It wasn't always pretty, but the Oklahoma City Thunder extended their win streak to 12 games with a 100-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.

Only two players scored in double digits for OKC. 

Fortunately for the Thunder, those two players were Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who combined for 68 points and almost by themselves put the Hawks away in fourth quarter. Of OKC's 27 points in the final period, Durant and Westbrook scored 24.


Atlanta got 19 points from Jeff Teague and 17 and 12 rebounds from Josh Smith, but the Hawks couldn't grab the home victory as they fell to 15-8 on the year.
