The Oklahoma City Thunder have levelled the NBA's Western Conference Final series with the San Antonio Spurs, with the all-stars Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant leading the way in a 105-92 win.

Westbrook contributed a game-high 40 points and 10 assists while the league MVP Durant weighed in with 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting as the second-seeded Thunder tied the best-of-seven series at 2-2.

The New Zealander, Steven Adams, played 25 minutes and had four points, six rebounds and a block.

The Spurs' point guard Tony Parker led the way for San Antonio with 14 points but the veteran All-Star forward, Tim Duncan, was held to just nine points on three-of-eight shooting.

The series shifts back to San Antonio for game five on Friday with the eventual winners advancing to meet either the Heat or Indiana Pacers for the NBA title.
