the first quarter, 95-94,

PHOENIX -- For the 41st game in a row, Kevin Durant scored at least 25 points. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . Not even Michael Jordan ever did that. Even so, Durant would probably trade his 38 points for a win. P.J. Tucker, who had to guard Durant most of Sunday night, scored 11 of his career-high 22 points in the fourth quarter and Phoenix beat the Thunder 122-115, giving the Suns a critical victory in their drive to make the playoffs and dealing a blow to Oklahoma Citys tenuous hold on the No. 2 spot in the West. Goran Dragic scored 26 points, Gerald Green 24 and Eric Bledsoe 18 for the Suns, who shot a season-best 58.4 per cent. With Memphis loss to San Antonio, the Suns are a game ahead of the Grizzlies for the No. 8 spot in the West and a half-game behind No. 7 Dallas. Durants streak surpassed Jordans 40 in a row of 25 or more and is the longest since Oscar Robertson did it for 46 straight games in 1963-64. Wilt Chamberlain did it in all 80 regular-season games in the 1961-62 season. And Durant is totally unimpressed his streak. "I dont really care about it," he said. "I cant wait until its over." Russell Westbrook scored 33 for the Thunder, who lead the Los Angeles Clippers by a game for the Wests No. 2 playoff spot. Oklahoma City took its final lead, 112-111, on Durants two free throws with 2:39 to play. Phoenix scored the next 10, the first four by Markieff Morris and the last four on free throws by Bledsoe, to lead 121-112 with 20.7 seconds to play. Durant sank a 3-pointer with 12.9 seconds to go, the only Thunder field goal in the final 3:49. "Its all or nothing right now," Green said. "We dont have a month left to try and make up. We only got a few more games, so its win or go home for us." Tucker was a career-best 4 of 5 from behind the arc. After struggling at the line all night, Phoenix made its last eight free throws. "Everybody is trying to win at this point," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "It was a good test for us and one that these guys passed." Phoenix won the season series against Oklahoma City 2-1. "We feel like very game we play we can win, throughout the league," Tucker said. "We have confidence that we can play with anybody in the league." Phoenix plays its next three on the road -- at New Orleans, San Antonio and Dallas. "Its a big win for us," Dragic said. "Were a step closer, but were still a long way from our goal." Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Phoenixs great shooting was not solely the result of poor defence. "Theyre a very good offensive team," he said. "They give you trouble because theyre small, they attack, they get to the free throw line, they can make 3s, and theyre desperate right now. Theyre fighting for their playoff lives." Still, he said, the Thunder "didnt do a good enough job closing out their shooters." "When you have good shooters you cant have mistakes," Brooks said, "and we had too many mistakes on the defensive end." The Suns led by as many as 14 points in the third quarter, the last time at 85-71 on Greens 14-footer with 6:10 left, and were up 92-83 after consecutive layups by Dragic and Bledsoe with 4:04 left. But the Thunder outscored the Suns 8-2 the rest of the quarter, Durants driving dunk with 13 seconds left cutting Phoenixs lead to 94-91 after three. Durant and Nick Collison scored to start the fourth quarter and Oklahoma City led for the first time since the first quarter, 95-94, with 11:06 to play. The lead bounced back and forth after that. Tuckers reverse layup put Phoenix up 111-110 with 1:52 to go. Marcus Morris sank a pair of jumpers in a 12-4 run that put Phoenix up 38-29 early in the second quarter. Oklahoma City cut it to 44-41 on Reggie Jacksons driving layup, but Tucker sank a 3, Dragic converted a three-point play then scored on another drive and the Suns were back up 52-43 with 3:53 to go and led 62-53 at the break. NOTES: The Suns are 20-0 when shooting at least 50 per cent from the field. ... Dragic scored all 19 of his first-half points in the second quarter, Green scored 17 in the second half. ... Phoenix plays four of its final five games on the road. Its home game is against Memphis on April 14. Cheap Jerseys . Betis hired Calderon on Monday, its third manager of the season, after Juan Carlos Garrido was fired. But the visitors continued to show the same holes in defence as Celta picked them apart following Ruben Castros opener for Betis in the 17th minute. Cheap Jerseys China . Rose keyed a seven-point burst to open the fourth period, assisting on three straight field goals. John Lucas III hit a three-pointer and Taj Gibson scored twice, opening up an 11-point lead for Chicago.RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. The team on Monday also recalled goalie Justin Peters from its AHL affiliate in Charlotte. Khudobin was hurt during the second period of a 5-3 loss to Phoenix on Sunday when he skated away from the net to play the puck. Coach Kirk&nbssp;Muller said after practice Monday that it was "unfortunate . Jerseys Cheap. .. to see him go off like that" but "hopefully, hes back sooner than later."
