NBA scores: Russell Westbrook vaults Thunder over Warriors, Spurs resume winning ways

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Thunder looked destined for their first home loss until Russell Westbrook drained an last-second, off-balance shot to beat the Warriors.

Russell Westbrook's struggles didn't last long.

Oklahoma City's point guard rebounded from a 2-for-16 shooting performance against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday with 34 points, including a go-ahead three-pointer with 0.1 seconds left in overtime, on Friday in the Thunder's 113-112 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Westbrook's three was Oklahoma City's third shot of their final possession in overtime. Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka missed good looks, but the Warriors were unable to secure a rebound on either shot. Thabo Sefolosha chased Ibaka's miss out of bounds and saved the ball to Westbrook, who heaved a shot over Harrison Barnes that found the bottom of the net.

The Thunder remain unbeaten at home and improved to 11-3 overall.

Spurs 109, Magic 91

San Antonio bounced back from having their 11-game winning streak snapped by routing Orlando on the road. The Spurs appeared to be in for a fight early when the Magic trailed by only a point midway through the second quarter. However, San Antonio embarked on a 17-0 run before halftime to put the game away.

Tim Duncan had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Spurs, who got 30 combined points off the bench from Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobli. Arron Afflalo had 17 in the loss for the Magic.

Heat 90, Raptors 83

LeBron James scored 27 points, grabbed six rebounds and executed the second-half of this alley-oop to lead Miami to its ninth straight win.

James and the Heat had a 14-point halftime lead before falling asleep on offense in the second half. Fortunately for Miami, Toronto shot only 38 percent from the floor and also couldn't score in a fourth quarter that featured 25 combined points.

James had the final six points of the game for the Heat after the team allowed the Raptors to pull to within two points at the 4:39 mark. Toronto didn't make a field goal from that point through the remainder of the game.

Dwyane Wade added 22 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Rudy Gay had 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Raptors.

Pacers 93, Wizards 73

Washington's three-game winning streak ended at the hands of the NBA's best team. The 16-1 Pacers led 28-14 after a quarter of play and didn't let up in the second half after Washington's attempt at a rally in the second quarter.

George Hill converted a four-point play after the Wizards pulled to within four with fewer than five minutes remaining in the second. The Wizards never got within five the rest of the way and spent the majority of the second half trailing by more than 20 points.

Paul George had 23 points to lead all scorers. Lance Stephenson added seven points, 10 assists and 11 rebounds. Marcin Gortat led Washington with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Clippers 104, Kings 98

Jamal Crawford had 31 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds off the bench and DeAndre Jordan finished a block shy of a triple-double in Los Angeles' close win in Sacramento.

Blake Griffin made a pair of free throws to give Los Angeles a five-point lead with a little more than a minute left in regulation, but a three-pointer from Greyvis Vasquez and two free throws from Ben McLemore tied the game for Sacramento. Crawford missed a three-point attempt on the Clippers' final possession of regulation, sending the game into overtime.

Crawford and Griffin had four points apiece during the Clippers' game-ending 10-0 run in the extra period.

Griffin finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds. Jordan added 10 points and 15 rebounds to go with his nine blocks.

DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and nine rebounds to lead the Kings.

Rockets 114, Nets 95

Jason Kidd's first game after the spilled soda fiasco didn't go well. The Nets trailed by 16 points at the end of the first quarter and faced a 66-40 halftime deficit before finally showing signs of life in a meaningless fourth quarter.

Playing without Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett, the Nets' starters combined for only 23 points. Meanwhile, Chandler Parsons made up for James Harden's off night by scoring 21 points on 7-of-7 shooting. Harden finished with nine points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes.

Hawks 88, Mavericks 87

Atlanta finished the game on an 11-2 run to sneak past road-weary Dallas. The Hawks faced a 13-point deficit early in the fourth quarter before taking advantage of the Mavs' offensive woes. Dallas made only three field goals in the fourth quarter, including one over the final 7:05 of the game.

Jeff Teague scored nine of his game-high 25 points in the fourth. Al Horford added seven in the final stanza and finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Shawn Marion had 15 points and 12 boards and DeJuan Blair added 18 rebounds for the Mavericks.

Lakers 106, Pistons 102

The Lakers rallied from eight points down with 4:22 remaining to earn a road win over Detroit.

Los Angeles trailed by 10 after a miserable third quarter but bounced back to outscore the Pistons, 29-15, in the fourth. Shawne Williams led the charge with a trio of three-pointers and 11 points in the final quarter. He finished with 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench.

Wesley Johnson added 27 for the Lakers to lead all scorers. Greg Monroe and Brandon Jennings had 19 points apiece for the Pistons and Josh Smith pitched in 19 rebounds in the loss.

Bobcats 92, Bucks 76

Al Jefferson scored 23 points and added 12 rebounds to send Milwaukee to its 11th consecutive loss. Bismack Biyombo grabbed a season-high 14 boards and Gerald Henderson pitched in 19 points and some comic relief (only because the fan is okay):

Brandon Knight led the Bucks with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting. Knight's shooting performance was one of the very few produced by Milwaukee, which made only 33 percent of its field goal attempts.

After the game, Henderson was apologetic for his errant pass:

Pelicans 121, 76ers 105

New Orleans won for only the second time on the road behind former Sixer Jrue Holiday's 20-point, 13-assist performance.

The Pelicans raced out to a big lead in the second quarter thanks to a 15-2 run, but Philadelphia responded to cut New Orleans' 12-point lead to six at halftime. The Sixers ralled again in the third quarter, trimming a 14-point deficit to five, but New Orleans pulled away again in the fourth thanks in part to Philly's 12 missed on 21 free throw attempts.

Anthony Davis scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the Pelicans and Eric Gordon led all players with 26 points. Tony Wroten led Philadelphia with 24 points off the bench.

Celtics 103, Cavaliers 86

Jordan Crawford notched a triple-double, finishing with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, and Jeff Green scored a game-high 31 points to give Boston its third win in four games after snapping a six-game losing streak.

The Celtics jumped out to an 18-2 lead and held the Cavs to 10 points in the opening quarter. Boston held its double-digit lead the rest of the way and led by as many as 25 points in the second half.

Dion Waiters led Cleveland with 21 points and Anderson Varejao added 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Nuggets 97, Knicks 95

Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 27 points against his former team, but the Nuggets held on after nearly squandering a 10-point fourth-quarter lead to improve to 9-7.

Denver jumped out to a 10-point lead after the first quarter and after briefly struggling to start the second, continued their assault on New York's defense when Nate Robinson scored eight straight points off the bench to put Denver ahead by a dozen.

New York got key shots from J.R Smith, Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert inside two minutes in the fourth, but a game-tying attempt by Carmelo Anthony with two seconds left was blocked by Randy Foye.

Lawson led Denver with 22 points and eight assists and J.J. Hickson added 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Suns 112, Jazz 101

Six Suns players scored in double-figures, including Markieff Morris, who finished with a game-high 23 points off the bench in Phoenix's road win over Utah.

The Suns quickly found themselves in a 9-0 hole before recovering to get within two points of the Jazz at the end of the first quarter. Phoenix proceeded to outscore Utah by a combined 19 points in the second and third quarters to put the game away.

Phoenix improved to 9-7 while Utah fell to 2-15.
