Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant said the other day he wished his streak of scoring at least 25 points in a game would end. He got his wish Tuesday when he scored 23 points in the Thunder’s 107-92 victory at Sacramento.
Durant played 31 minutes. His streak ended at a record 41 (since the 3-pointer was instituted) consecutive games. (Oscar Robertson had a streak of 46 in 1963-64 and Wilt Chamberlain had one of 80 in 1961-62, according to ESPN.com).
Oklahoma City (56-21) will now bring a lead of 1 1/2 games over the Clippers in the race for the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference standings when it visits Staples Center on Wednesday night to take on the Clippers (55-23).
