Durant plays, leads Thunder past Hawks

Kevin Durant scored 29 points despite a sore ankle and Russell Westbrook hit a clinching 3-pointer, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 111-104 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.
Durant sprained his left ankle two nights earlier and wasn't
cleared to play until an hour before the game, but the NBA's
leading scorer turned in his usual performance. He came in
averaging 28.4 points a game.
Westbrook hit the biggest shot of all. After Marvin Williams'
putback pulled the Hawks within 102-100, the man wearing zero took
a pass from Durant, picked up a screen from Nick Collison and
swished a wide-open jumper from behind the arc. Westbrook finished
with 28 points.
Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 24.
