OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 41 points, including the game-winning jumper with 1.5 seconds left, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from a 14-point halftime deficit to beat the Atlanta Hawks 111-109 Monday night for their eighth straight victory.

Durant scored 13 in the fourth quarter, including a 16-foot, step-back jumper with 25.5 seconds remaining that put Oklahoma City ahead for the first time since the opening 2 minutes. Paul Millsap tied it for Atlanta before Durant knocked down the decisive 12-footer while being guarded by DeMarre Carroll.

Shelvin Mack tried to throw a pass to Millsap on the final play, but Thabo Sefolosha knocked it away. Millsap led the Hawks with 23 points.

Reggie Jackson had 18 points for Oklahoma City (36-10), which takes the Western Conference's best record into a showdown Wednesday at Miami, the two-time defending NBA champion.
