Kevin Durant scored 19 points and Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 11 rebounds to help Oklahoma City extend its best season-opening start at home with a 95-73 win over the struggling Utah Jazz on Sunday night. The Thunder (9-3) played without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, who sat out to rest his surgically repaired right knee. Even without Westbrook, Oklahoma City's lead swelled to as many as 37 points in the third quarter. The Thunder have won six straight at home to open the season, their best opening stretch since moving to Oklahoma City.
