PHOENIX -- For the 41st game in a row, Kevin Durant scored at least 25 points. Gareth Bale Jersey . Not even Michael Jordan ever did that. Even so, Durant would probably trade his 38 points for a win. P.J. Tucker, who had to guard Durant most of Sunday night, scored 11 of his career-high 22 points in the fourth quarter and Phoenix beat the Thunder 122-115, giving the Suns a critical victory in their drive to make the playoffs and dealing a blow to Oklahoma Citys tenuous hold on the No. 2 spot in the West. Goran Dragic scored 26 points, Gerald Green 24 and Eric Bledsoe 18 for the Suns, who shot a season-best 58.4 per cent. With Memphis loss to San Antonio, the Suns are a game ahead of the Grizzlies for the No. 8 spot in the West and a half-game behind No. 7 Dallas. Durants streak surpassed Jordans 40 in a row of 25 or more and is the longest since Oscar Robertson did it for 46 straight games in 1963-64. Wilt Chamberlain did it in all 80 regular-season games in the 1961-62 season. And Durant is totally unimpressed his streak. "I dont really care about it," he said. "I cant wait until its over." Russell Westbrook scored 33 for the Thunder, who lead the Los Angeles Clippers by a game for the Wests No. 2 playoff spot. Oklahoma City took its final lead, 112-111, on Durants two free throws with 2:39 to play. Phoenix scored the next 10, the first four by Markieff Morris and the last four on free throws by Bledsoe, to lead 121-112 with 20.7 seconds to play. Durant sank a 3-pointer with 12.9 seconds to go, the only Thunder field goal in the final 3:49. "Its all or nothing right now," Green said. "We dont have a month left to try and make up. We only got a few more games, so its win or go home for us." Tucker was a career-best 4 of 5 from behind the arc. After struggling at the line all night, Phoenix made its last eight free throws. "Everybody is trying to win at this point," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "It was a good test for us and one that these guys passed." Phoenix won the season series against Oklahoma City 2-1. "We feel like very game we play we can win, throughout the league," Tucker said. "We have confidence that we can play with anybody in the league." Phoenix plays its next three on the road -- at New Orleans, San Antonio and Dallas. "Its a big win for us," Dragic said. "Were a step closer, but were still a long way from our goal." Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Phoenixs great shooting was not solely the result of poor defence. "Theyre a very good offensive team," he said. "They give you trouble because theyre small, they attack, they get to the free throw line, they can make 3s, and theyre desperate right now. Theyre fighting for their playoff lives." Still, he said, the Thunder "didnt do a good enough job closing out their shooters." "When you have good shooters you cant have mistakes," Brooks said, "and we had too many mistakes on the defensive end." The Suns led by as many as 14 points in the third quarter, the last time at 85-71 on Greens 14-footer with 6:10 left, and were up 92-83 after consecutive layups by Dragic and Bledsoe with 4:04 left. But the Thunder outscored the Suns 8-2 the rest of the quarter, Durants driving dunk with 13 seconds left cutting Phoenixs lead to 94-91 after three. Durant and Nick Collison scored to start the fourth quarter and Oklahoma City led for the first time since the first quarter, 95-94, with 11:06 to play. The lead bounced back and forth after that. Tuckers reverse layup put Phoenix up 111-110 with 1:52 to go. Marcus Morris sank a pair of jumpers in a 12-4 run that put Phoenix up 38-29 early in the second quarter. Oklahoma City cut it to 44-41 on Reggie Jacksons driving layup, but Tucker sank a 3, Dragic converted a three-point play then scored on another drive and the Suns were back up 52-43 with 3:53 to go and led 62-53 at the break. NOTES: The Suns are 20-0 when shooting at least 50 per cent from the field. ... Dragic scored all 19 of his first-half points in the second quarter, Green scored 17 in the second half. ... Phoenix plays four of its final five games on the road. Its home game is against Memphis on April 14. Custom Wales Jerseys . The Tinkoff-Saxo rider was still dealing with the right shin he broke in a crash which ended his Tour de France on Stage 10. He hoped to defy his doctors and race in the home Grand Tour he won in 2008 and 2012, but he says there have been complications in his recovery. Wales Jerseys . -- Victor Bernardez tied the game with his second goal in the 