The Lakers showed their usual fight, trying to make a couple of second-half comebacks, but Durant had every answer to start the fourth quarter, scoring 12 of his 29 in the first six minutes of the fourth, to extend his streak of games with at least 25 points to a career-long 30.
After lighting up the Thunder for 114 points four days ago, the Lakers shot only 39.4 percent from the field. Though they made 13-of-27 on 3-pointers, they shot only 24-of-67 on 2s, and 15-for-25 from the free-throw line.
How it happened: With Durant in foul trouble, Westbrook took over the third quarter scoring 15 of his 29 points to extend the Thunder's 14-point halftime lead to 24 heading into the fourth. From there it was just about learning from past transgressions and not letting the lead slip.
What it means: After the euphoria of stunning the Thunder on Sunday, it's back to normal from the slogging Lakers. They hadn't played since that game, and possibly some of that fresh momentum had worn off. The 29-point loss ties them with the Jazz for the worst record (22-43) in the West.
Hits: The Lakers shot 13-of-27 on 3-pointers (48.1 percent).
Ryan Kelly had 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with six assists and an impressive block of Ibaka.
Misses: Meeks followed up his career-high 42-point game with 19 but on 6-of-15 shooting.
Stat of the game: Durant and Westbrook combined for 58 points on 17-of-34 shooting, with 12 assists and six rebounds.
Up next: The Lakers continue their odd stretch of games, playing at San Antonio on Friday, then taking another four days off before hosting the Spurs Wednesday.
