Russell Westbrook collected 30 points and nine assists while joining Durant, Kevin Martin and Thabo Sefolosha with 3-pointers in overtime for Oklahoma City, which put up 18 points in the five-minute period to bounce back from Friday's loss in Boston.

Thaddeus Young recorded 29 points and 15 rebounds while Evan Turner scored 26 points for the 76ers, who have dropped back-to-back games.

The Thunder led by as many as 13 points in the third quarter and took an 85-79 lead into the fourth after Durant closed the third with a dunk at the buzzer. Oklahoma City managed only one field goal in the first 5:05 of the fourth as Philadelphia climbed back into the game.

Young’s dunk with 5:01 left knotted it at 94-94, but Westbrook and Durant made back-to-back field goals. Lavoy Allen hit two free throws and blocked a shot before Young tied it up again with 1:36 remaining.
