The Oklahoma City Thunder captured their ninth straight victory with a 113-100 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.
Russell Westbrook was sensational throughout and led all scorers with 31 points on 13-of-22 shooting. He also dished out eight assists and turned the ball over just three times. It was his fourth 30-point outing of the season.
Kevin Durant added 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting in the winning effort, but the real star aside from Westbrook was Reggie Jackson, who poured in 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting off the bench.
Serge Ibaka recorded a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds. He also blocked three shots in a winning effort.
As a team, the Thunder shot 48.9 percent from the floor and 44.4 percent from three, and were buoyed by a 40-point second quarter and 28-point fourth quarter.
Although the Spurs were able to hang with the Thunder early on, they couldn't keep pace with Scott Brooks' prolific offense as the game wore on, and shot just 42.7 percent from the field in the loss.
Tony Parker led San Antonio with 23 points and eight assists after sitting out two games with a bruised shin, but converted on just six of his 14 shots.
Tim Duncan added 17 points and 10 rebounds in the loss while Marco Belinelli dropped in 17 points and scored five of the team's nine three-pointers on the night.
The next matchup for both teams will be with the Toronto Raptors, as the Thunder get set to host them tomorrow and the Spurs will do the same on Monday.
