Embiid gets last word after verbal altercation with Westbrook

  • No more excuses, Sixers need to start showing more than potential on the biggest stages

Paul George recorded 12 points, five assists, three steals and two rebounds in his return to Indiana. Nikola Jokic returned from a seven-game absence and had 13 points and 11 rebounds. led the with 29 points and had 28 points and 12 rebounds. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 16 rebounds for the Bucks.

It was also their 17th consecutive win over the Sixers.

For the season, Westbrook, who a year ago became the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1961-62 to average a triple-double, owns norms of 22.6 points, 9.9 assists and 9.4 rebounds per game.

Carmelo will want to be at full strength for that game because it is his first game back in NY. Few players play harder than Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, who struggled through a bad shooting night on Wednesday but still managed to record a triple-double and lead his team to a 100-95 win at Indiana.

Friday night's game between the Thunder and 76ers had everything.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Felton and George pushed the Thunder's advantage to 90-81 with 7:16 left. They were able to get a big-time win in Philadelphia on Friday night after they beat the Sixers in a triple-overtime thriller. The shooting of both Bayless and Redick was necessary because Robert Covington couldn't seem to get the ball to fall.

Portland 95, at Orlando 88: had 21 points for the.

Back tightness and soreness had kept Embiid out of two games this season and he was questionable because of the pain heading into the matchup against OKC. LeBron James has been on a mission lately, helping the Cavs storm back into second place in the East. Kevin Love enters the game fresh off two straight double-doubles, so the short-handed Jazz have their work cut out for them. The way he grabbed his back looked like reflex, the way you immediately touch something that stings or hurts. Including this-Joel Embiid would play for almost 50 minutes-achy back and all. If not, let's hope the big guy doesn't try to play through something while the season is still early. The Thunder will have to be more balance going into future games.
