Durant scores 37 as Thunder beat Celtics 109-104

BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 37 points, Jeff Green hit two 3-pointers in the last two minutes and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Boston Celtics 109-104 Wednesday night.

The victory was the Thunder's 46th of the season, doubling their total for all last season as they remained in sixth place in the Western Conference.

The Celtics fell out of a third-place tie in the East with the Atlanta Hawks, who beat the Los Angeles Lakers 109-92.

Green, whose draft rights were traded by the Celtics when they picked up Ray Allen after the 2006-07 season, gave the Thunder a 105-101 lead with a 3-pointer with 1:56 to go. Then he connected again with 1:22 left for a 108-104 advantage to finish with 17 points.

Boston was led by Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace with 18 points each.
