>>Pacers Edge OKC in Overtime
 
Jeff Teague scored eight of his 30 points in overtime, harassing Russell Westbrook defensively all night and lifting the short-handed Pacers to a 115-111 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
 
It was Indiana's first road victory of the season and it came without star forward Paul George, who missed his second straight game with a sore left ankle.
Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook had his fifth triple-double of the season - as many as the rest of the NBA combined - with 31 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds, but went 13 of 34 from the field.
 
Teague matched his season scoring high and added nine assists and six steals. He hit two free throws with 4.6 seconds left in regulation to put the Pacers up three.
 
Westbrook hit a 3-pointer with 2.4 seconds left to tie it for the Thunder and Glenn Robinson III missed a well-guarded 10-footer at the buzzer, forcing overtime.
 
Teague's 3-pointer in the opening minute of overtime put the Pacers ahead for good. With 1:09 left, he converted a three-point play to make it 113-107, and he hit two free throws with 19.1 seconds left to put Indiana up 115-111. 
 
Six Pacers scored in double figures and two of them had double-doubles - Robinson with 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Thaddeus Young with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Myles Turner just missed another with 15 points and nine rebounds.
 
Enes Kanter added 16 points for the Thunder.
 
The Pacers host Golden State on the second night of a back-to-back featuring last season's Western Conference finalists.
