Durant Scores 32 as Thunder Beat Nets for 6th Straight NBA Win

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Kevin Durant had 32 points and Russell Westbrook added 25 points and nine assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the host Brooklyn Nets 117-111.

The Thunder (15-4) hit 61 percent of their shots at the Barclays Center for their sixth straight win in the National Basketball Association. Deron Williams had 33 points to lead the Nets (11-6), who had a six-game home winning streak snapped.

The Nets played without leading scorer Brook Lopez, their starting center, who is sidelined with a sprained right foot. Brooklyn fell 1 1/2 games behind the New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic division.

Oklahoma City has a 5 1/2 game lead atop the Western Conference’s Northwest division.

The Washington Wizards won their second game of the season, 105-101 against the defending champion Miami Heat (12-4), who got a triple-double from LeBron James -- 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. Jordan Crawford had 22 points off the bench for the Wizards (2-13).

The Knicks, who play tonight at Charlotte, travel to Miami tomorrow to face a Heat team that is undefeated in eight home games so far this season.
