OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook had 32 points and 11 assists and James Harden matched his career high with 26 points as the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame an off night by NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant to beat the Phoenix Suns 122-118 in overtime on Sunday night.

Vince Carter led Phoenix with 29 points but missed two of three free throws with the chance to put the Suns ahead with 17.4 seconds left.

Steve Nash missed a potential tying 3-pointer after that, and the Thunder were able to close it out from the foul line.

Durant made a season-low three baskets on 14 attempts and scored 18 points, 11 of them on free throws.

Reserves Marcin Gortat and Mickael Pietrus each added 20 points for Phoenix.
