OKLAHOMA CITY -- Tired wasnt an option for Russell Westbrook on Friday night.The explosive point guard had 51 points in a triple-double and scored the winning points in the Oklahoma City Thunders 113-110 overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns. He played just over 45 minutes and never slowed down.Youve got to want to win, he said. Very simple. When you want to win, you dont think about being tired. To me, being tired is a mind thing. Its in your mind. Youve got to go out there and compete at a high level and leave it on the floor.According to the Thunder, it was the first 50-point triple-double since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had one in 1975. Westbrook finished with 13 rebounds and 10 assists and took a career-high 44 shots to claim his 38th career triple-double.It was the franchises first game without Kevin Durant on the roster since it moved to Oklahoma City in 2008.

In Oklahoma Citys home opener, Westbrook reminded the fans that theres still star power in town.Westbrook made a layup to put the Thunder up a point with 7.6 seconds remaining. Phoenixs Devin Booker missed a layup and Westbrook was fouled. Westbrook scored his 50th and 51st points at the free-throw line with 3.5 seconds remaining. Booker missed a 3-pointer as time expired.Westbrook was 17 of 44 from the field, 2 of 10 from 3-point range and made 15 of 20 free throws. He scored 39 points in the second half and overtime.Thats what he does, Booker said. He is an aggressive scorer. One of the best players in the league. We knew that coming in here.T.J. Warren had a career-high 30 points for the Suns.Westbrook tied it at 59 on a layup and free throw early in the third, but the Suns responded with a 12-0 run. Westbrook kept the Thunder in it with 23 points in the third quarter on 7-for- 12 shooting, but the Suns led 83-77 heading into the fourth.Westbrook returned from a rest with 8:50 remaining and the Thunder trailing 89-81. Four minutes later, his driving layup gave the Oklahoma City a 97-96 lead. Westbrook then found Roberson open, and Robersons 3-pointer pushed Oklahoma Citys lead to 102-98 with 2:39 to play.After Phoenix rallied to tie it at 102, Westbrook missed several chances to put the Thunder ahead late in regulation, including a missed 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left.Late in overtime, Westbrook didnt hesitate on his way to the hoop.I should have attacked the first time and be able to get to the paint and try to finish, he said.---TIP-INSSuns: Coach Earl Watson played for the Thunder during the 2008-09 season. ... The Suns led 31-13 in the first quarter and 40-25 at the end of the period. ... Phoenix shot 69.6 percent in the first quarter and 19.2 percent in the second.Thunder: Domantas Sabonis, a rookie, started in his first-ever regular-season home game. He finished with eight points on 4 for 6 shooting. ... Backup point guard Cameron Payne sat out with a fractured right foot. ... Westbrook was issued a technical in the third quarter, but it was taken away upon review. ... Victor Oladipo scored 21 points.STAT LINESWestbrooks averages through two games are 41.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists. His 23 points in the third quarter matched Durants Thunder record for a quarter.DEFENSIVE SWITCHThe Suns led by 18 in the first quarter, but Oklahoma City held Phoenix to 5-for-26 shooting in the second quarter to cut it to 53-49 at halftime.Just defending, Westbrook said. We know that we came out sluggish, especially on the defensive end. We locked down.QUOTE OF THE NIGHTWatson, on defending Westbrook: For us, Westbrook shot 44 times, 20 free throws. Were living with that. Well live with that many shots. Our team played great.UP NEXTSuns: Sunday, they travel to Golden State to face Durants new team.Thunder: Sunday, they host the Lakers and new coach Luke Walton.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter (at)CliffBruntAP Maillot Jan Vertonghen .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court.

Maillot Diable Rouge Dries Mertens . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. PHILADELPHIA -- Jeremy Hellickson kept his mindset simple.Hellickson pitched a three-hitter and A.J. Ellis backed him with a three-run double to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the fading Miami Marlins 8-0 Saturday night.Keep the ball down, get ahead and let the defense work, Hellickson said.Sounds easy. Hellickson certainly made it look that way.That was fun. Hes been outstanding all year, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Hes a great guy, a good worker and very focused.Miami, which fell six games back for the NLs second wild card, trailed by seven runs in the second inning and lost for the 14th time in 20 games.Hellickson (12-9) struck out five, walked none and hit two batters in his second big league shutout and third complete game. He threw 75 of 106 pitches for strikes.It wasnt something I was thinking about, he said of the shutout. It was nice to go out there and get a chance to finish it.The 2011 AL Rookie of the Year with Tampa Bay, Hellickson pitched a four-hit shutout against Baltimore that May 13 and another four-hitter against the Orioles that Sept. 4.Its been a long time, he said.Miamis only hits were singles by Dee Gordon leading off the game and Martin Prado in the fourth, and Derek Dietrichs double in the seventh.Tommy Joseph also homered in a game that took 2 hours, 42 minutes, nearly half the 4:43 of the Philadelphias 4-3, 13-inning win Friday night.Jose Urena (4-7) lasted just two innings and allowed seven runs and seven hits in his worst outing since moving to the starting rotation on July 19. Urena pitched 8 2/3 innings in last Sundays 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.He had trouble keeping the ball down, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. They were waiting for his fastball.Philadelphia took a 5-0 lead in the first on Ellis two-out, bases-clearing double just inside the bag at third and RBI doubles by Odubel Herrera and Maikkel Franco.ddddddddddddThat was a giant hit, Mackanin said of Ellis double.Joseph hit a two-run homer in the second off Urena, giving the rookie first baseman 20 for the season.You have to make the right pitches and learn from games like this, Urena said. This kind of game, it happens.STREAKING PITCHERSPhillies pitchers have four complete games and have allowed three runs or fewer in 14 consecutive games, the teams longest stretch since going 17 in a row in 2000.JOSEPHS TURNAROUNDJoseph became the third Phillies rookie since 1972 to hit at least 20 homers, joining Ryan Howard (22 homers in 2005) and Scott Rolen (21 in 1997).Its been quite a turnaround for Joseph, a converted catcher who struggled with concussions in the minor leagues. He was left off the Phillies 40-man roster following last season and his goal entering spring training was to get a September call-up.At this time last year, a lot of people were giving up on my future, he said. Now with 20 homers in The Show, its pretty special. It means a lot to me.PRADO HITS PHILLIESPrado went 1 for 1 and is batting .306 in his career against the Phillies, ranking third among active players hitting against Philadelphia.
