NBA roundup: Kevin Durant propels Thunder past Suns

Kevin Durant scored 27 of his 41 points in the second half and the Oklahoma City Thunder became the NBA’s first 30-game winner of the season with a 102-90 victory over the Suns on Monday night in Phoenix.

Russell Westbrook added 36 for the Thunder, but it was Durant who took over in his fourth 40-point game of the season, scoring 19 in the fourth quarter and falling 1 shy of the season-high 42 he scored two games earlier against the Los Angeles Lakers.
