The basketball Gods couldn’t have scripted anything better than Russell Westrbook’s three-pointer in OT to give the Oklahoma City Thunder a one point victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday.
The final score in the trilling match was 113-112 and was back and fourth the entire evening. The contest could easily be the game of the year and one of the best shots in Westbrook’s young career.
The few NBA players who weren’t in action last night took to Twitter immediately after the shot. Others were talking about it today, including Warriors guard Stephen Curry who was visibility upset after the loss.

Last night after the game he questioned whether or not Westbrook’s foot was on the three-point line.
Westbrook finished with 43 points and seven assists in the game, he also had help from Kevin Durant who added 25 points and 13 boards.
After his stellar game, any doubt that Westbrook came back from injury too early should be put to rest.
The Thunder next play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in OKC.
