NBA: Pacers tone down OKC Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Jeff Teague scored eight of his 30 points in overtime as the Indiana Pacers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-111 on Sunday night for their first road victory of the season.

Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook had his fifth triple-double of the season – as many as the rest of the NBA combined – with 31 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds but went 13 of 34 from the field.

Teague matched his season scoring high and added nine assists and six steals. He hit two free throws with 4.6 seconds left in regulation to put the Pacers up three.

Westbrook hit a 3-pointer with 2.4 seconds left to tie it for the Thunder and Glenn Robinson III missed a well-guarded 10-footer at the buzzer, forcing overtime. Teague’s 3-pointer in the first minute of overtime put Indiana ahead for good.

Carmelo Anthony matched his season high with 31 points as New York beat Atlanta for its fourth straight home victory.

Dwight Howard had 18 points and 18 rebounds but point guard Dennis Schroder missed all eight shots as the Hawks dropped their second straight following a six-game winning streak.

C.J. McCollum scored 33 points and Evan Turner had 19 as Portland beat Brooklyn.
