The Spurs kept it close late, but even with Tony Parker's 37 points, it was Reggie Jackson tying his season-high 27 points that made the difference in the Thunder's win.

It was a two-point game going into halftime, 55-53, with Durant and Tony Parker both scoring 17 points. Even with the 17, Durant looked to be irked by Manu Ginobli's defense in the first half, which played a part in him coughing up seven turnovers in the first two quarters.

Both teams traded blows in the third and fourth quarters, but with much of the Spurs' defensive focus on Durant (36 pts, 7 rebs) down the stretch, it was Jackson's penetration that gave the Thunder the edge late, and the Spurs missed another opportunity to beat an "elite" team.

Along with the loss, the Spurs recieved some bad news with Kawhi Leonard leaving the first half due to a non-displaced fracture of his right fourth metacarpal. No timetable has been set for his return.
