WASHINGTON (AP) – Russell Westbrook drove for the winning layup with 0.8 seconds left in overtime, and Kevin Durant greeted the latest KD2DC craze with 34 points Wednesday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder won their fourth straight with a 105-103 victory over the Washington Wizards.
Durant and Westbrook scored all 13 of the Thunder’s points in the extra period, including Durant’s throw-down dunk over Marcin Gortat and Westbrook’s surprisingly uncontested layup off of an inbounds play after Oklahoma City had called timeout with 3.6 seconds remaining.
Westbrook finished with 32 points and led a third-quarter comeback that made up a 12-point halftime deficit. Durant, the D.C. native whose 2016 free agency is much-anticipated in his hometown, added seven rebounds and broke out of a career-worst 0-for-14 slump from 3-point range by making four from long range after halftime.
Nene scored 24 points for the Wizards, including nine of Washington’s 11 points in overtime. John Wall had 28 points and 13 assists.
