Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Thunder blew a fourth-quarter lead, but recovered in overtime and beat the Dallas Mavericks Friday.

Kevin Durant scored 52 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder (32-8) to a 117-114 overtime win over the Dallas Mavericks (17-23) Friday. The win was Oklahoma City's sixth straight and it snapped a four-game winning streak by Dallas.

The Thunder led much of the game, owning a seven-point lead at halftime and pushing the lead to nine after three quarters. Dallas responded in the fourth, out-scoring the Thunder 22-10 to open the quarter and taking a lead into the final minutes.

The Thunder took the lead back on a pair of free throws by Durant with two minutes remaining. A dunk by Vince Carter cut the lead to one with six seconds left. Russell Westbrook made two free throws, but O.J. Mayo hit a three-pointer with two seconds left to force overtime.

In overtime, Durant hit a jumper with less than 20 seconds left that would prove to be the game-winner as the Mavs missed two three-pointers in the final 17 seconds.

Durant also had nine rebounds. Westbrook scored 31 points with six assists. Kevin Martin and Serge Ibaka each scored 11 points.

Carter led the Mavericks with 29 points off the bench. Mayo and Dirk Nowitzki scored 18 each.
