Thunder win 10th straight, 113-103 over Sacramento

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Kevin Durant scored 31 points, Serge Ibaka added 18 points and 11 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Sacramento Kings 113-103 on Friday night for their 10th straight win.

It's the franchise's longest winning streak since 1996, when it won 11 in a row as the Seattle SuperSonics.

The Kings didn't go away easily, closing to 103-98 after trailing by as many as 24 in the fourth quarter. Isaiah Thomas scored all 26 of his points in the final 13 1/2 minutes. He had four 3-pointers, a layup and a jumper during a 23-4 comeback attempt by Sacramento.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks had already emptied his bench, but ended up calling timeout to put starters back in and hold off the Kings.

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 15 Inactives: Scherff, Dunbar ruled out

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 15 Inactives: Scherff, Dunbar ruled out

When the Redskins host the Eagles on Sunday, both teams will be without multiple starters at the wide receiver position.

Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn will miss his second straight contest with a concussion. The Redskins will roll out a trio of rookie wide receivers -- Terry McLaurin, Kelvin Harmon, and Steven Sims -- as the team placed veteran Paul Richardson on injured reserve this week.

Philadelphia will be without their top three wide receivers -- Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor -- in Week 15. Agholor will be inactive. Jeffery was placed on IR earlier this week, and Jackson has been on IR since early November. Jackson only appeared in three contests this season in his second stint in Philadelphia, but he torched the Redskins for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.

Ryan Kerrigan, who's been Washington's Ironman since entering the NFL in 2011, will miss the remainder of the season with a calf injury he suffered last week in Green Bay. The team placed him on injured reserve earlier this week, too.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar has been Washington's best defender this season, but was forced to leave last week's contest early with a hamstring injury. He didn't practice all week and is inactive against Philadelphia.

Redskins guard Brandon Scherff will also miss Sunday's contest. He was questionable with an elbow and shoulder injury and only practiced on a limited basis this week.

Philadelphia will also be without their All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson, who is out with an ankle injury.

Here are the full inactives.

Potential coaching candidate Urban Meyer spotted at Redskins-Eagles game

Potential coaching candidate Urban Meyer spotted at Redskins-Eagles game

Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is in attendance at the Redskins game on Sunday, according to NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay. Which leads to one question for fans: Is he there to catch a game and cheer on his former QB or a glimpse at his future?

Meyer's name has surfaced in rumors as a potential candidate for the open job in Washington in recent weeks and was on the top of fans' lists before that. He coached Haskins at Ohio State, where he won a title and went 83-9 in his seven years in Columbus. 

He retired from the Buckeyes at the end of the 2018 season, citing health reasons. Before his time in Columbus, Meyer spent six years at the helm in Florida, where he went 65-15. He stepped down from that program in 2009, also citing health reasons at the time.
