OKLAHOMA CITY - Kevin Durant scored 28 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 106-94 National Basketball Association win over San Antonio that ended the Spurs' 19-game winning streak.
The win gave the Thunder a 4-0 season sweep over the Spurs, and they now trail the Spurs by two games in the loss column in the Western Conference with eight games left.
It was a tight game until the fourth quarter, but Oklahoma City (55-19) had too much energy and San Antonio (59-17) were unable to keep pace on either end.
With 5min 25sec left in the game, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook came up with a steal that led to an uncontested reverse, windmill dunk that gave Oklahoma City a 12-point advantage. Patty Mills paced the Spurs with 21 points off the bench.
