Kevin Durant scored 11 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Russell Westbrook had 19 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder held off the Orlando Magic 97-89 on Friday night.

The Magic briefly took a one-point lead in the final period, but the Thunder hit eight of their final 10 free throws to help seal the victory.

The win ends a string of consecutive losses for the Thunder, who played the first of four straight games against teams with losing records. They entered the night trailing West-leading San Antonio by 2½ games.

Maurice Harkless led the Magic with 25 points, followed by Jameer Nelson with 16.
