Thunder Survive Scare from Nuggets
Oklahoma City survived a scare from Denver pulling off a 95-94 win. The win gives OKC their fourth in the last five games.
Russell Westbrook was the only starter in double figures for the Thunder. He scored 38 points, grabbed nine boards and added six assists on 16 of 28 shooting. Alex Abrines was the only other Thunder player in double figures with 11.
Paul George struggled from the field going three of 13 with just eight points.
OKC struggled again to generate offense, especially in the third quarter. The Thunder scored just 18 points and yet again saw a big lead dwindle away.
OKC trailed by one late, but on their final offensive possession Russell Westbrook drew a foul with two seconds left which he converted into points. Gary Harris had a chance to win the game, but the Thunder managed to defend the final shot very well.
The Thunder hit .500 again at 15-15. They’ll try to get a winning record as the Jazz come to town on Wednesday.
