Behind Kevin Durant's 31 points, the Oklahoma City Thunder dropped the Sacramento Kings on Friday for their 10th win in a row.

The Thunder didn't have a game on either Saturday or Sunday, but notable games in the NBA came from the much-criticized Los Angeles Lakers, who beat the Washington Wizards 102-96 on Friday night, and the Philadelphia 76ers 111-98 on Sunday.

Other big games in the league included Saturday's 115-93 win for the surprising Golden State Warriors out of the Western Conference against the Eastern Conference up-start Atlanta Hawks. The New York Knicks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-102 on Saturday despite Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving scoring 41 points, and the Chicago Bulls held off the Brooklyn Nets, 83-82, at home.

The San Antonio Spurs also handled the Boston Celtics, 103-88, on Saturday in Texas.

On Sunday, the Portland Trail Blazers won their third straight thanks to a 95-94 victory against the New Orleans Hornets that came by way of a three-pointer by rookie guard Damian Lillard at the buzzer.
