ATLANTA — Kevin Durant scored 30 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder won for the 11th time in 12 games, holding off the Atlanta Hawks 101-92 Tuesday night.

Shelvin Mack scored 17 points off the bench to lead an Atlanta comeback but finally cooled off at the end.

Coming off an impressive 118-94 home victory over Indiana, the Thunder had more trouble on the road against the Hawks. But the result was the same: another Oklahoma City victory, despite a tough night for Russell Westbrook. He was held to 14 points on 6-of-21 shooting, though he did sink an impressive reverse layup with 1:41 remaining to help finish off Atlanta.

Durant made 9 of 21 from the field and 11 of 15 free throws.

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 23 points.