95th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes drew 3-3 with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night. http://www.soccerwalesshop.com/joe-allen-wales-UEFA-EURO-jersey/ . The Bruins forward has been fined $5,000 by the National Hockey League for spearing Red Wings defenceman Danny DeKeyser in the groin.CALGARY -- With players moving in and out of the lineup, the bye week was especially beneficial for the Calgary Stampeders. The Stampeders have the luxury of more time to prepare for next Sundays Western Division final than the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who are coming off their division semifinal win Sunday over the B.C. Lions. Calgary won the West with the CFLs best record of 14-4. So instead of preparing to win a game last week, the Stampeders got an early start on adjusting to life without injured receiver Marquay McDaniel and defensive tackles Demonte Bolden and Micah Johnson. Receivers Joe West and Brad Sinopoli participated in their fourth practices Tuesday after returning from a shoulder injury and a concussion, respectively. The Stampeders continued auditioning for replacements on the defensive line with Junior Turner, Etienne Legare, Freddie Bishop and six-foot-six behemoth Earl Okine getting reps Tuesday. "Sometimes you dont know how the bye week will help you, but it helped us in that sense," Stampeder quarterback Kevin Glenn said. "Getting guys acclimated with the positions they may play in this game was big. Having those practices and letting those guys work in those positions, it helped having that bye. If we would have had to possibly go right into playing a game, it might have been a little bit tougher." McDaniel posted the first 1,000-yard season of his career, only to have it end with a high ankle sprain in the regular-season finale versus the B.C. Lions. Both Johnson and Bolden suffered damaged knee ligaments in that game and will not play in the West final. Veteran slotback Nik Lewis has been sidelined since August with a broken leg. With McDaniel following him onto the injured list, getting West and Sinopoli up to speed again is crucial. Import wide receiver Jeff Fuller signed with the Stampeders in September and played just the final three games of the regular season. "Its good that we had this extra time . . . to get a few more days on the practice field executing the offence," head coach John Hufnagel said. West had three touchdown catches in his first four games this seasonn before his shoulder injury in Week 4. Blank Jersey. He returned to the lineup in September only to re-injure it in his second game back. Sinopoli, a Canadian college quarterback converted into a receiver, missed the final two games of the season with a concussion. A one-handed catch on a 42-yard gain in his debut at receiver in July continues to be shown on highlight reels. The Peterborough, Ont., native says the extra work in practice without the pounding of a game has helped his transition back onto the field. "It helps and it helps just with the legs and feeling fresh," Sinopoli said. "I feel like the season just started now. I dont feel like Ive been playing for 20 weeks or whatever its been. Its huge." The bye week has to be managed properly for it to be an advantage and not a disadvantage, said running back Jon Cornish. "People talk about the bye week being a week off, but as long as you dont view it as that, its a beneficial thing," the CFLs leading rusher explained. "The bye week is supposed to be a week of practice, a hard week of practice, working out and still doing all the things you should be doing to get ready for a game, and then just not playing the game. We had that mindset this year. "A few years back, we sort of had this mindset that the bye week was some sort of week off and we shouldnt be practising hard. You get your rest from not playing in the football game." McMahon Stadium temperatures for Calgary over the next few days are forecasted to stay above zero. Hufnagel hopes that is true because frigid temperatures makes for difficult practices. "Its hard to keep these men out there for an hour and 45 minutes and expect them to have full attention when its minus-20 degrees," Hufnagel said. Sundays forecast is for flurries and a high of minus-11. But the coach says hes more concerned about high winds than a low temperature on game day. "As far as how wind effects the game, it almost cuts the game in half," he said. "When you have the wind, you have to make hay and when you dont have the wind, hopefully you can hold on."
