Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant scored some key late points to steer the Thunder to a 92-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in Wednesday's clash of NBA divisional leaders.

Coming off his MVP performance in the All-Star game, Durant struggled a bit. The two-time scoring champion shot 7 of 18. But he made key baskets and free throws and added a clutch steal late in the game as the Thunder overcame a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit.

He finished with 23 points while Russell Westbrook had 22 points and 13 rebounds as the NBA leaders won their sixth straight game.

Andre Iguodala and Jrue Holiday each had 18 points for the 76ers.
