Russell Westbrook hit a last-second, game-winning layup in overtime to lift the Thunder to a 105-103 road victory over the Wizards on Tuesday.

A highly entertaining game ended in dramatic fashion when Westbrook managed to free himself from the defense on an inbounds play. The Thunder set up on the left side with 3.6 seconds remaining and the score tied at 103.  After initially running into the backcourt, apparently as a decoy, Westbrook darted back toward the three-point line to receive a pass from Anthony Morrow. He kept moving after the catch, splitting two defenders as he approached the paint and then slithered past Paul Pierce for a lefty chip shot. 

The shot kissed in off the glass with 0.8 seconds remaining and John Wall was unable to connect on the other end to seal Oklahoma City's two-point victory.

Nene led the Wizards with a team-high 24 points, four rebounds and three assists. Wall added 18 points, 13 assists, six rebounds and four steals.

Oklahoma City improved to 22-20. Washington fell to 29-14.
