• Depleted Thunder thrash Celtics


    BOSTON: Oklahoma City shrugged off the absence of red-hot scorer Kevin Durant on Friday (Saturday in Manila) as they rolled to a 101-83 NBA rout of the Boston Celtics. Serge Ibaka scored 21 points for the Thunder, leading five Oklahoma City players in double points as the Western Conference leaders proved themselves capable of coping without their two biggest stars — Most Valuable Player candidate Durant and Russell Westbrook. Durant, who has scored 30-plus points in nine straight games, injured his right shoulder in Wednesday’s victory over San Antonio.
