OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant recorded his first triple-double of the season with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied for yet another fourth-quarter win, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 113-103 on Sunday night.

Oklahoma City extended its winning streak to seven games, tops in the Western Conference, and moved to 9-0 on the season at home. It's the franchise's longest home winning streak to open a season since the 2004-05 campaign, when the team played in Seattle.

Kevin Martin, in his return to Oklahoma City after joining Minnesota during the offseason, led the Timberwolves with 24 points, while Nikola Pekovic had 22 points and 10 rebounds. The Thunder have beaten Minnesota eight straight times at home, dating to the 2008-09 season, the franchise's first in Oklahoma City.
