Steven Adams finishes fast break with slam as Thunder get revenge over San Antonio

Dennis Schroder scored all of his 19 points in the second half to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 122-112 today.

Russell Westbrook had 24 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for Oklahoma City, which bounced back from a 154-147 loss in double-overtime loss to the Spurs on Friday.

Schroder, a reserve point guard, went zero for four from the field in the first half before going eight for 13 after the break.

Oklahoma City's reserves scored 48 points to help snap a three-game losing streak. The Thunder had seven players score in double figures.

DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 18 points. LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored a career-high 56 points against the Thunder on Friday, finished this one with 17.

The Spurs led 60-51 at halftime behind 12 points from DeRozan and 11 from Marco Belinelli.

The Thunder fought back in the third quarter.

Paul George hit a three-pointer to give the Thunder a 64-63 lead. Schroder's layup at the third-quarter buzzer put the Thunder up 86-80. Oklahoma City outscored the Spurs 35-20 in the period.

Schroder's layup gave the Thunder a 96-87 lead and caused San Antonio to call a timeout, but the onslaught continued.

Schroder stole the ball, then bounced a pass between his legs and behind him to a trailing Westbrook, whose layup put the Thunder ahead 112-100 with about five minutes to play.
