After slugging it out through two rounds of overtime and the game at 147-146 it looked to be going the Jazz's way until George drove between two defenders and lofted the ball high.

The teams were well rested coming off an All-Star break that included an extra day off after many other teams resumed action Thursday. Obviously with Russell and Terrance (Ferguson) fouling out, we had a lot of guys absorb minutes.

But he saved his best moment for last, lifting a floater just over the outstretched arm of Rudy Gobert and in for the game-winning bucket, sealing a vital win for the Thunder and providing a thrilling finish to one of the best games of the week.

Reserve Derrick Rose scored 20 points as Minnesota overcame the absence of All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns to earn a victory over NY, which had its team-record home losing streak reach 18 games.

In the first overtime, Abdel Nader hit a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 139-137 lead in the final minute after Westbrook and Ferguson had fouled out. Gobert tipped in the tying basket with 33.7 seconds left, and George and Mitchell each missed jumpers in the closing seconds.

But after Mitchell missed a layup with 17 seconds remaining in the second overtime and teammate Joe Ingles clanged a desperation 3 off the backboard at the end of the shot clock following an offensive rebound, Thunder coach Billy Donovan elected not to call timeout after George corralled the rebound.

Former Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan had 23 points and eight assists in his first game in Toronto since his off-season trade to the Spurs.

Derek Favors hit his first 10 shots, finishing with 24 points and 11 rebounds for Utah.

Westbrook and George scored or assisted on 117 of the Thunder's 148 points, including 25 of 27 in the final 7:50 of the fourth quarter to force overtime. They trailed the Denver Nuggets by two games.

The Thunder (38-20) are 18 games over.500. Twice during the 2016-17 season Westbrook had flirted with breaking Chamberlain's mark but fell short with seven straight. He played the rest of the quarter without taking a shot or grabbing a rebound, picking up two fouls of his own.
