OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 35 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder extended its winning streak to nine games with a 92-88 victory over the New Orleans Hornets 92-88 on Wednesday night.

The Thunder rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit and matched its longest streak since the franchise moved from Seattle.

At 18-4, the Thunder matched the second-best start in franchise history. Seattle started 20-2 in the 1993-94 season and the Thunder started 18-4 last season.

It was the Thunder's third win over the Hornets in the past four weeks and seventh straight in the series.

Brian Roberts scored 16 points to lead New Orleans, which lost its fifth straight game.

Greivis Vasquez missed a 3-point attempt in the closing seconds that would have given New Orleans the lead. Thabo Sefolosha corralled the rebound and made the clinching free throws for the Thunder.
