ORLANDO, FLA.

Russell Westbrook had 57 points — the most in a triple-double in NBA history — 13 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 114-106 overtime win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

Westbrook, a leading MVP candidate, led the Thunder to their largest comeback in team history, rallying Oklahoma City from a 21-point deficit in the second half as he recorded his 38th triple-double of the season.

And like the 13-point outburst in the final three minutes against Dallas on Monday night for the win, Westbrook was again the catalyst as he hit big shots in the fourth quarter, including the tying 3-pointer with 7.1 seconds remaining to force the extra period.

Warriors 110, Spurs 98

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 29 points, Klay Thompson had 23 and the Golden State Warriors rallied from a 22-point deficit in the opening quarter to beat the San Antonio Spurs for their ninth straight win.

Golden State extended its lead over San Antonio to 3 1/2 games for the league’s best record, beating the Spurs for the first time in three meetings this season.

Heat 105, Knicks 88

NEW YORK (AP) — Goran Dragic had 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and the Miami Heat breezed past the New York Knicks.

Reserve James Johnson added 18 points for the Heat. Josh Richardson finished with 17 points as Miami (37- 38) improved to 26-8 since an 11-30 start.

Hornets 110, Raptors 106

TORONTO (AP) — Marco Belinelli scored 21 points, Kemba Walker had 19 and the Charlotte Hornets beat the Toronto Raptors.

Hawks 99, 76ers 92

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dwight Howard had 22 points and 20 rebounds to lead the Atlanta Hawks over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Hawks have won two straight following a seven-game losing streak that stunted their push in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Atlanta is still in the fight for a fifth seed with Milwaukee, Indiana and Miami.

Pelicans 121, Mavericks 118

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis had 30 points and 13 rebounds, DeMarcus Cousins added 29 points and 16 rebounds in his return from a two-game absence, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Dallas Mavericks.

Grizzlies 110, Pacers 97

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Conley matched his career high with seven 3- pointers on his way to 36 points, helping the Memphis Grizzlies top the Indiana Pacers.

Vince Carter had 21 points and eight rebounds, and Zach Randolph finished with 17 points as Memphis snapped a four-game losing streak.

Clippers 133, Wizards 124

LOS ANGELES (AP) — J.J. Redick scored a season-high 31 points and hit seven 3-pointers, helping the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Washington Wizards. Redick returned from a sprained right ankle after missing the Clippers’ collapse in a one-point loss to Sacramento last Sunday. His 3-pointers tied a season best.

John Wall scored 41 points and Bradley Beal added 27 for the Wizards, who a night earlier clinched the franchise’s first division title in 38 years with a comeback win over the Lakers.

Jazz 112, Kings 82

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gordon Hayward scored 20 points, Rodney Hood had 18 and the Utah Jazz beat the Sacramento Kings.

Utah jumped out to an early 20-point lead, and then squandered most of it in the second quarter. But it put together a solid second half to secure its third win in four games.
