Oklahoma City Thunder snap 10-game winning streak with loss to Wizards

The Oklahoma City Thunder were riding an impressive 10-game winning streak, with wins over the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat. However, that came to a halt on Feb. 1 when Oklahoma City traveled to Washington and lost to the Washington Wizards, 96-81.

Kevin Durant, whose 12-game streak of scoring 30 points or more a game ended in the blowout win over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night, had his second consecutive sub-30 point game in a row as Washington held the Thunder star to only 26 points on 38-percent shooting.

Meanwhile, John Wall scored 15 points in the second half, after only scoring two in the first, and also dished out 15 assists with six steals to help the Wizards beat the Thunder. It has seemed lately that Washington, no matter how bad they are playing, seem to have Oklahoma City's number. It just seems Kevin Durant can't put away his hometown team.

Washington is actually playing better this season than they have in recent years, sitting now at .500 with a 23-23 record. They rank fifth in the Eastern Conference and John Wall is playing in his first All-Star game this season.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City recovered after stumbling badly after Russell Westbrook underwent knee surgery. The team roared back to life, and even after the loss tonight, sit three games ahead of San Antonio in the Western Conference. They expect to have Westbrook back by the All-Star break.

The Oklahoma City Thunder next plays the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, back in the Chesapeake Arena with a tip off at 8 p.m. EST.
