  • Thunder Determined to Keep Up the Momentum – INTEGRIS Game Day Report OKC vs. PHI        By Nick Gallo | Thunder Basketball Writer

"Obviously triple-overtime there, kind of picked up that and leading into this game after a little talk after Game 1, leading into this game, I was looking forward to it", Westbrook said of the intensity. Although his recovery may have cleverly coined him the nickname "The Process", it has also forced the Sixers to be rather cautious with their franchise player moving forward. The jerseys and other The District themed gear are available for sale at the Capital One Arena Team Store and online here.

So in theory, Oklahoma City should improve offensively to make up some of the defensive hit. (Which Embiid, naturally, posted about on social media.) And again when spark plug finished a tip dunk off a missed free throw over Westbrook's back.

Westbrook not only got dunked on, he nearly got knocked into the stands. Lou Williams added 22 points, and DeAndre Jordan had 12 points and 19 rebounds for the visiting Clippers. Tim Frazier came off the bench and dished out 14 assists along with three blocks.

Griffin reached a total of 27 points across the night, aided by Lou Williams who added 22.

Back-to-back road losses to the Dallas Mavericks (98-75 on January 21) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (121-112 on January 25) flashes the spotlight on Wall. Westbrook's 3-pointer with just under three minutes to play put the Thunder up seven, and he followed with a jumper to make it a nine-point game with two minutes left.

Andre Roberson underwent surgery to fix a ruptured left patellar tendon and will miss the remainder of the season, the OKC Thunder announced Sunday.




Terrance Ferguson got the start for the Thunder, but he had a quiet night. The Thunder are 7-0 when George scores at least 30 points and 11-4 when he scores at least 25.

Though Oklahoma City has another wing stopper in, Roberson's presence allowed the Thunder to take advantage of George's ability to freelance defensively while guarding weaker opponents.

"It's s-. It's real s-", Adams said after the Thunder's 121-108 win over the Pistons. Entering the week, the Raptors are 5-5 in their last 10 games and will host the Trail Blazers the day after playing in Washington. The last time the two teams met, both players engaged in a war of words after the contest. Wall and Beal vs. Lowry and DeRozan is always a must-see matchup, especially now that all four are All-Stars this season.

The Wizards before the win over Atlanta had lost four out of their last five games.

This rivalry dates all the way back to December 15 when the two teams battled in a triple-overtime thrilled that ended with Russell Westbrook telling Joel Embiid to "go home".
