led by Collison, Sacramento took a quick 10-9 advantage. The Thunder outscored them 20-9 the rest of the quarter to grab a double-digit lead.

That late playing time wasn't enough to get Westbrook over the triple-double hump. Kanter wore out the lighter Willie Cauley-Stein in in the paint as he racked up 10 first-half points.

Bay Hill: Kevin Kisner, Charley Hoffman tied for lead
First-round leader Fred Couples had a 70 to fall into a tie for third with Kevin Sutherland (65) at 11 under. Remember these guys? The last time they played, Fred Couples won the Chubb Classic on February 19.

The home side extended their lead to 22 at the break, leading 63-41.

Sacramento could never get its offense rolling.

NOTES: Oklahoma City is third in the National Basketball Association in fastbreak points per game at 17.2. Andre Roberson played suffocating defense on Hield while Cauley-Stein, Darren Collison and Labissiere couldn't buy a basket.

Oklahoma City hosts the Golden State Warriors - minus injured star and former Thunder Kevin Durant - on Monday.
