NEW YORK (AP) Kevin Durant's 30-point streak ended at 12 games when he scored 26 in just 30 minutes, and the Oklahoma City Thunder won their 10th in a row with a 120-95 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.

Serge Ibaka made all 12 shots and added 25 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who were so good that Durant sat the entire fourth quarter, the only way to slow him down right now.

The NBA's leading scorer finished 10 of 12 from the field, though his scoring average during his sensational January dropped from 36.6 to 35.9.

Oklahoma City shot 63.6 percent, highest in the NBA this season, and outrebounded Brooklyn 41-17.

Shaun Livingston scored 16 points while drawing the impossible assignment of defending Durant.

MAGIC 113, BUCKS 102

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Arron Afflalo scored 21 points, Tobias Harris added 18 and the Magic ran past the Bucks.

The Magic snapped a three-game losing streak and extended their home winning streak over Milwaukee to 16 games.

Nik Vucevic had 12 points and six rebounds in his second game back from a concussion.

Caron Butler scored 20 points for Milwaukee, which lost its fifth straight game. The Bucks have lost 14 of their last 15 and eight straight on the road.

GRIZZLIES 94, TIMBERWOLVES 90

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Zach Randolph had 26 points and 12 rebounds and the Grizzlies overcame another strong effort by Kevin Love to beat the Timberwolves.

Courtney Lee added 15 points for the Grizzlies, who have won five straight games and 10 of their last 11. The Grizzlies have won six straight on the road.

Playing on a sore left ankle throughout the second half, Love led Minnesota with 28 points and 16 rebounds. Kevin Martin had 14 points for the Timberwolves, who lost for just the second time in seven games.

HAWKS 125, 76ERS 99

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Mike Scott and Elton Brand scored 18 points apiece to lead seven Hawks in double figures and Atlanta routed the 76ers.

DeMarre Carroll contributed 13 points, Paul Millsap, Jeff Teague and Lou Williams had 12 apiece, and Kyle Korver added 11 points for the Hawks.

Thaddeus Young scored 29 points, Michael Carter-Williams added 17 and Elliot Williams had 15 for the Sixers, who have dropped 11 of their last 13 home games, including five straight.

The Sixers, now 8-16 at home, haven't lost five in a row at home since December of 2006.
