NBA results, April 3

Kevin Durants rare streak of games with least 25 points continued, and San Antonios run of 19 straight wins came to a halt.
Another streak might mean more than both of them - Oklahoma Citys season sweep. Durant scored 28 points and Russell Westbrook scored 27 to help the host Thunder defeat San Antonio 106-94 on Thursday night in a showdown of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City won all four games against the Spurs this season, and this was the most lopsided result.
Thats a big thing, Westbrook said. When you have a team thats a good basketball team - theyre the No. 1 team in the West, and we want to be the best team, youve got to beat the best. I think we did a great job of that tonight.
Serge Ibaka added 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder, who trail San Antonio by three games with eight remaining.
Durant scored at least 25 points for the 39th consecutive game, the longest streak since Michael Jordan did it 40 consecutive times during the 1986-87 season. He reached 25 on a free throw with 3:31 remaining, drawing a roar from the crowd.
That was a cool feeling, Durant said. I dont want to take those moments for granted. Its not what Im really playing the game for, but it is still cool to see that support from such great fans, no matter what.
Durant can match Jordans mark, the longest such streak in the past 50 years, Friday in Houston.
Thats a lot of games to be scoring 25 points in a row, Westbrook said. You cant just not think about that. Thats an unbelievable stat. I think he may just finish the season doing that. He does that in his sleep.Mavericks 113, Clippers 107:
