Westbrook is averaging 27.4 points, 11.4 rebounds and 10.5 assists in the last eight games, though Oklahoma City is just 4-4 in those contests. It was the second straight win for the Nets on their three-game road trip, with only another Mexico City game remaining Saturday against the Heat.

Just before that go-ahead basket, Dinwiddie picked up his fifth foul with 7:37 left in the third quarter, but the teams then traded the lead back and forth in an entertaining display that had a sellout crowd of 20,562 oohing and aahing.

That's when Brooklyn coughed up a 9-0 run, with Raymond Felton's 3-pointer in the waning seconds of the period sinking them into a 79-71 hole. But Acy's three trimmed the Nets' deficit to five points heading to the fourth quarter.
