SEATTLE, Jan. 30 (UPI) --
Seattle ended the agony -- for one night at least -- snapping its 14-game losing streak with an 88-85 win over San Antonio thanks to Kevin Durant
's 26-point performance.
Durant's last points came on a jumper with 32.6 seconds left that put the SuperSonics ahead and Luke Ridnour's two free throws soon after sealed the deal.
Chris Wilcox added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Nick Collison came up with 14 points and 10 rebounds in the win.
Manu Ginoboli had a game-high 29 points while playing in place of Tony Parker, who is out with a bone spur. Tim Duncan had 27 points and 12 rebounds, as the Spurs lost their third straight.
San Antonio had led 48-26 at the half but Seattle battled back and trailed just 66-63 going into the fourth. The Sonics scored the first six points of the final period as the game continued to shift in their favor.
