Oklahoma City takes the best record in the league and a 12-game winning streak into Thursday road contest against Minnesota. Oklahoma City has won 20 of 22 and hasn't lost since Nov. 23. Kevin Durant scored a season-high 41 points in Wednesday's 100-92 victory over Atlanta. He scored 18 points in the fourth quarter, when the Thunder held off a late rally by the Hawks, and had 13 rebounds. Russell Westbrook scored 27 points, including 21 in the first half, and 11 assists against the Hawks. Thunder's 12-game winning streak is the franchise's longest since it moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City in 2008. The Seattle SuperSonics had a 14-game winning streak in 1996. Minnesota doesn't have the speed and quickness to keep up with the much faster Thunder. They'll hang in the game in the first held and the Thunder will pull away in the second half.
