Thunder End Spurs Winning Streak

(Oklahoma City, OK) -- The Thunder stopped the Spurs 19-game winning streak by defeating San Antonio, 106-94, in Oklahoma City behind 28 points and seven rebounds from Kevin Durant. Russell Westbrook helped out with 27 points, six assists and four steals. Kendrick Perkins and Reggie Jackson both returned to the lineup for the Thunder. Jackson chipped in 14 points, four assists and four boards off the bench. OKC trails the Spurs by three games for the top spot in the West. Tim Duncan and Boris Diaw each scored 17 points in the loss.  Patty Mills had a team-high 21 points off the bench.


Mavericks Hold Off Clippers

(Los Angeles, CA) -- The Clippers almost pulled off another fourth quarter comeback against the Mavericks, but fell short as Dallas held on for a 113-107 win at the STAPLES Center. Los Angles had only won two games all season when trailing heading into the fourth quarter and both came opposite the Mavs. Dirk Nowitzki led the way in the victory with 26 points and 11 rebounds. Jose Calderon added 19 points for Dallas, which sits in seventh place in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of the Grizzlies and Suns. J.J. Redick and Darren Collison each missed a three in the last 60 seconds that would have given Los Angeles the lead.  Blake Griffin posted a triple-double with 25 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who are two-and-a-half games behind the Thunder for the second-seed.


Bulls Host Bucks

(Chicago, IL) -- The Bulls hit the court tonight looking for their fourth consecutive win facing the Bucks at the United Center. Chicago has moved to 43-32 which is good for fourth in the Eastern Conference. They are tied with the Raptors, but Toronto holds the tie-breaker because they're winning the Atlantic Division. Milwaukee has lost nine of 10 and has the worst record in the league.
