Notts make it two from two
Nottinghamshire were held up by rain and defiance from Durham's last pair before making it two wins from two in the County Championship.
Needing to take one wicket on the final day at the Emirates Durham ICG, they were driven back to the pavilion by rain after just two overs.
And, following a 30-minute break, number 11 batsman Mitch Claydon proceeded to his maiden half-century to keep Durham's slim hopes of victory alive.
The Australian's previous best for Durham was 40 out of an all-out total of 114 against Lancashire at Old Trafford in 2008.
Claydon was sent in below Graham Onions, who was dropped in the slips by Nottinghamshire after they claimed the extra half hour on the third evening.
Resuming on 18, with the total on 203 for nine, Claydon took 10 off Andy Carter's opening over.
The visitors persisted with the 6ft 6in seamer, even though Claydon kept clattering him to the boundary.
Andre Adams was also unable to grab the scalp he wanted to complete a five-wicket haul and eventually made way for the left-arm spin of Samit Patel.
There were eight fours in Claydon's 53-ball half-century, but after 50 runs had been added he was caught at long-on by Luke Fletcher off Patel for 55.
Durham were all out for 253 with Onions unbeaten on 28 in a last-wicket stand of 73, but Nottinghamshire claimed victory by 114 runs
