Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Postgame Grades and Analysis
Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

The Oklahoma City Thunder endured a rough shooting night from their dynamic duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and survived with a 117-111 overtime win over the visiting Los Angeles Clippers.

A trio of Oklahoma City reserves (Nick Collison, Hasheem Thabeet and Kevin Martin), though, combined for 38 points that helped the Thunder hang around long enough for Durant and Westbrook to shoot themselves back into the game.

The Clippers, meanwhile, battled despite their own superstar, Chris Paul, struggling. Paul hit just two of his 14 field-goal attempts en route to a forgettable nine-point effort.

The Clippers' 16 offensive rebounds bought them extra possessions and helped them overcome a 10-point halftime deficit, but it wasn't enough to overcome L.A.'s continued struggles at the free-throw line (24-of-33). While they forced 19 Thunder turnovers, they committed 15 of their own.

The win improves the Thunder to 9-3, while the Clippers fall to 8-3.
