RUSSELL WESTBROOK BANKED 34 points for the Oklahoma Thunder last night but saved three of the best until the very last.

The OKC point guard came to his team’s rescue in the final moments of a frantic encounter with the Golden State warriors in Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant, the home side’s star man, missed a floater with 12 seconds left on the clock then teammate Serge Ibaka had a dash that bounced off the rim.

Thabo Sefolosha chased down a lost cause, scooped the ball back to Westbrook and let the guard do the rest.

This fan video [hat tip to Bleacher Report] captures the mayhem and magic perfectly:
