OKLAHOMA CITY — Paul Millsap took advantage of a chance to show off his rare versatility.
Atlanta’s 6-foot-8 forward shifted to center because Dwight Howard was out and scored a season-high 30 points, including the go-ahead 10-footer with 12.7 seconds left. He helped the Hawks overcome Russell Westbrook’s 46 points and beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 110-108 on Monday night.
“It took everything we had,” Millsap said. “It took everybody stepping up to get this win tonight.”
After Millsap’s late shot, Thunder center Steven Adams rebounded a missed 3-pointer by Westbrook and dunked it, but a review determined that the basket came just after time expired.
Westbrook entered the game as the NBA’s leading scorer with more than 30 points per game.
