Unlike Terrence Ross and the Raptors, who had their three to force overtime overturned, Russell Westbrook and the Thunder were able to play an extra session after Beastbrook knocked down a three with 2.4 seconds left in regulation. Unfortunately for the Thunder, like the Raptors, they also went home with a L.
Jeff Teague scored eight of his 30 points in the OT session, ruining another monster stat line from Westbrook: 31 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds. The triple-double was his 5th of the season and his 3rd 30/15/10 game, which is the the most in a season over the last 30 NBA seasons.
“We just wasn’t ready tonight, starting with myself,” Westbrook said after the loss. “I was s****y tonight, honestly. I could’ve did a lot of things better, man. Got to come out and be ready to play every night. Tonight, I felt like I let my guys down all-around and got to be better.”
