Durant, Thunder beat Suns in OT

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant scored a season-high 44 points in his return from a six-game absence and the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame Russell Westbrook's first-half ejection to beat the Phoenix Suns 137-134 in overtime Wednesday night.

Coming back from a sprained right ankle, Durant was 13 of 23 from the field, made 6 of 11 3-pointers and 12 of 12 free throws. He also had 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Anthony Murrow broke a tie in overtime with a four-point play, and the Thunder held on when Phoenix's Markieff Morris missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left.

Eric Bledsoe led the Suns with 29, Morris had 25 and Goran Dragic 21.
