WATCH: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook show no mercy versus Kobe-less Lakers

Kevin Durant wined and dined with the LA Lakers’ star Kobe Bryant the night before.

Then, with The Black Mamba sidelined, he and Russell Westbrook tore up the opposition.

The Oklahoma City Thunder routed the LA Lakers, 118-78, with Kobe sitting this one out due to a sore shoulder.

Durant top-scored for the Thunder with 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting, along with eight boards, while Westbrook notched a double-double of 13 points and 11 dimes. Both didn’t even top 30 minutes of playing time.

With the Lakers’ defense struggling to contain the high-octane Thunder attack, there were plenty of highlights, which you can catch below:

The Thunder remain in third place in the West with an 18-9 card.
