LOS ANGELES -- For three quarters, the Los Angeles Lakers tempted the sellout crowd at Staples Center into believing they would pull off one of the most improbable upsets of the NBA season. Then Kevin Durant took over and the Lakers got sloppy with the ball, turning it into just another loss in a season full of them for coach Mike DAntonis undermanned squad. Durant scored 19 of his 43 points in the fourth quarter and the Oklahoma City Thunder sent the Lakers to a record-setting seventh straight home loss with a 107-103 victory on Thursday night. "The easy thing to do is look at it like we didnt have the proper focus. But Im not going to go there -- because when you play against an NBA team thats prideful like the Lakers, theyre going to have a good game," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. The Thunder have a 1 1/2-game lead on Indiana for the NBAs best record. Their 43-12 mark equals the best start in the franchises 47-year history, set by the 1995-96 Seattle Supersonics. Oklahoma City is 20-7 without second-leading scorer Russell Westbrook, who hasnt played since getting a triple-double on Christmas Day at Madison Square Garden. Westbrook is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. "This whole group, they are resilient," Durant said. "We persevered through everything and just stayed together. We had faith no matter what. We are looking forward to having Russell back and make it seem less of a transition for him." Chris Kaman and Wesley Johnson scored 19 points apiece for Los Angeles, and Kendall Marshall added 14 points and 17 assists. The Lakers have lost 22 of their last 27 games and are tied with Sacramento for last place in the Western Conference. The Thunder, coming off a 98-95 win against Portland in which they held All-Stars LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard to a combined 1-for-17 from the field in the second half, trailed by as many as 15 points late in the third quarter while Durant missed his first eight attempts from 3-point range. But Durants first 3-pointer of the game cut the Lakers lead to 85-77 in the opening minute of the fourth, triggering a 15-2 run that enabled Oklahoma City to pull ahead 92-87 with 5:46 to play. "He just continued to play the game and do what he has done all season," teammate and former Laker Derek Fisher said. "He is one of the best I have seen in terms if really just playing through anything and everything." Los Angeles committed seven of its 23 turnovers during the first 4:03 of the final period, and Fisher tied it at 87-all on a 3-pointer. Durant then stole the ball from Johnson and hit a driving layup that gave the Thunder their first lead, 89-87. The five-time All-Star capped the rally with a 3-pointer 32 seconds later. The Lakers came out of the gate like a team that desperately wanted to avoid surpassing the franchise record for consecutive home losses they shared with the 1992-93 squad. They led 54-45 at halftime. "I thought the effort was terrific," DAntoni said. "They battled the whole game. We ran into a little rough spot there in the start of the fourth. They got into us and we turned it over way too many times." Steve Blake made a three-point play after getting fouled by Jeremy Lamb on an off-balance 20-footer from the left elbow. That put the Lakers back in front 95-94 with 3:34 left, but Serge Ibakas two free throws put the Thunder ahead to stay with 2:38 remaining and they closed with an 11-7 run as Fisher and Durant each made two free throws in the final 17 seconds. Oklahoma City has won eight of its last 12 meetings with the Lakers. DAntoni was down to eight healthy players, with point guard Steve Nash sitting out because of a recurrence of root irritation in his back and hamstring. Los Angeles is still missing five of its top six scorers -- Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Jordan Farmar, Nick Young, Jodie Meeks and Xavier Henry. "Its been a crazy year, and there will still be some turbulence ahead," DAntoni said. "But I think during these next 29 games we will get honed in and try to get better. The thing I hope is that with all the effort, they get rewarded for it." NOTES: The Thunder havent allowed 20 or more points to an opposing player since eight games ago at Miami on Jan. 29, when they overcame 34 points by LeBron James in a 112-95 win. ...

WINNIPEG -- Loui Eriksson didnt look out of place on a line with new Boston Bruins teammates Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. And he looked even better in overtime when he sent a high shot past goalie Ondrej Pavelec to give the Bruins a 3-2 pre-season victory against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday. "It was definitely nice to be able to score one, and it was one in overtime, too, so its nice," said Eriksson, who was acquired from Dallas in July in a seven-player deal. Ryan Spooner and Eriksson went down the ice together and Spooner sent a pass across to Eriksson, who moved the puck with his skate onto his stick to set up his first goal of the pre-season 1:46 in OT. Spooner and Patrice Bergeron also scored for the Bruins. Devon Setoguchi and Mark Scheifele had Winnipegs two power-play goals. Niklas Svedberg stopped 26 shots for the Bruins, who improved their exhibition record to 5-1-0. Pavelec faced 33 shots for the Jets (1-3-3). The teams play a rematch Friday in Saskatoon. Eriksson predicted chemistry can develop with Bergeron and Marchand. "Sometimes it feels really good, sometimes a little bit worse, but thats why you have these games," Eriksson said. "We had some good chances today again, but we need to step it up a little bit more." The teams were tied 1-1 heading into the third period after a scoreless second at MTS Centre. Bergeron had the games first goal when he took a feed from Marchand and put a close, low shot past Pavelec at 3:54 of the first period for his first goal of the pre-season. The veteran centre spent the off-season recovering from not one, but four injuries after Boston lost last years Stanley Cup final in six games to Chicago. During the final, Bergeron played some games with a broken rib, torn rib cartilaage and a separated shoulder.dddddddddddd He later found out he also had a collapsed lung. Winnipeg had a good chance to tie the game shortly after Bergerons goal when highly touted defensive prospect Jacob Trouba blasted a shot from just inside the blue-line. However, Bruins centre Gregory Campbell splayed on the ice to block the shot. Campbell broke his right leg in Game 3 of Bostons sweep of Pittsburgh in last years Eastern Conference final. Jets coach Claude Noel saw some positive things in the loss, especially with a pair of the teams top prospects. That included blue-liner Trouba, whos battling for a spot on the roster. "For a 19-year-old player, he makes good decisions," Noel said of the teams 2012 first-round pick (ninth overall). "He plays hard, he plays a lot of minutes and makes a lot of good decisions." Scheifele had some trouble early in the game, but picked it up and contributed with his first goal of the pre-season. "The goal was a relief for Mark and was a big play at a key time for us," Noel said of the clubs seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft. Winnipeg went up 2-1 on Scheifeles power-play goal at 4:21 of the third period. Eric Tangradi dumped in a long shot that bounced off the end boards on the glove side of Svedberg. Scheifele picked up the puck, cut in front of Svedberg and flipped a backhand shot past the netminder. Boston only let the lead stand for two minutes after Matt Fraser stood in front of Pavelec and Spooners shot went into the net at 6:22. The Bruins had outshot the Jets 30-27 after regulation. Notes: Boston scratched veterans Jarome Iginla, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Zdeno Chara. Winnipeg sat its top line of Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler, who has a minor injury. ' ' '
