Westbrook registered 27 points, 17 rebounds and 15 assists.

The game was full of statistical nuggets that would be intriguing even if standing alone.

Thunder hold off 76ers in the season's first 3OT game.

The Philadelphia 76ers, meanwhile, can only hope they are beginning to regain theirs, as they host the Thunder on Friday night.

And in the third overtime period, it was Russell Westbrook that sparked the Thunder attack.

The Thunder had the game well in hand in the fourth quarter but hit a typical dry spell that almost cost the team the win.

"I was telling him, 'Go home, '" Westbrook said. Joel Embiid, who returned after missing Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Pelicans with back tightness, generated 28 points, 12 rebounds and a career-high eight assists to lead Philadelphia. Embiid appeared to be wincing with a stiff back through the overtimes and in the postgame locker room.

Ray Ray. The Thunder needed a super-sub and Raymond Felton was that man in Philly. With Steven Adams out of the game, Patterson was left to play center in the final two minutes.

"He told me to go home". Damian Lillard top-scored with 21 points. His teammate, Ben Simmons, came up just a rebound shy of recording a triple-double in his 51 minutes, recording 12 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds.

The Portland Trail Blazers survived a late fightback from the Orlando Magic to win 95-88. Then against the Thunder he caught fire and scored 14 on 4-of-7 (all three-pointers) for his 10th double-digit outing of the season.

OKC only turned the ball over 18 times - which is a lot, but not when you play seven quarters. LeBron James has been on a mission lately, helping the Cavs storm back into second place in the East. Kevin Love enters the game fresh off two straight double-doubles, so the short-handed Jazz have their work cut out for them.

This has happened a few times this season, and it happened at least three times against the Thunder.

Roberson missed a point-blank layup in the closing seconds and the game moved into a third overtime. The largest lead the Sixers had was five.
