Race on for division title as OKC beats Trail Blazers

(Continued)

Oklahoma City —

Oklahoma City has won six straight games against Portland, the longest streak by the Thunder franchise over the Trail Blazers since the Seattle SuperSonics won six straight from Feb. 9, 1994, to Jan. 15, 1995. It’s the third straight season the Thunder have taken the season series from Portland, the first time that’s happened since a run from the 1995-96 to 1997-98 seasons.

Portland led by five points in the third quarter, but consecutive pull-up jumpers by Thabo Sefolosha and Westbrook put the Thunder back ahead 60-59 at the 5:43 mark.

“It was just good to see all of those guys,” Maynor said.
