After laying a big fat egg on Monday night in Memphis the Thunder came out last night at The Peake and beat Indiana 107-99 behind a 24-0 run in the 3rd quarter...that's the best in the NBA this season. OKC was down at halftime but that run put the Thunder in front to stay. Russell Westbrook with another triple double 17points, 11rebounds and 12assists...Paul George with 31points but it was Jerami Grant and Steven Adams who really punished the Pacers...Kid Kiwi with 25points and 12 rebounds and Grant with 19points, 3 blocks and 5 threes. You'll hear what Billy Donovan said about those two after the game in today's report.
Here's one of Grant's blocks last night...he almost gets shoved out of the way by Thaddeus Young but he comes right back in to get the swat.
On the offensive end Grant scored 19 points and hit 5 threes. In the lockerroom last night he credited Russell Westbrook for being able to get him the ball.
The Thunder trailed at halftime but quickly turned things around in the 3rd quarter. Terrance Ferguson talked about what made the difference.
Now let's see if the Thunder can keep it up. The Denver Nuggets are in here tomorrow night. OKC remains 7th in the West...one game back of Utah and the Clippers for 5th and one game ahead of the Spurs.
