Wizards Vs. Thunder: Wizards Head To Overtime Looking For First Road Win

The Washington Wizards were inches away from their first road win in the 2010-11 season. Missed shots from Andray Blatche and Nick Young with under 20 seconds on the clock could have given the Wizards the lead. But we'll need extra time in Oklahoma City, as the game is tied 103-103 at the end of regulation.

Young tied the game at 103 with 13.1 seconds left on a catch-and-shoot jumper, set up by a screen from Andray Blatche. With a chance to win it, Kevin Durant missed a three-pointer as time expired.

In just his third start of the season, Trevor Booker rewarded Coach Flip Saunders for giving him the opportunity. The rookie forward out of Clemson has 21 points and nine rebounds, both career highs.

But the Wizards had no answer for Russell Westbrook, and the Thunder guard clearly outshined John Wall down the stretch. Westbrook earned a triple-double with 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Westbrook had five straight points to put the Tunder on top with under 2:00 remaining in the game, including two hard drives past several Wizards players in the lane. Meanwhile, at the other end of the floor, Wall missed two free throws when he had the chance to put his team back in the lead.
