Durant's 30 Help Thunder Put Bulls Away
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 30 points, Russell Westbrook added 28 points and 10 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the new look Chicago Bulls 106-95 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.

Durant and Westbrook each powered down two-handed dunks during a late 11-0 surge that put the game away. Neither team had led by more than eight before Oklahoma City started pulling away in the final 3 minutes.

Westbrook raced down the court for his slam after Serge Ibaka swatted away Derrick Rose's shot, then turned it into a three-point play. The next trip down the court, Durant blew by Luol Deng for his own jam. Jeff Green's 3-pointer from the right corner made it 104-91 with 89 seconds left.

Rose scored 28 points to lead the Bulls in Tom Thibodeaux's debut as head coach.
