Thunder triumph in OT


Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks might have some choices to make when scripting last-second shots.

Brooks drew up a play for Kevin Durant on Friday night, but it was Russell Westbrook that came through in the end.

Westbrook’s corner 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left in overtime gave Oklahoma City a wild 113-112 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Brooks drew up the play to get Durant the ball, but the NBA scoring leader’s floater missed with 12 seconds left.

Officials called the ball out on Golden State and used replay to confirm the call.

After the review, Serge Ibaka’s 4.9-meter jump shot missed the mark and the ball looked headed out of bounds before Thabo Sefolosha’s diving save gave the Thunder one final try.

Sefolosha found Westbrook, who took off one way, turned the other and drilled the 3-pointer over Harrison Barnes to give the Thunder the win.

“When he tells people about out this one, he doesn’t have to exaggerate it because there’s no bigger fish story than what he did tonight,” Brooks said of Westbrook’s heroics.

Westbrook scored a season-high 34 points on 10-of-25 shooting, Durant added 25 and Oklahoma City won its sixth consecutive game overall.

Ibaka continued his strong November with his third consecutive double-double, with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Curry had 32 points, hitting four 3-pointers, to lead the Warriors.
