OAKLAND, Calif., April 17 (UPI) -- Kevin Durant virtually wrapped up Rookie of the Year honors Wednesday by scoring a career-high 42 points in Seattle's 126-121 victory over Golden State.
Durant also claimed 13 rebounds, helping Seattle win its 20th game while ending the season on a two-game winning streak.
Jeff Green, another Seattle rookie, scored 27 points. The SuperSonics had lost 11 consecutive road games in what was likely their final season in Seattle. The team is expected to move to Oklahoma City before the 2008-09 campaign.
Golden State, which finished 14 games above .500 and still missed the playoffs, was led by 24 points from Monta Ellis.
