Russell Westbrook lifts Washington Wizards to wild win over Brooklyn Nets, 149-146

RUSSELL Westbrook hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 4.3 seconds remaining as the host Washington Wizards posted an unlikely 149-146 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.

Washington’s only lead was briefly in the second quarter before the frenetic final seconds that saw them overcome a five-point deficit in the final 12.3 seconds. Bradley Beal’s 3-pointer from the top of the key with 8.1 seconds left got Washington within 146-144.

Washington had a chance to tie or get the lead when Garrison Matthews intercepted an inbounds pass by Joe Harris intended for Kevin Durant with 6.8 seconds left. He quickly dished to Westbrook, who sank a 3-pointer over Kyrie Irving with 4.3 seconds.

After Brooklyn used two timeouts, the Nets could not score when Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot’s point-blank layup rolled around the rim and out with seventh-tenths of a second remaining. After officials ruled there was still time remaining, Beal hit two free throws for the final margin.

Westbrook scored 15 of his season-high 41 points in the fourth quarter as Washington snapped a four-game losing streak and he also added 10 rebounds and eight assists. Beal added 22 of his 37 as Washington beat the Nets in the final seconds for the second time this season after overcoming a nine-point deficit in the final 4:54.

Durant scored 37 and Harris added a career-high 32 for the Nets, who saw a four-game winning streak stopped and played without James Harden (left thigh contusion). Irving added 26 and Jeff Green contributed a season-best 23 for Brooklyn, which shot 56.8% and led by 18 late in the first quarter. — Reuters
