OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook scored 21 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Washington Wizards 103-80 on Wednesday night.

Kevin Martin had 18 points for the Thunder, who came in 1½ games behind San Antonio for the top spot in the Western Conference. San Antonio was hosting Denver.

Washington had won its previous two games against Oklahoma City, winning the only meeting during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season before stunning the Thunder 101-99 in Washington on Jan. 7 — the second despite playing without point guard John Wall.

Wall, coming off 47 points in a win over Memphis, overcame 3-of-18 shooting to finish with 18 points and 12 assists, but he had limited help. Numerous injuries and illness left the Wizards with only eight players in uniform.
