OKLAHOMA CITY — Matt Bonner scored 21 points and just missed the Spurs franchise record by hitting all seven of his 3-point shots, helping San Antonio stretch its winning streak to seven games with a 117-104 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.

Bonner swished home three of his 3s during a 21-8 run to open the fourth quarter, and the NBA's best 3-point shooting team went 6-for-8 from behind the arc to pull away in the final period.

Bonner led the way, falling one shy of Steve Smith's record for 3-point accuracy. He went 8-for-8 from 3-point range against Portland on Nov. 3, 2001.

Tony Parker scored 24 points, Manu Ginobili added 21 and Richard Jefferson had 18 for the Spurs.

Kevin Durant had a season-low 23 points and Russell Westbrook scored 19 for the Thunder.
