Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork. Jonathan Isaac Jersey .com) - Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined to score 45 points with 13 assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 103-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday. In what would have been a matchup of the last two NBA MVPs, Durant was the only one to play as Clevelands LeBron James sat out with left knee discomfort. Westbrook paced the Thunder with 26 points to go along with eight assists and Durants 19 points helped close out their fourth straight win. Kyrie Irving had to pick up the slack with James on the bench and he accounted for 20 points on 7-of-21 shooting. Kevin Love netted 18 points with 16 rebounds for the Cavs, who had their eight-game winning streak halted. Oklahoma City opened the fourth just where it left off the third. Reggie Jackson scored the quarters first five points and Anthony Morrow knocked down a triple to stake the hosts to an 86-66 margin with 10:24 to play. Cleveland didnt falter, however, as Anderson Varejaos five points led a 7-0 charge that brought the visitors back to within 10, 91-81, with 5:47 left. Tristan Thompson then made it a four-point game on his tip-in off an Irving miss. Irving got caught on a switch on the Thunders ensuing possession and Durant finished the play with a dunk over Love. Durant proceeded to pick Irvings pocket the next time down the floor and essentially sealed it with a jumper that extended the margin to 99-91 with 1:17 left. Loves 3-pointer tied the score at 57-57 with just under 6 1/2 minutes left in the third. Thats about the time of the game that Oklahoma City locked down on defense and opened the game up entering the fourth. Westbrook followed Loves trey with a layup that ignited a 10-0 run. Serge Ibaka and Morrow each netted 3-pointers during the run that Westbrook capped with a pair of free throws. Cleveland managed just nine points over the final six-plus minutes as Durants 3 preceded Dion Waiters layup in the closing seconds, and the Thunder held a 78-66 advantage after three. Early in the first, the Thunder took their first lead of the game on a Westbrook jumper. Cleveland then went on a 13-2 run that Waiters capped with a 3-pointer for an 18-8 lead with 5:01 left. The Cavs led 26-18 after the first quarter, but Oklahoma City managed to tie the game at 47-47 by halftime. Game Notes OKC is 4-1 since Durants return from offseason foot surgery ...

"Im very pleased to be able to add a quarterback with Adrians experience and skill set," Calgary head coach and general manager John Hufnagel said in a statement.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers are hoping to get off to a fast start this season for a change -- with or without Cam Newton. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Friday the teams Pro Bowl quarterback threw passes and took all of his anticipated reps at practice with the first team, raising some hope that he might play Sunday at Tampa Bay. Rivera said Newton "took the next step" in his recovery from fractured ribs. However, Rivera reiterated he wont make a decision on Newton until Sunday, possibly before the team arrives at the stadium. "He looked pretty good," Rivera said. "It was a good sign. But we will see how he feels. He will get treatment (Saturday) morning and meet with trainers." Newton is listed as questionable on the teams injury report. The Panthers have lost five straight season openers and are 6-13 overall entering their 20th season. They lost their season opener at Tampa Bay 16-10 two years ago and will look to avoid a similar lacklustre performance on Sunday. Whether Newton is part of Carolinas game plan remains to be seen. Hes never missed a start in three seasons for Carolina. If he does play, hell wear a thick flak jacket to protect the ribs he busted in an Aug. 22 preseason game at New England. Rivera said he will listen to input from Newton, the trainers, his assistant coaches and even general manager Dave Gettleman before making a decision on whether Newton starts. "I have to listen to whats going and how everybody feels," Rivera said. "The truth of the matter is I have to make a decision that is ultimately in the best interest of his health and in the best interest of the football team. Our concern is his health, first and foremost." Rivera was more certainly optimistic than on Thursdaay when he talked about not wanting to risk putting Newton on the field if he couldnt protect himself. Grant Hill Jersey. Newton didnt speak to reporters on Friday. Derek Anderson would start if Newton is still too sore to play. Anderson has started 43 games during his nine-year NFL career, but none since 2010. Hes only thrown four passes in the past three seasons with the Panthers. Asked if hes ready to play, Anderson replied "Always." "I thought I had a good week of preparation and we will finish it tomorrow and see what happens," Anderson said. Anderson said the game plan will be exactly the same regardless of who starts. Carolina has had some real duds in its three season opening losses under Rivera. That has led to some poor starts for the season with the Panthers going 1-5 in 2011, 1-6 in 2012 and 1-3 last year. Unlike the first two seasons, the Panthers were able to pull out of that early funk in 2013 and win 11 of their final 12 games to finish 12-4 and win the NFC South championship. But theyd prefer not to have to take that route again. "Starting with a win is the way to go," said middle linebacker Luke Kuechly. "It gives you a chance to say, All right, we got the first one behind us and you dont have to keep waiting for it. That is what hurt us last year. We lost the first game and it took us a while to get going. If you can get going it sets the tone for the season." Said linebacker Thomas Davis: "Its important to start fast because we dont want to be in the same situation we were in last year and start feeling pressed. We are confident with our team. Its just about executing early. Sure, we were able to pick it up last season, but we dont want to start out slow like that again."
