NBA: Warriors in seventh heaven as Durant, Thompson star in win over Bucks

(AFP) - Kevin Durant scored 33 points as the Golden State Warriors secured their seventh straight victory with a roller-coaster 124-121 National Basketball Association win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday (Nov 19).

Durant led the scoring with team-mate Klay Thompson adding 29 as the Warriors held off a ferocious Bucks rally in the fourth quarter to take the win.

Milwaukee had recovered from a 14-point deficit in the final quarter and closed to 122-120 after Jabari Parker made a three-point play with 2min 33sec on the clock.

The Bucks had a chance to take the lead when Giannis Antetokounmpo forced a turnover but was unable to convert a floater.

Mirza Teletovic also missed with an open three-pointer, handing Golden State possession with 93 seconds on the clock to close out the win.

Thompson and Durant combined to go 19-for-34 from the field with 10 three-pointers.

Stephen Curry chipped in with 20 points and Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala 10 apiece.
