Russell Westbrook scored the last of his 38 points on three free throws with 6.4 seconds left, lifting the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 105-104 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals.

The Thunder, down 13 with four minutes remaining, outscored the Clippers 8-0 in the last 49 seconds to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Kevin Durant added 27 points for Oklahoma City despite struggling to find his shot, including five in a row during a frantic series near the end of the game punctuated by an out-of-bounds replay that went the Thunder's way, leading to Westbrook's go-ahead foul shots.

Chris Paul lost the ball on the Clippers' final possession as he drove into the lane.
