Three-Pointers and Westbrook Triple Double Lead Thunder Over Kings

Three-Pointers and Westbrook Triple Double Lead Thunder Over Kings”

The Thunder eventually overcame a poor third quarter to run down the Kings 106-101 in California.

Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams was forced to exit Tuesday's game against Sacramento with a hip contusion.

The Thunder - now the 2nd-ranked team in the Northwest Division with a 40-29 overall record - have won three straight games and seven of their last ten.

The news comes 24 hours after the 25-year-old injured his ankle against the San Antonio Spurs - an injury that had him in doubt for the clash with the Kings.

He's made 64 appearances with the Thunder this season, averaging 13.7 points (career-high) on 63.5 percent shooting from the field, 8.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist. George added six rebounds, five assists and was four-of-nine from deep, while recent addition Corey Brewer continued his excellent form as a starter with 16 points (4/8 FG) and six boards.

In a low scoring first half, the Thunder led 46-40 at halftime, and maintained the lead in the second half, but couldn't pull away from the Kings, who have been eliminated from playoff contention.

OKC, who visit the Atlanta Hawks next on Wednesday (NZT), improve to fourth in a tight Western Conference playoff race.
