#1 matches after allowing only six over its first five. von miaowang123 22.03.2019 02:41

PHILADELPHIA -- Kevin Durant went from a game off to a game to remember. Durant had 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in his return from a shoulder injury to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to their seventh straight win, a 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. Durant was scratched from the Thunders win over Boston on Friday with a sprained right shoulder. Against the Sixers, Durant was one of the first Thunder to hit the court for pregame warm-ups. He dunked several times, even hanging on the rim for several seconds after one, and was fit to play. "I hate sitting out," Durant said, "but it was best for me and my shoulder. I guess that day off was needed." Durant and the Thunder let the Sixers hang around before putting the finishing touches on their ninth straight win over Philadelphia. The Sixers trimmed Oklahoma Citys lead to four in the third quarter before Durant keyed a 14-5 run to open up a comfortable lead. Durant, the NBAs leading scorer, has scored at least 30 points in his last 10 games. Serge Ibaka had 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Thunder. James Anderson led the Sixers with 19 points. Thaddeus Young had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight steals. Oklahoma City has managed to stay atop the West with Russell Westbrook out since Christmas recovering from right knee surgery. They entered the night with the best record in the Western Conference, one-half game ahead of the San Antonio Spurs. Without Durant, the Thunder still managed to beat Boston 101-83 on Friday night. With him, they had enough to pull away from a plucky Sixers team that already has wins over Miami, Chicago and Portland this season. "We will do our best with some basic things to guard him," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before the game. Durant toyed with the basic defence and hardly missed, throwing down dunks and knocking down easy buckets in the paint, and looked every bit an All-Star. Durant, averaging 38.2 points over his last 12 games, made 12 of 17 shots for his fifth career triple-double. Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks watched from the baseline when Durant warmed up. Durant answered a series of questions from the training staff after every few shots and was soon listed in the starting lineup. The Sixers had one of their largest crowds of the season and the stands were dotted with fans in Durant jerseys who surely would have been crushed had he not played. The Sixers must have wished he sat this one out. "Everybodys scared because hes Kevin Durant and he scores in such a variety of ways," Brown said. "He is the NBAs hottest player. Hes always been an incredibly difficult guard. You blink and hes got a triple-double." Durant sank his only 3 of the game from the top of the arc over Michael Carter-Williams for a 43-34 lead. Carter-Williams had one of the few rough nights of his stellar rookie season. Ibaka stuffed him twice early in the game, setting an early tone for Oklahoma Citys toughness. "Carter-Williams, he really doesnt know what Serge does," Durant said. He does know. Spencer Hawes and the Sixers flirted with an upset after a big rally in the third. Hawes hit a 3, had a big dunk over Thabo Sefolosha and a floating jumper in succession to help trim the gap to 69-65. Durants driving dunk put the Thunder back on track and en route to their fourth win in five nights. "We dont make an excuse," Brooks said, "but it is tough. But these guys, they step up every night."

United to a 4-1 victory over short-handed FC Dallas on Saturday night. Bobby Boswell and Sean Franklin also scored for the Washington club, which extended its unbeaten run to five matches and scored all four of its goals after the first-half ejection of Dallas defender Zach Loyd. Dallas Michel also was sent off late by referee Fotis Bazakos. D.C. forward and U.S. World Cup hopeful Eddie Johnson assisted on Espindolas first goal just before halftime, but left in the 51st minute with an apparent leg injury. Mauro Diaz put the visitors ahead early to extend Dallas streak of scoring at least one goal to seven matches. United improved to 3-2-2, and Dallas dropped to 5-2-1.

United then sealed things over a 10-minute span midway through the second half. Boswell put United ahead in the 60th minute when he hammered in a rebound after Chris Seitz saved Conor Doyles initial close-range shot. It was 3-1 three minutes later when Espindola split a pair of Dallas defenders on the left and chipped a cross toward Franklin, who side-footed his finish inside the right post. In the 69th, Espindola scored his second -- and his fourth of the season -- when he took Chris Rolfes feed on a counter attack and drove another low finish beyond Seitz. After snapping a 15-match streak without a victory that stretched back to August of 2013, United is now on its longest unbeaten run since it went seven unbeaten to close the 2012 regular season.
