OKLAHOMA CITY - Kevin Durant had 39 points and 10 rebounds, Russell Westbrook added 30 points and 13 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the pesky Sacramento Kings, 113-107, on Tuesday.
The Kings trailed by three points after Carl Landry, a 2007 draft pick by the Seattle SuperSonics, hit two free throws with 2 minutes, 15 seconds to play, but Nenad Krstic lobbed the ball to Durant for a two-handed alley-oop slam at the opposite end.
Landry had a follow dunk to make it 111-107 with 34 seconds left, but Sacramento opted not to foul and the shot clock ran all the way down before Durant missed a baseline jumper.
Francisco Garcia missed a contested 3-pointer in the final five seconds for the Kings.
