Thunder wins 10 in a row

NEW YORK - Kevin Durant's 30-point streak has ended at 12 games as he scored 26 in just 30 minutes, and the Oklahoma City Thunder won their 10th in a row with a 120-95 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Serge Ibaka made all 12 shots and added 25 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who were so good that Durant sat the entire fourth quarter, the only way to slow him down right now.

The NBA's leading scorer finished 10 of 12 from the field, though his scoring average during his sensational January dropped from 36.6 to 35.9.

Oklahoma City shot 63.6 per cent, highest in the NBA this season, and outrebounded Brooklyn 41-17.

Shaun Livingston scored 16 points while drawing the impossible assignment of defending Durant.

Australian Andrew Bogut's Warriors beat the Jazz 95-90 as Stephen Curry made eight 3-pointers in scoring a season-high 44 points, leading Golden State past Utah on a night the Jazz honoured former coach Jerry Sloan.

Bogut had 16 points, 17 rebounds and five assists to help overcome the loss of David Lee (shoulder, hip) and a horrendous shooting night from backcourt mate Klay Thompson, who was 3 of 20 for 11 points.

Curry had 13 points in the fourth quarter and the Warriors came from nine points behind to win on back-to-back nights.

In Florida, Arron Afflalo scored 21 points and Tobias Harris added 18 as the Magic ran past the Bucks 113-102.

The Magic snapped a three-game losing streak and extended their home winning streak over Milwaukee to 16 games.

In Minneapolis, Zach Randolph had 26 points and 12 rebounds as the Grizzlies overcame another strong effort by Kevin Love to beat the Timberwolves 94-90.

In Los Angeles, Al Jefferson tied a career high with 40 points, 16 of them in the fourth quarter, and grabbed 18 rebounds to help Charlotte send floundering Los Angeles to its sixth straight defeat 110-100.

The Hawks beat the 76ers 125-99 as Mike Scott and Elton Brand scored 18 points apiece.

Meanwhile in Dallas, Dirk Nowitzki scored 34 points as the Mavericks held off Sacramento 107-103, handing the Kings their sixth straight loss in another game without leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins.
