Danny Granger scored a game-high 32 points to lead Indiana with Troy Murphy adding a double-double with 22 points and 13 rebounds and Roy Hibbert finishing with 20 points as the Pacers recorded their largest margin of victory this season.

The Blue and Gold continued to pour it on in the second half, building a 31-point advantage with 3:41 remaining in the ballgame.

Oklahoma City would close the game on a 15-4 run to make the final margin a little more respectable.

Jeff Green led the Thunder with 20 points as all-star Kevin Durant was held to 16 points on 4-16 shooting from the field. Oklahoma City falls to 42-26.

Indiana improves to 24-46. The Pacers will try to halt their nine-game road losing streak on Tuesday when they face the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
