Kevin Durant Scores 41 As Thunder Rally To Win Game 4 vs Spurs

Don't count out the Oklahoma City Thunder just yet.

After keeping Game 4 close through three quarters, the West's oft-ignored contender ran away with it down the stretch to defeat the San Antonio Spurs 111-97 on their home floor, evening the series at 2-2. Kevin Durant was the high-man for the Thunder, pouring in 41 points (a playoff career-high) to lead his team's late rally on Mother's Day. 

Steven Adams was the surprise secondary scorer for OKC on the night, riding a strong first-half to a 16-point, 11-rebound double-double. Russell Westbrook struggled with his shot, making just five shots in 18 attempts, but finished with 14 points, 15 assists, seven rebounds and three steals -- including a pair of crucial takeaways in crunch time. 

The Spurs, who had three players (Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Tony Parker) finish with at least 20 points, got off to a hot start but fell apart in the final minutes in the game. Gregg Popovich's squad was outgunned 34-16 in the fourth quarter after outscoring the Thunder 27-17 in the first.

Game 5 will be back at the AT&T Tuesday, May 10 in San Antonio. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
