    Kevin Durant scored 28 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 106-94 win over San Antonio that ended the Spurs' 19-game winning streak.

    Durant has now scored at least 25 points for 39 consecutive game, the longest streak since Michael Jordan did it 40 consecutive times during the 1986-87 season.

    The win gave the Thunder a 4-0 season sweep over San Antonio and Oklahoma City now trail the Spurs by two games in the loss column in the Western Conference with eight games left.

    In another match, Dirk Nowitzki scored 26 points and pulled down 11 rebounds as the Dallas Mavericks held off the Los Angeles Clippers 113-107.

    The win put the Mavericks a half game ahead of the idle Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies and alone in the seventh spot in the Western Conference playoff race.

    Dallas (45-31) also snapped a nine-game winning streak at home by the Clippers (54-23).
