OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — After blowing a five-point lead against Portland a week ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder turned up the focus on defense late in games.

It worked against New Orleans on Sunday, and the Thunder did it again Tuesday night, riding 24 points from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to a 102-94 victory over the Orlando Magic.

“I thought we executed very well and then we defended really, really well coming down the stretch,” Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said. “I’ve seen significant growth and improvement from the guys.”
