Durant leads Thunder past Hawks
Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Durant filled the stat sheet with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame a late Atlanta charge to top the Hawks 101-92 from Philips Arena.
Paul Millsap and Shelvin Mack drained consecutive triples for a four-point margin with 3:28 remaining. Mack then cut it to 95-92 with a jumper with two minutes left, but Russell Westbrook went to his left hand on a reverse layup on the other end and Durant made 4-of-4 from the foul line to put it away.
Westbrook scored 14 points with 11 assists for OKC, winners in three straight and 11 of 12. Serge Ibaka added 19 points and 10 boards.
Millsap's 23-point, 12-rebound effort paced Atlanta, which had its brief two- game winning streak come to an end to fall back to .500. The loss leaves Miami and Indiana as the only two teams in the Eastern Conference with a winning record.
Jeff Teague and Mack had 17 points and six assists apiece in the setback.
