Durant, streaking Thunder beat Hawks, 100-92

ATLANTA (AP) - Kevin Durant set a season high with 41 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder held off the Atlanta Hawks 100-92 on Wednesday night for their 12th straight win.

Russell Westbrook had 27 points - 21 in the first half - and 11 assists. Durant, who had 18 points in the fourth period, had 13 rebounds.

No other Oklahoma City player scored in double figures.

Oklahoma City (21-4) improved the NBA's best record and atoned for a 104-95 home loss to the Hawks on Nov. 4. That loss left Oklahoma City 1-2; it is 20-2 since then and hasn't lost since Nov. 23 at Boston.

The 12 straight wins matches the longest streak for the franchise since 1996, when it had a 14-game winning streak as the Seattle SuperSonics.
