CHARLOTTE, North Carolina -- The Oklahoma City Thunder recorded its 20th win of the season on the road, beating the Charlotte Bobcats 99-81.

The team landed 30 of its 36 free throw attempts, continuing to lead the league by hitting 84.8 percent of their shots at the charity line. The Thunder hit seven of their 16 attempts from the three-point line.
