Kevin Durant scored 21 of his game-high 42 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 112-111 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

The win secured the second-seed berth in the Western Conference for the Thunder (59-23), who will open the playoffs on Saturday against Memphis.

Oklahoma City trailed by 10 points in the fourth but Durant kicked his game into high gear and showed why he is the leading candidate to win the league MVP Award.

The Washington Wizards, set to make their first NBA playoff appearance since 2008, captured the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference by finishing their regular season with a 118-102 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Kemba Walker scored 22 points, including eight in overtime, as the Charlotte Bobcats outlasted the Chicago Bulls 91-86 in the regular-season finale between two Eastern Conference playoff teams.
