Collison's Free-Thow Gives Thunder 87-86 Win Over Jazz

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 31 points to tie a franchise record for consecutive 30-point games and Nick Collison hit the two decisive free throws with 4.5 seconds left to lift the Oklahoma City Thunder to an 87-86 victory over the Utah Jazz on Thursday night.

Collison came away with the ball after Durant missed a jumper from the right wing, and was fouled by Paul Millsap in the process.

After hitting only one of his previous four foul shots, Collison made both to give the Thunder their first five-game winning streak in more than four years.

Durant surpassed 30 points for the sixth straight game, tying a franchise record set by Spencer Haywood in January 1972.
