Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Russell Westbrook amassed a season-high 37 points and Kevin Durant added 27 as the Oklahoma City Thunder got back on track with a 127-111 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Westbrook made good on 13-of-22 field goal attempts to go along with nine assists and seven rebounds in a terrific all-around display that helped the Northwest Division leaders halt a season-long three-game losing streak. Kevin Martin contributed 19 points off the bench for the Thunder, who shot a sharp 57.8 percent from the floor and finished a perfect 22-of-22 from the foul line.

Alexey Shved paced seven Minnesota players in double figures with 17 points, but the Timberwolves failed to build off Wednesday's home win over Philadelphia in their first outing after the All-Star break.

Andrei Kirilenko and Dante Cunningham each registered 15 points in defeat, with Ricky Rubio compiling 13 points and nine assists for Minnesota.
