    Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant goes up for a dunk during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Monday, Dec. 21, 2015, in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES >> Kevin Durant hit a go-ahead jumper with 5.8 seconds left before blocking a potential game-winning 18-footer by Chris Paul as time expired, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Los Angeles Clippers 100-99 on Monday night.

Russell Westbrook scored 33 points and Serge Ibaka added 17 for Oklahoma City. Coming off a 104-100 loss at Cleveland that snapped their six-game winning streak, the Thunder won for the 11th time in 14 games.

Paul had 32 points and 10 assists in another classic duel with Westbrook, who won his first NBA scoring title last season. Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick each scored 15 for the Clippers, whose third straight loss equaled their longest skid of the season.
