NEWARK, N.J. — Russell Westbrook capped a 38-point, 15-rebound, nine-assist performance by scoring all of Oklahoma City's 13 points in the third overtime, and the Thunder survived the absence of an injured Kevin Durant with a 123-120 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday night.
Jeff Green added a career-high 37 points as the Thunder outlasted New Jersey in a game in which the Nets tied the game at the end of regulation on a running 26-foot 3-pointer by Anthony Morrow, then blew leads of six points in the first overtime and three points with 4.6 seconds to go in the second when Stephen Graham fouled Green on a 3-point attempt.
Brook Lopez led New Jersey with 28 points and 11 rebounds. Jordan Farmar added a career-high 28 points and nine assists starting for injured point guard Devin Harris. Morrow had 25 points.
