Kevin Durant had his first career triple-double with 25 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists and Oklahoma City held off a late rally by visiting Golden State.
Russell Westbrook broke out of a shooting slump with a team-high 30 points as the Thunder won for the seventh time in eight games and notched their fifth straight victory over the Warriors.
Kevin Martin came off the bench to score 23 points, including three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, to hand Golden State its seventh consecutive loss in Oklahoma City.
Stephen Curry scored 22 points and David Lee added 19 and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who cut a 22-point fourth-quarter deficit to seven on Curry's 3-pointer with just under six minutes to play.
That was as close as Golden State would get. Serge Ibaka hit a jumper and Martin drilled his fifth 3-pointer to build the lead back to 110-98 before Durant supplied the dagger by banging home a 3-pointer for a 115-102 edge with 3:27 left.
The Thunder used a 12-2 second-quarter run to build a 59-46 halftime lead, and got six straight points from Westbrook during a 16-6 spurt in the third to extend the lead to 94-73 entering the fourth.GAME NOTEBOOK:
