In 13 games with the 66ers, Lamb is averaging 22.8 points — ranking first among D-League players who have played at least seven games — 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 35.3 minutes. He's shooting 46.4 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from behind the 3-point line and 91.5 percent from the free-throw line.

DURANT RECORDS FIRST DOUBLE-DOUBLE SINCE DECEMBER

It took 19 games and more than a month. But Kevin Durant on Friday finally registered another double-double.

Durant scored 24 points with a game-high 11 rebounds in the Thunder's 10-point win at Sacramento. It was his first double-double since Dec. 19, when he scored 41 points with 13 rebounds in a win at Atlanta.

Durant started the season by recording six double-doubles in his first 11 games.

Friday was just his eighth of the season.

QUOTABLE

Sacramento coach Keith Smart on Durant's 24-point game Friday against the Kings — “If he only has 24 points, then you slowed him down a little bit.”

TIP-INS

Sunday's game will be the third of four meetings between the Thunder and Lakers. The two teams will meet for the final time on March 5 in Oklahoma City. … Durant scored 42 points against the Lakers inside Staples Center on Jan. 11. Westbrook had 27 points and 10 assists. … The Lakers were without center Dwight Howard and power forward Pau Gasol in the last meeting. Both are expected to play Sunday. … Oklahoma City is a conference-best 22-5 against Western Conference opponents. … The Thunder is 15-0 when it shoots at least 50 percent and 14-1 when five players score at least 10 points.
