Russell Westbrook, Thunder finish off Wizards, 105-103, in overtime The Wizards held a twelve-point lead at halftime.

Bradley Beal: 'I lost focus' on Westbrook's game-winning shot

Everything went wrong for the Wizards on the final play, and it started with Bradley Beal's defense on Russell Westbrook with 3.6 seconds left in the game.

Wizards vs. Thunder final score: Westbrook, Durant pull out 105-103 overtime win

Poor decision making late in the game do Washington over as they're unable to stave off Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in overtime. It took one slip-up by Bradley Beal -- one small misstep -- that led to Russell Westbrook's game winning layup in overtime on Kevin Durant's homecoming in the Phone Booth. With 3.6 seconds remaining, and the game tied at 103, the Thunder kept it simple. They broke out of their stacked alignment with Dion Waiters cutting to the corner, Russell Westbrook darting down court, and leaving Kevin Durant to curl off a Steven Adams down-screen. It's a sideline...

Isiah Thomas on Russell Westbrook: "He's the Mike Tyson of point guards"

Russell Westbrook continues to make headlines for both his play and his comments. Ernie Johnson gets him to smile, while Isiah Thomas gets to the heart of the matter. Russell Westbrook has made headlines over the past week as the Thunder have put together a strong 3-game winning streak. Those headlines have been in part because of his surging play (3 game averages of 18 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds, 3 steals) and part because of his tete-a-tete with local media reporter Berry Tramel (perhaps inspired by the great Rasheed Wallace). On a night where a win over the rebuilding Heat was...

Video: Strong defense and late Russell Westbrook surge help Thunder close out Wizards

It started with some great pick and roll defense from Perk and ended with fireworks from our very favorite point guard. So Friday night's game against the Wizards was a reminder of just how good the Thunder are. Washington came into the game on a hot streak and really proved their offensive might, finishing the game with 27 assists. Thus, it would have to be OKC's defense that pulled the Thunder through in the final minutes, along with a couple of critical plays from Russell Westbrook. We break the final minutes down for you in the video below. Check it out! I'm not entirely convinced that...

Video: Thunder give up 10 point swing, ignore Kevin Durant twice vs. Suns

With Westbrook ejected, KD had to take over. Watch how OKC almost blew a seven point lead in the final five minutes. Back on New Year's Eve, the Thunder were in a really intense clash with the Phoenix Suns at home. Russell Westbrook had been ejected at the end of the first half, leaving it to KD to lead his team in the final minutes. The Thunder were in good position to win the game, up 7 with 4:50 to go.  Unfortunately, a simplistic offense and bad defensive strategy would rob the Thunder of the easy victory, forcing OKC to battle it out in overtime. We break down the last 7 minutes of...

Video: Stale offense destroys Thunder at Mavericks

We break down the last 6 minutes of the fourth quarter, and things aren't looking good for Russell Westbrook.... Re-watching the final minutes of that Thunder-Mavericks game has to be an exercise in madness. It wasn't like the Mavs had a star that the Thunder couldn't stop, or like they were rolling out some revolutionary strategy that the Thunder couldn't match. The Thunder just got out-thought, out-hustled, and out-scored. At the center of it all is Russell Westbrook, whose decision-making and attitude at the end of games is really having a bad effect of the team. Meanwhile, Westbrook...
