(NBA) New Orleans prevent Oklahoma from locking second seed
(04-15 11:59)

Tyreke Evans scored a career-high 41 points to go with nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals, as the New Orleans Pelicans snapped an eight-game skid by shocking the playoff-bound Thunder 101-89.
New Orleans beat the Thunder for the first time in 11 meetings, dating to Jan. 24, 2011.
Evans made 14 of 26 shots while scoring mostly on quick, powerful bursts to the hoop. He also scored 12 points at the foul line and made a 3 that put the Pelicans ahead 90-82 with 4:21 left.
Kevin Durant scored 25 for the Thunder, who have lost two straight and won't lock up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs without at least one more win or a Los Angeles Clippers loss.
