Nuggets Vs. Thunder Final Score: Oklahoma City Prevails In Overtime, 124-118

In what was a closely contested game throughout, the Oklahoma City Thunder used a late fourth quarter rally to force overtime against the Denver Nuggets and ultimately capture a 124-118 victory.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both had enormous nights at the offensive end -- Durant scored 51 points on 16-28 shooting (unofficially), while Westbrook bounced back from a slow start to score 40. Serge Ibaka had a triple-double with 14 points, 15 boards and 11 blocks.

Despite those impressive efforts from Oklahoma City's stars, and despite the fact that Denver was shorthanded, the Nuggets were competitive all night and it looked like they would prevail when they had a two-possession lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter. But Durant and Westbrook were just too much on Sunday night.
