PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant fired in 33 points on 12-of-21 shooting Sunday and the Thunder held off Portland 87-83.

Russell Westbrook added 18 points, nine assists and eight rebounds for the Thunder, who led most of the game but had to fend off a late Portland charge to improve to an NBA-best 29-8.

The Trail Blazers had two chances to take a late lead, but Nicolas Batum missed a layup with 9 seconds left and LaMarcus Aldridge misfired on a 19-foot jump with 1.2 seconds remaining.

Aldridge finished with a season-high 33 points with 11 rebounds and Batum contributed 21 and seven for the Blazers, who lost a second straight following a four-game winning streak.
