Kings top Thunder 131-120, ruin Westbrook's season debut - Oct 22, 2018

Iman
Shumpert
Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) was in no mood to talk after his season debut. Iman Shumpert (6'5''-G-90, college: Georgia Tech) scored 26 points and the Sacramento Kings beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 131-120 on Sunday night to spoil Westbrook's return. Westbrook missed the preseason and the first two regular-season games after having a procedure to deal with inflammation in his right knee. He had 32 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in 35 minutes after averaging a triple-double the past two seasons. Westbrook sat at his locker for more than 20 minutes before getting in the shower and finally addressed the media about an hour after the game ended. "I was OK," he said. "It wasn't my best night, but I've got however many more games left to play, so I'm not worried. It was my first time. I just hate losing. Honestly, I don't really care to talk about how I played." Thunder coach Billy Donovan liked what he saw from Westbrook, who made 13 of 23 field goals and was his usual unstoppable self when attacking the rim. "I thought Russell really played well," Donovan said. "I give him a lot of credit. He worked really hard the last five to six weeks to try to get himself ready. For him to come back, being out as long as he was and play like he did - I thought we were faster, I thought we got downhill more, I thought the ball was moving." De'Aaron Fox (6'4''-G-97, college: Kentucky) scored 22 points and Buddy Hield added 17 for the Kings. They shot 54.9 percent to earn their first win of the season. Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said it was a big win for his team, given the buildup for Oklahoma City. "They come back from the West Coast, they get their guy back and opening night, and a lot going on," Joerger said. "I've got a lot of respect for them. We got the ball up and down the floor and we played fast." Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.) scored 29 points and Steven Adams (7'0''-C/F-93, college: Pittsburgh) added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Thunder. Sacramento led 68-56 at halftime behind 54.5 percent shooting. Westbrook had 15 points, nine rebounds and six assists at the break. The Kings pushed their lead to 17 in the third quarter, but the Thunder rallied. A driving dunk by rookie Hamidou Diallo (6'6''-F/G-98, college: Kentucky) cut Sacramento's lead to 10 and helped bring the crowd back into the game. Oklahoma City closed the quarter strong, but Sacramento still led 97-90 entering the fourth. The Thunder cut the deficit to five in the fourth quarter, but Sacramento held on. Hield hit a 3-pointer with just over 2 minutes remaining to slow Oklahoma City's momentum.
