Durant leads OKC charge in comfortable win over Warriors.
The Oklahoma City Thunder moved a half-game clear of the San Antonio Spurs at the top of the Western Conference after their 116-97 win over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.
Kevin Durant dropped 31 points in just less than 35 minutes on the court, and came agonisingly close to securing a triple-double with 10 rebounds and eight assists.
Kevin Martin also played an important role, as he contributed 23 points off the bench, helping the Thunder move their record to 58-21 for the season.
Golden State saw their lead over the Houston Rockets reduced to just a half-game in the race for the No.6 seed, as they were unable to prevent the loss despite 22 points and seven assists from Stephen Curry.
The Thunder play the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night, while the Warriors take on the Los Angeles Lakers.
