Oklahoma 123 Nets 120 (3OT): The Nets' triple overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder was yet another heartbreak for the ragtag underdog team. The Nets came close to winning many times, only to be undone by bad decisions from Brooke Lopez (prompting comments like this) and Stephen Graham, who fouled the Thunder's Jeff Green during a second overtime three-pointer. Green made his three foul shots, sending the game into the third overtime.
Though Nets' starting point guard Devin Harris was out with a knee injury, the Thunder were without Kevin Durant. The teams traded leads in the final minutes of regulation, and when the Nets were down three in the final seconds, Anthony Morrow managed to make a three-pointer to send the game into overtime.
The Thunder's Russell Westbrook helped seal the team's win, hitting all of his team's 13 points in the third overtime and stole a ball from Jordan Farmar in the final minute. Farmar said, "It's a tough one to swallow. We're all employees. We've got to do a job and do is what's asked. Hindsight's 20-20. That was a good play. They just made a great defensive play."
