Wizards 96, Thunder 81

Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant's return to his hometown ended rudely as All-Star guard John Wall and the Washington Wizards snapped the Thunder's 10-game winning streak with a 96-81 victory.

Wall had 17 points, 15 assists and six steals for the Wizards, who pulled away from the Western Conference leading Thunder with a 27-11 second-half run.

Forward Trevor Ariza scored 18 points.

Durant, who was born in Washington and raised in the nearby Maryland suburbs, scored 26 points, but lacked consistency with his usually potent shot.

The NBA's leading scorer missed all six of his three-point attempts and finished 8-of-21 from the field.
