*It was not Green's goal to set a career-high in points (37) with Durant out with a sprained left knee.
â€œNot at all,â€ Green said. â€œI'm not a guy who's going to force the issue and try to do more than I know what I can do. Shots started to fall for me and my teammates continued to find me.â€
*Sefolosha (55), Green (54) and James Harden (42) all had career highs in minutes played.
*Westbrook became the sixth player and only the second guard (Vince Carter) in the last 20 years to record 35-plus points, 15-plus rebounds and nine-plus assists in a game.
*Westbrook repeatedly drew â€œoohsâ€ and â€œaahsâ€ from the crowd of 13,108 inside the Prudential Center with his lighting-quick drives, crossover dribbles, pull-up jumpers and a highlight putback dunk in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, point guard Jordan Farmar filled in admirably for the injured Devin Harris. Although Farmar had a career-high 28 points, nine assists and two steals, fans left cursing his name for his poor decision-making in the final sequence of the third overtime that allowed time to expire with the Nets attempting a shot.
*At the outset of overtime, the Thunder didn't score its first point until 2:50 remained in the first extra session. From that point forward, the Thunder outscored the Nets, 30-22.
*OKC led 71-62 at the end of three quarters. The Thunder, which has several fourth-quarter swoons this season, misfired at 37.5 percent and had four turnovers during the final period of regulation. This fade was as much about the Nets scorching the nets at 57.9 percent, going 4 of 5 from 3-point range and 5 for 5 from the free-throw line.
