Durant, Thunder Pull Away to beat Suns 122-106
PHOENIX (AP) — Kevin Durant scored 25 of his 32 points in the second half and Oklahoma City pulled away in the final four minutes to hand the Phoenix Suns their eighth consecutive loss, 122-106 on Monday night.
The Suns, losers of 23 of their last 25 games, were in it most of the way and led by as many as six late in the third quarter. But Durant sank two 3-pointers in a 16-4 Oklahoma City run to finish the game.
Russell Westbrook added 29 points for the Thunder, who were coming off a 116-108 loss at Golden State on Saturday night.
Markieff Morris scored 23 points for Phoenix, and Archie Goodwin had 20.
