Durant scores 41, Thunder beats Suns for 30th win

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

Kevin Durant scored 27 of his 41 points in the second half and the Oklahoma City Thunder became the NBA's first 30-game winner of the season with a 102-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.

Russell Westbrook added 36 for the Thunder, but it was Durant who took over in his fourth 40-point game of the season, falling one shy of the season-high 42 he scored two games earlier against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Oklahoma City won its fourth straight, the last three on the road to improve their NBA-best record to 30-8.

Shannon Brown scored 21 for the Suns. Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 15 points, but was the unfortunate would-be defender on Durant's spectacular dunk late in the game.
