CLEVELAND — Kevin Durant scored 35 points, finding his shooting touch after a rough start, and Serge Ibaka had 16 as the Oklahoma City Thunder held off a furious Cleveland comeback for a 102-95 win over the injury-riddled Cavaliers on Thursday night.


Durant missed five of his first six shots, but the NBA’s top scorer finally got it going. He has scored 25 or more in 33 straight games — the league’s second-longest streak since Michael Jordan did it 40 consecutive times (1986-87).


With their 50th win, the Thunder, who let a 24-point lead dwindle to five in the fourth, moved within 1½ games of San Antonio for the best record in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City played without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook (knee).


Dion Waiters scored 30 for the Cavs.
