Anthony Davis racked up 35 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, Russell Westbrook added 33 points and 10 rebounds, and the pair hit the final two baskets of the game to lift the visiting Los Angeles Lakers to a 125-121 overtime win over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday.

Playing without LeBron James, who was ruled out hours before the game with right ankle soreness, the Lakers pulled out to a six-point lead in the extra period before San Antonio rallied to tie the game at 121. 

Davis then grabbed an offensive rebound and scored, the Spurs' Devin Vassell missed a 3-point shot, and Westbrook slammed home a dunk on the ensuing possession to finish off San Antonio.
