Kevin Durant had 33 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped Portland's nine-game winning streak at the Rose Garden with an 87-83 victory over the Trail Blazers on Sunday night.

Russell Westbrook added 18 points and nine assists for the Thunder, who played without starters Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha because of injuries.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 33 points and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who trailed by 11 points but pulled within one point on Nicolas Batum's 3-pointer with 21.9 seconds to go.

Kendrick Perkins missed the first of two free throws and after a timeout Aldridge missed a tough fade-away jumper from about 20 feet out with 1.7 seconds left. Westbrook made a pair of foul shots for the final margin.
