Russell
Westbrook
The Thunder finally washed away a winless start by thrashing the Devin Booker-less Suns in Oklahoma City Sunday night. The Thunder used a balanced scoring attack, with six players in double figures and were led by both Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) and Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.) who tore up the Suns defense with 23 points each. Russ also finished with nine rebounds and seven assists. This was a game that the Thunder were firmly in control of for much of the game as they rushed to a ten point first quarter lead. With Steven Adams battling left calf soreness, Nerlens Noel was called upon for his first start in a Thunder uniform. He responded by easily having the best game of his season, posting a double-double by the beginning of the third quarter and finishing with 20 points and 15 rebounds, the first 20-point, 15 board game of his career. He was aggressive from the start and made Suns center Deandre Ayton look like a rookie as he battled defensively and scored in a variety of ways. While he did leave the game briefly in the third after taking an apparent hit to the eye, he returned shortly thereafter and played well in the fourth. While no one expects Adams injury to be anything serious, if Noel can perform at a high level like he did Sunday, the Thunder have a formidable frontcourt duo and will be a terror inside. A surprising first quarter shooting outburst also helped the Thunder as Patrick Patterson (6'9''-F-89, college: Kentucky) had his best game in a Thunder uniform, going for eight points in the frame, finishing with 17 points. This momentum was carried into the second quarter as the Thunder sealed a franchise record for steals in a half, grabbing 12 and wreaking havoc on both ends. When the dust cleared in the first the Thunder were up 14 with no signs of slowing down. It was more of the same in the second half as the Thunder cruised and finally put the ball in the hole at a decently high clip shooting 50.6 percent for the game. While the three-point shooting still wasn't great (7-of-24, 29.2 percent), it is definitely a promising sign that multiple players were able to knock down a deep-ball and that they shot their highest percentage of the season Sunday. The Thunder received contributions from nearly everyone in this game. Jerami Grant (6'8''-F-94, college: Syracuse) posted a season-high 14 points, Dennis Schroeder (5'11''-PG-93) had 12 points and seven assists and Terrance Ferguson (6'7''-SG-97), in another start, finally got above the five-point threshold, going 3-for-6 from the field and finishing with six points. While this win is going to be overshadowed by the Suns being without their best player, the Thunder needed to assert some dominance over the injury-laden team and they did. This game was in hand early and the Thunder finally played a cohesive, effective game. It was the best offensive and defensive performance (Forced 22 Suns turnovers) of the season from the guys in Blue and White and hopefully this trend continues Tuesday night against the Clippers.
