76ers vs. Thunder results: Philadelphia gets blown out of Oklahoma

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia is unable to keep with with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant as Oklahoma City cruises.

Nick Young scored 21 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers kept it close for a half, but Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant heated up, and the Oklahoma City Thunder outscored Philadelphia by 21 in the second half en route to a 109-85 victory at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

The 76ers were plagued by an inability to shoot (40.5 percent from the field), and turnovers (20). Oklahoma City shot 52 percent from the field--and 59 percent from downtown--while outrebounding Philadelphia by seven. The 76ers held only one lead in the contest.

Young's 21 paced Philadelphia. Jrue Holiday added 15 and Dorrell Wright 11. Westbrook scored 27 and Durant 26 for Oklahoma City, while Kevin Martin (16) and Serge Ibaka (15) were also in double digits.

The loss is the 76ers fourth in the last five games, and they sit a game behind Boston for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. Things don't get any easier, as they travel to San Antonio for the second of a back-to-back on Saturday night.
