PHOENIX -- Kevin Durant scored 38 points, his 41st consecutive game of 25 or more, but it wasn't enough as the Phoenix Suns beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-115 Sunday night behind 26 points from Goran Dragic and 24 from Gerald Green.

Durant moved ahead of Michael Jordan with the third-longest such streak in NBA history and longest since Oscar Robertson did it for 46 in a row in the 1963-64 season.

P.J. Tucker scored a career-high 22 points, including a career-best four 3-pointers, for the Suns, who pulled a game ahead of Memphis for the No. 8 playoff spot in the West and took the season series from the Thunder 2-1. Eric Bledsoe added 18 points.

Russell Westbrook had 33 points and eight assists for Oklahoma City.
