Toronto cut the cap to 83-67 on a basket by James Johnson with 5:38 left, capping a 12-1 run, but Harden and Fisher each hit 3s to keep the Thunder comfortably ahead. Harden scored 12 points in the fourth quarter.
Serge Ibaka had five blocked shots to go with eight points and six rebounds for the Thunder.
NOTES: Calderon played despite a shiner under his right eye, the result of an inadvertent elbow he took last Wednesday against Philadelphia. He missed Toronto's game on Friday because of the injury but wore no protection on Sunday. ... Toronto F Andrea Bargnani didn't play in the second half because of left calf tightness. ... Toronto finished 8-10 against Western Conference foes this season. The Raptors haven't posted a .500 or better record against the West since the 1999-00 season. ... Oklahoma City is 12-3 after a loss this season and 7-0 in Sunday games.
