Kevin Durant scored 33 points, including a tying 3 late in regulation and the go-ahead foul shots in overtime that sent the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Washington Wizards 106-105 on Sunday night.

John Wall missed a driving layup attempt at the buzzer for Washington, which was seeking its third straight win. Bradley Beal scored a career-high 34 points for the Wizards.

Oklahoma City trailed 92-82 with 3:26 left with the fourth quarter, but went on a 14-4 run. Durant capped the burst with a straightaway 3-pointer with 13.6 seconds left.

Beal missed a running 12-footer at the buzzer while being closely guarded by Serge Ibaka.

In overtime, Durant blocked a shot by Wall and streaked toward the other basket. He made both free throws for a 106-105 lead with 40.7 seconds left.
