Russell Westbrook's game-winning shot, a view from courtside seats (Video)

The Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Golden State Warriors in a game that went to overtime. Overtime didn’t allow one team to pull away from the other. The Thunder were losing late in the period by two points.

After an in bounds pass, Kevin Durant dumped it off to Serge Ibaka on a nifty bounce pass and he tried to hit a game-tying shot, but he missed. Thabo Sefolosha got the rebound as it was going out-of-bounds and tipped it into point guard Russell Westbrook who made an athletic catch.

He then gets a window for an open look as the clock is winding down and puts up a three-point shot. He drains the shot as the clock runs out and the Thunder win.

“When he tells people about this one, he doesn’t have to exaggerate it because there’s no bigger fish story than what he did tonight,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said, via ESPN.

This fan who was sitting courtside in the corner that Westbrook made the shot videotaped the whole thing and uploaded it to YouTube. It is an incredible view and vantage point. Thankfully, he held his phone horizontally and not vertically.
