With Westbrook and Carmelo injured, Thunder get clobbered by Lakers

Sunday, 11 Feb, 2018

Without a true point guard, the Thunder's offense sputtered and didn't score in the second quarter until the 7:38 mark.

OKC, which is 31-24 and hold the fifth-place spot in the Western Conference, is committed to the three-man group of Russell Westbrook, George and Carmelo Anthony leading a championship charge.

Despite playing well with the Oklahoma City Thunder, many people still believe Paul George's future in the National Basketball Association is still up in the air, as there is still rumors stating he could switch to the Los Angeles Lakers over the summer.

Anthony finished with zero points on 0 of 4 shooting and an assist in six minutes. L.A. expects to meet Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye-the two players (along with a first-round pick) for which it sent Clarkson and Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers-in Texas in time for them to suit up.

The Oklahoma City forward is averaging 22 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.23 steals per game. That left Russell Westbrook as the only guard in the starting five. Both are L.A. -area natives. "We're ready for the big games", George told reporters after the win at Golden State. "Go back to those games where we lost to teams we should have beat, we wouldn't be in this situation, but the highlight of everything is consistency".

Oklahoma City Blue two-way players Daniel Hamilton and P.J.

"It's just different opportunities", Donovan said. "Can we sustain those really good habits, not only for 48 minutes, but from game, to game, to game".

Rumors have constantly connected the USC product to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Just trying to play the game the right way".

Steven Adams added 13 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma City, which shot just 35.6 percent from the field. For the second consecutive game, Kyle Kuzma scored 16 points off the bench, after failing to hit double digits in four of his previous five games. That said, he will definitely generate a lot of interest from teams around the league who will all make their best pitches to him to try and land his services.
