It looked like the Thunder were about to blow the Nets away in the third quarter, when they opened up that 15-point lead. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were having fun, bouncing all over the Barclays Center.

There were smiles all around.
Those two nasty losses were finally in the rearview mirror Friday night, cast aside with a 107-68 pummeling of the Magic at Amway Center.
