Thunder Crushes Raptors On Election Night

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

On one of America's biggest days, the team from Canada stood no chance.

As President Obama and Governor Romney awaited America's decision, the Oklahoma City Thunder was busy putting a 108-88 beat down on the Toronto Raptors.

Russell Westbrook's 19 points and eight assists led a very balanced Thunder effort. Serge Ibaka contributed 17 points on 8-9 shooting, while Kevin Durant and Kevin Martin added 15 points apiece.

The 20-point margin of victory allowed OKC to get some young players some good playing time. Eric Maynor scored nine points in 20 minutes, while Jeremy Lamb and Reggie Jackson each played six minutes and scored three points. Perry Jones III played 18 minutes but did not score.

Jonas Valanciunas led the way for Toronto with 18 points and six rebounds, while Andrea Bargnani also added 16 points and six boards in the losing effort.

The Thunder avoided falling two games below .500 for the first time since the end of its inaugural season in 2008/2009. OKC is back in action Thursday night at Chicago and returns home Friday against the Pistons.
