Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant continued his remarkable run of recent form with 36 points in last night's 111-105 victory over the San Antonio Spurs last night, with the reigning Western Conference champions unable to stop this year's MVP in-waiting.

Durant was actually outscored by Spurs talisman Tony Parker, who dropped 37 in a losing effort, but still managed to make it a ninth-straight game with scoring stats beyond the 30-point barrier.

The 25-year-old is now within just one game of tieing for second in terms of record consecutive 30-point hauls, where Kobe Bryant and LeBron James both sit with 10 strong showings on the spin.

Wilt Chamberlain may be well out ahead but on this evidence Thunders fans will care little, with Durant's season scoring average of 38.1 helping to push Oklahoma out ahead of the Spurs at the top of the Western Conference.

Oklahoma's clutch performer was joined in a strong effort by Reggie Jackson, who stepped up to shoot 27 points and team up with Durant for a combined 5-for-7 from three-point range.
