Thunder Powers Past Spurs, Extends Win Streak

Posted: Updated:

The Thunder shot 49 percent from the floor Saturday night, putting on yet another spectacular offensive display en route to a 113-100 win over San Antonio.  The win improves the Thunder's win streak to nine games.  Thunder has surpassed the 100-point mark in all nine wins.

Russell Westbrook was nearly unstoppable, scoring 31 points and dishing out eight assists to lead Oklahoma City to its 17th win in 18 games.  The Spurs kept Kevin Durant in check, holding the NBA's scoring leader to just 17 points, but Reggie Jackson's 21 points off the bench proved way too much for San Antonio to handle.   

Serge Ibaka also put up a strong effort, hauling in 14 rebounds to match his 14 points.

Both teams were hot from deep, combining for 21-46 from 3-point range.  The Thunder hit 12 of 27 (44.4 percent) while San Antonio shot 9-19.  

Tony Parker led the Spurs with 23 and eight assists, while Tim Duncan and Marco Belinelli each added 17.  San Antonio was without forward Kawhi Leonard, who missed the game due to a dental procedure.      

The Thunder commanded the paint, outrebounding the Spurs 48-37 and blocking nine shots.

The game was knotted at 21-21 after the first quarter, but that's when the Thunder made its move.  OKC outscored the Spurs 40-29 in the second to take a commanding 61-50 lead into the break.  San Antonio pulled within five at 75-70 on two Manu Ginobili free throws with 4:11 to play in the third, but the Thunder extended the lead back to nine at the end of the period.  

San Antonio had one last push, opening the fourth on a 7-0 spurt to come within 85-82 at the 10:23 mark, but that's as close as it got.   

Next up for OKC (22-4) is a home date with the Toronto Raptors.  Tip is set for 6 p.m. on Sunday evening.  The Thunder is 13-0 at home this season. The Spurs (21-6) host Toronto on Monday.
