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.

The Spurs led by 12 points heading to the fourth quarter, but Los Angeles forged a 17-4 run to take a 102-101 advantage with 7:11 to play. San Antonio's Keita Bates-Diop layup with 32.2 seconds left ultimately sent the game into the extra period.

San Antonio went 1-for-9 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Malik Monk added 17 points, and Austin Reaves had 10 for the Lakers, who have won two straight after losing their first two outings of the season. James suffered his injury in the second quarter of Los Angeles' win over Memphis on Sunday.

Jakob Poeltl led the Spurs with a career-high 27 points and added 14 rebounds. Dejounte Murray added 21 points, 12 rebounds, and a career-high 15 assists for his fifth career triple-double; Lonnie Walker IV had 21 points; Vassell scored 19; and Keldon Johnson tallied 11 points San Antonio, which has lost three straight games.

San Antonio led 29-27 at the end of the first quarter despite 10 points in the period from Davis.

The Lakers jumped back in front on a 3-pointer by Kent Bazemore at the 7:38 mark of the second quarter and led by as many as six points over the last half of the period until Walker IV canned a jumper from beyond the arc with 1.7 seconds remaining to push the Spurs to a 62-61 lead at the break.

Lakers: Anthony Davis 35 (17 REB, 4 BLK), Russell Westbrook 33 (10 REB, 8 AST, 3 STL), Malik Monk 17, Austin Reaves 10, Rajon Rondo 8.

Spurs: Jakob Poeltl 27 (14 REB), Dejounte Murray 21 (12 REB, 15 AST), Lonnie Walker IV 21 (6 AST), Devin Vassell 19 (7 REB).
