During the Thunder's three-game losing streak, Schroder was in an 11-of-32 shooting slump and his defense wasn't close to the brand Terrance Ferguson and Paul George unleashed on Washington's Bradley Beal or San Antonio's DeMar DeRozan.

The Spurs' 154 points were the most they scored since putting 161 past the Denver Nuggets in 1990, while Oklahoma's 147 was just short of the 148 they scored in January a year ago against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Thunder wound up defeating the Spurs by a final score of 122-112 to improve to 26-16 on the season. The Thunder are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a loss and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games playing on one days rest.

The bucket was two of 18 fast-break points for Oklahoma City after halftime.

SAN ANTONIO- The Spurs started hotter than ever from 3-point range Thursday night.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored a career-high 56 points and the Spurs overcame Russell Westbrook's triple-double to outlast the Oklahoma City Thunder 154-147 in double-overtime.

LaMarcus dropped a career-high 56 points, 16 of which came from his ideal free-throw shooting on the night.

At one point in the first quarter, Marco Belinelli hit three straight.

South Africa vs Pakistan, 3rd Test
Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan were the pick of the Pakistan bowlers in the second innings as they bagged three wickets apiece. His total of ten dismissals in the match was one better than the record previously shared by Rashid Latif and Kamran Akmal.

Westbrook had only three turnovers in 50 minutes.

Two nights after he limped off the court in San Antonio, Steven Adams was back to business in Oklahoma City as the Thunder ended a three-game National Basketball Association losing streak.

Aldridge scored eight consecutive points with Adams out, but consecutive 3-pointers by Terrance Ferguson tied it again at 126.

With the Spurs up 130-128, Belinelli had the ball stolen at midcourt, leading to a tying layup by Grant with 5.6 seconds left.

On the bench with four fouls, Westbrook was charged up after Schroder put his head down, drove and scored a finger roll just before the third-quarter buzzer.

White finished the game with 23 points, five rebounds and eight assists.
