Oklahoma City Thunder shine in OT as Philadelphia 76ers' road woes continue

The Oklahoma City Thunder added to the Philadelphia 76ers' road woes today, securing a 127-119 win overtime win at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The 76ers have now lost five of their games on the road this season and five of their past seven games.

With scores tied at 107 apiece at the end of regulation, the Thunder found an extra gear, outscoring the 76ers 20-12 on 5-of-7 shooting and 8-of-8 from the free-throw line.

Danilo Gallinari led the way with 28 points and seven rebounds, while Chris Paul added 27 points, eight rebounds and five assists. The pair took over down the stretch, combining for 11 of OKC's 20 points in OT, with Paul icing the game with this dagger from mid-range.

After missing their last game with a sore right knee, Joel Embiid was a force, pouring in 31 points and 12 rebounds, knocking down 4-of-8 attempts from the three-point line.

Josh Richardson added 28 points and Tobias Harris added 21 points on 3-of-4 from beyond the arc, while Ben Simmons recorded 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.

Simmons was strong on the defensive end guarding Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but the 76ers will want him to be more aggressive on the offensive end. He only took eight shots on the night and committed five turnovers.

Against a gigantic 76ers lineup, the Thunder were relentless attacking the basket as they forced the 76ers' defence at every turn. The frustration bubbled in the extra period, with Harris and Simmons both fouling out down the stretch.

OKC shot 35-of-41 at the free-throw line, compared to the 76ers 15-22.

The 76ers will continue their road trip in Cleveland against the Cavaliers on Monday as they look to avoid a three-game losing streak.
