Serge Ibaka scored 14 points for the second-seeded Thunder, who took a 3-1 series lead and moved to the brink of their second straight trip to the Western Conference finals.
Oklahoma City improved to 7-1 in the postseason with a tenacious rally on the second night of back-to-back games against the Lakers and Kobe Bryant, who scored 38 points in Los Angeles' fifth loss in seven games overall.
The Thunder finished Game 4 on a 22-8 run, punctuated by Durant's 3-pointer and two late free throws from James Harden, who had 12 points.
