OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Dennis Schroder scored all his 19 points in the second half to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 122-112 on Saturday night.

Schroder, a reserve point guard, went out of the field 0 for 4 in the first half before he turned 8 before 13 after the break.

The reserves of Oklahoma City scored 48 points to help in making a three-game losing streak. The Thunder scored seven players in double digits.

DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 18 points. LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored a career-high 56 points against the Thunder on Thursday, ended with 17.

The thunder fought back in the third quarter. Paul George hit a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 64-63 lead. The lay-up of Schroder at the buzzer of the third quarter brought the Thunder up 86-80. Oklahoma City passed the Spurs 35-20 in the period.

Schroder's lay-up gave the Thunder a 96-87 lead and made San Antonio time-out, but the attack went on. Schroder stole the ball and then bounced a pass between his legs and behind him to a backlog of Westbrook, whose lay-up set the Thunder 112-100 to a gap of about 5 minutes to play.
