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

Russell Westbrook had 24 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for Oklahoma City, which bounced back from a 154-147 loss in double-overtime loss to the Spurs on Thursday.

Schroder, a reserve point guard, went 0 for 4 from the field in the first half before going 8 for 13 after the break.

Oklahoma City's reserves scored 48 points to help snap a three-game losing streak. The Thunder had seven players score in double figures.

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

The Spurs led 60-51 at halftime behind 12 points from DeRozan and 11 from Marco Belinelli.

The Thunder fought back in the third quarter. Paul George hit a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 64-63 lead. Schroder's layup at the third-quarter buzzer put the Thunder up 86-80. Oklahoma City outscored the Spurs 35-20 in the period.

Schroder's layup gave the Thunder a 96-87 lead and caused San Antonio to call a timeout, but the onslaught continued. Schroder stole the ball, then bounced a pass between his legs and behind him to a trailing Westbrook, whose layup put the Thunder ahead 112-100 with about 5 minutes to play.
