Thunder And 76ers Go 3OT, Rockets Rise Over Spurs

Russell Westbrook

Embiid irked the Oklahoma City Thunder veteran early in the game when the young 76ers centre waved goodbye toward the Philadelphia crowd once Westbrook's teammate Steven Adams fouled out.

Westbrook's drive and pinpoint pass to Andre Roberson for the winning basket late in the third overtime lifted the Oklahoma City Thunder to a thrilling, triple-overtime 119-117 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. There is no predetermined timetable to complete the protocol, as each injury and player is different and recovery time can vary in each case.

Adams, who is averaging 13.7 points and 8.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game this season, will be re-evaluated Sunday.

Embiid then called out Westbrook after the game, saying the reigning MVP benefits from taking so many shots.
