Russell Westbrook scored nine of his career-high 45 points in the second overtime as host Oklahoma City withstood Kevin Love's 51 points to beat Minnesota 149-140 for the 11th consecutive time Friday.

Kevin Durant added 40 points and a season-high 17 rebounds as the Thunder won back-to-back games for the first time since March 7.

Love set a franchise record and a career high with the 51 points and added 14 rebounds.

Timberwolves point guard J.J. Barea also turned in a spectacular effort, recording a triple-double with 25 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds.

The Thunder erased a five-point deficit in the final 46 seconds of the first overtime, getting a tying 3-pointer from Durant with 10.1 seconds left.

Durant seemingly had won the game in regulation when he buried a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left in regulation, only to see Love drilled a tying shot from behind the arc with one second left to force overtime.

James Harden added 25 points for the Thunder. Anthony Tolliver scored 23 for the Timberwolves, who went 2-5 on their seven-game road trip.
