Los Angeles: Russell Westbrook posted his fourth successive triple-double to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 126-115 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Westbrook produced 35 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists to notch his ninth triple-double of the season and the 46th of his career.

Victor Oladipo added 25 points and Enes Kanter came off the bench to score 14 for the Thunder, who improved to 12-8.

Bradley Beal scored 31 points for the Wizards, whose coach Scott Brooks returned to Oklahoma City for the first time since he was sacked by the Thunder in April of 2015 after seven seasons at the helm.

Beal's three-pointer with 5:25 left in regulation put the Wizards up 97-90.

But the Thunder rallied to force overtime, Westbrook's three-pointer with 8.5 seconds left in regulation knotting the score at 105-105.

Westbrook scored 14 points in the extra period as the Thunder pulled away.
