Warriors vs. Thunder recap: Russell Westbrook's late 3-pointer propels Oklahoma City to 113-112 win

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma City's unbeaten home record looked in jeopardy until Russell Westbrook capped a crazy final possession with a go-ahead three.

Russell Westbrook hit a game-winning three-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Oklahoma City Thunder a 113-112 victory over the Golden State Warriors and preserve their perfect home record.

Westbrook's shot was made possible after the Warriors' failure to corral a defensive rebound in the Thunder's final possession. Kevin Durant missed a shot with 11 seconds remaining that went off the fingertips of Klay Thompson, giving the ball back to Oklahoma City. Serge Ibaka missed a 15-foot jumper a few seconds later, but Thabo Sefolosha saved the ball from going out of bounds and, in the process, flipped it to Westbrook, who drilled the shot in the face of Harrison Barnes.

The officiating crew reviewed the play to ensure Westbrook's toe didn't touch the line and ruled the shot as initially called.

Westbrook's big shot spoiled a solid late performance from Barnes, who scored 13 points during the fourth quarter and overtime. Barnes finished with 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting.

Westbrook rebounded from a poor outing against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday with 34 points, seven assists and five steals. Kevin Durant added 25 points and 13 boards for the Thunder.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
