Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook scored 31 points apiece and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New Orleans Hornets 101-93 Monday night for their 10th straight home win.
One night after a historic performance featuring big scoring nights from All-Stars Durant and Westbrook and a triple-double from Serge Ibaka, the Thunder built a 26-point lead and then had to scrap it out at the end.
Jarrett Jack scored 18 points to lead New Orleans, which had a surprising three-game winning streak after losing 23 of 25.
The Hornets trailed by as much as 68-42 midway through the third quarter, then made a series of runs to make it interesting right down to the final minute.
New Orleans was within six before Westbrook hit four free throws in the final 48 seconds.
