The forward scored 46 points during the 105-97 win, which moves them above the Blazers at the top of the Northwest Division.
The NBA's top scorer told reporters: "Total team effort. We didn't get discouraged after they hit tough shots and we missed shots, and we got a good win.
"[Kendrick Perkins] and Serge [Ibaka] did a great job early on contesting LaMarcus [Aldridge]'s jump shot, but he's a great player and he was knocking them down.
"In the fourth quarter, of course, after playing last night, he's a little tired. We forced him all the way out close to the three-point line and made him shoot some tough ones and we were able to rebound and hit shots on the other end."
The Thunder travel to Southwest Division leaders the San Antonio Spurs later today.
