"A big part of it tonight was our team's poise," Donavan said. "That was really important."

DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry fouled out with 22 points and 10 assists as the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors suffered just their sixth home loss of the season. Toronto is 29-6 at Air Canada Centre, the best home record in the NBA.

DeRozan, Serge Ibaka and Raptors coach Dwane Casey were all ejected in the final minute for complaining to the referees. DeRozan was incensed after not getting a call when he tried to drive on Brewer with 30 seconds left. DeRozan picked up two technicals in the following 22 seconds.

"He tried to smack me because I had a layup," a visibly frustrated DeRozan said. "I got fouled."

Having reviewed the video, Casey said the Raptors would file a formal complaint.

"Officials are going to miss calls but, at the juncture of the game when some of the calls were made, we've got to get it right around the league," Casey said. "Not just this game, the entire league."

Still, Casey took pains to point out that the Raptors, not the referees, were ultimately to blame.

"We made enough mistakes down the stretch also," Casey said. "We shot ourselves in the foot, missed easy shots, layups, free throws, turnovers."

DeRozan, however, didn't share Casey's view. Asked whether the officials had cost Toronto the game, DeRozan said, "It's obvious for us."

Delon Wright and C.J. Miles each scored 15 points, and Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas each had 10 for the Raptors.

The score was tied 119-119 when Lowry fouled out with 3:19 remaining. Westbrook immediately drove for a layup past Wright, Lowry's replacement.

After Wright missed a layup at the other end, Westbrook added another layup to cap a personal 10-point run and give Oklahoma City a 123-119 lead with 2:38 remaining.

Wright and DeRozan each made a pair of free throws to tie it at 123-123 with 1:41 left, although DeRozan missed a free throw on Anthony's technical foul.

Westbrook put the Thunder ahead to stay by driving for a layup with 39 seconds left, then banked home a jump shot with 11 seconds left, giving Oklahoma City a four-point cushion.

Depleted Warriors fall to Blazers despite Kevin Durant’s big night .
PORTLAND, Ore. — Perhaps as much as any team in NBA history, the Warriors are well-equipped to weather the absence of a two-time MVP. Not having Stephen Curry frees up bigger roles for three other All-Stars in their prime.But in snapping a seven-game winning streak with a 125-108 loss Friday night to the Trail Blazers at the Moda Center, Golden State made one thing clear: It needs contributions from its complementary pieces to win on the road against one of the Western Conference’s best.
