Nov 25, 2012 (Menafn - The Philadelphia Inquirer - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Olympians Kevin Durant (37 points) and Russell Westbrook (30) proved to be too much for the 76ers Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center, combining for 67 points as the Thunder defeated the Sixers, 116-109, in overtime.

Durant's three was the first of four in a row made by the Thunder, who led 112-104 after Thabo Sefolosha hit another one with less than a minute left in overtime.
