George lifts Thunder past 76ers 117-115

Paul George converted a four-point play with 5.1 seconds left, sending Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder to a wild 117-115 victory over Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

Paul George may have slipped a little in the MVP conversation the last couple weeks, but that was a big time, big time shot to punctuate a huge fourth quarter. That would have been a devastating loss for OKC and he saved them from it.

There was a pretty obvious theme for the first three quarters: When Embiid is on the floor, the Sixers are better than the Thunder. When he's not, the Thunder are better, and by a good amount.

OKC's bench has become a simmering issue as of late, and with Billy Donovan trying a few new rotational tweaks, it still let a double-digit lead slip to finish out the first quarter in Philly. The primary issue: Dennis Schroder has been slumping a little the last couple weeks.

Clear intent by Billy Donovan to have Steven Adams in when Joel Embiid is. Quick sub on Nerlens Noel when Embiid came back in.

Russell Westbrook, who has struggled at the line this season, next-questioned every question about knocking down three big free throws with 2.9 seconds left to force overtime.

Russell Westbrook has battled the free throw line all season, but after getting fouled down three with 2.9 seconds on a 3, he calmly drilled all three. Kyle Kuzma got a look to win it but missed long and to overtime it goes.

The Thunder are having probably their best pure shooting game of the season, which would suggest they've built a big lead, but the Lakers are hitting them right back with some of their own.

Dennis Schroder got hit in the quad, but is good to return in the second half, per the Thunder.
