The Kevin Durant Show continued Wednesday as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs, 111-105, on Wednesday night. That's five straight wins for OKC after Durant delivered a 36-point, seven-rebound, five-assist outing against the defending West champions.
While this wasn't an especially superlative performance by Durant -- 11 turnovers will do that -- he continued his recent hot streak by breaking the 30-point barrier for a ninth straight game. And unlike in past contests, he got serious support from Reggie Jackson, who scored 27 points on 12-of-17 shooting to supplement KD's effort.
Entering the fourth quarter up by one, the Thunder led throughout the final period and eventually pulled away in the last minute. Durant was a huge part of that, hitting two three-pointers in less than 60 seconds as OKC expanded its four-point lead to eight:
The Thunder shot 10-of-18 from beyond the arc in this game, including a 3-of-3 effort by Jackson.
San Antonio got a monster game from Tony Parker, who scored a game-high 37 points on 14-of-22 shooting, but the team lost Kawhi Leonard to a broken finger in the first half and clearly missed him as the Thunder pulled away. San Antonio now trails OKC by a half-game in the Western Conference.
