Westbrook stars as Thunder see off 76ers

Westbrook stars as Thunder see off 76ers

The Thunder shooting guard was in the middle of both All-Defensive Team and Defensive Player of the Year discussions.

Carmelo Anthony became the 21st player in National Basketball Association history to reach the 25,000 career-point mark by scoring 21 points Saturday, January 27, in Oklahoma City's 121-108 win over Detroit. "And he's found a way to be, offensively, a really effective player for us".

"There's no way you can catch up to that.There's nobody who can stay in front of him or keep up with him", George said.

His three-pointer cut the lead to one in the fourth quarter as Billy Donovan attempted to steal a few minutes with Westbrook, Anthony and George on the bench, but Westbrook returned with a statement dunk before guiding his team to victory.

Oklahoma City led by 25 points (91-66) when it happened. One option is to go bigger, moving back to small forward - a position he has played for just 157 minutes all season, per - and using either or at power forward.

The victory guarantees the Raptors will have the second-best record in the Eastern Conference through February 4, meaning Dwane Casey will coach Team LeBron in the All-Star Game. "He's a huge part of our team and why we win".

How much will the Thunder miss Roberson's defense?

Steven Adams notched a double-double (20 points and 13 rebounds), while Carmelo Anthony added 16 points in support, but Sunday belonged to George and Westbrook.

Roberson played 39 games this season, averaging 5.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists. In addition, according to ESPN Stats & Information, the Thunder are averaging 96.8 points per 100 possessions with Roberson on the court and 107.7 points without him.

NEW ORLEANS - Blake Griffin had 27 points and 12 rebounds, and made a crushing 3-pointer with 43 seconds left, leading Los Angeles past New Orleans in the Pelicans' first game since a season-ending injury to All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

Detroit is looking to snap their 6 game losing streak after losing to the Utah Jazz, 98 - 95; Gobert: 15 points, 8 rebounds, 4 blocks.

The beef between the reigning MVP and Embiid began back in December when Westbrook led the Thunder to a 119-117 victory over the Sixers.
