Thunder 107, Spurs 93: Serge Ibaka collected 25 points and 17 rebounds as host Oklahoma City took control in the third quarter to win its 11th in a row for the first time in 16 years.

Russell Westbrook had 22 points and nine assists and Kevin Martin added 20 off the bench for the Thunder, who matched a similar run during November 1996 when the franchise was known as the Seattle SuperSonics.

Tony Parker and Nando de Colo had 14 points apiece for the Spurs, who have split their first two meetings with Oklahoma City after being bounced by the Thunder in last season's Western Conference finals.

After Parker drilled a pair of long-range jumpers to bring the Spurs within four at 60-56, Kevin Durant scored five points to highlight an 11-0 run in the third quarter.

Westbrook added six points in just over two minutes to give Oklahoma City a 78-62 lead. San Antonio cut the deficit to nine with 5 1/2 minutes to play, but the Thunder had more in the tank and coasted to victory.
