Westbrook poured in 50 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, dished out 10 assists and won it with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that eliminated the Nuggets from the playoff race. He scored the Thunder’s final 13 points, including the game-winning bucket following a timeout with 2.9 seconds left.

Golf: Sergio Garcia is no longer in the conversation of outstanding golfers to never win a major. Garcia won the Masters in comeback fashion, beating Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff. The 37-year-old Spaniard trailed Rose by two shots with six holes remaining before ending his two decades of close calls and major meltdowns in major tournaments. Garcia and Rose began the final round tied for the lead before carding 3-under 69s to finish at minus-9. Charl Schwartzel closed with his second straight 68 to finish third at 6 under, one shot ahead of Matt Kuchar and second-round co-leader Thomas Pieters. Paul Casey’s 4-under total was one better than Rory McIlroy and Kevin Chappell.
NASCAR: Jimmie Johnson has earned his first win of the Monster Energy season, going from the back of the field to Victory Lane at Texas Motor Speedway. The seven-time Cup champion charged under Joey Logano with 16 laps to go and claimed his 81st career victory. Johnson had to start at the back of the 40-car field because of a tire change after a spin in qualifying. It was Johnson’s seventh victory at Texas, six coming in the last 10 races there. Points leader Kyle Larson finished second for the fourth time this season. Logano, polesitter Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. rounded out the top five.
