Oklahoma City won their last game against the Memphis Grizzlies, 110 - 92; Thunder win without Anthony, Westbrook. The Thunder had 21 assists on 34 made baskets without Westbrook or Carmelo Anthony, who missed their second consecutive game due to ankle sprains. "Their official status for Tuesday's game against the remodeled Cleveland Cavaliers is unknown, with an update expected after practice on Monday".

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been without their top scorer and defending MVP Russell Westbrook the last two games.

And then the Thunder decided to make it rain from 3-point range. "This time, without Westbrook and Anthony but with a different starting lineup and rotation pattern, Head Coach Billy Donovan helped orchestrate a 74-point first half behind a Thunder record-tying 12 made three-pointers over the opening 24 minutes".

Marc Gasol led the Grizzlies with 18 points. Memphis has failed to cover the spread in five of its last seven games when playing on three or more days of rest and is 1-6 at the betting window in its last seven games on Sunday.

The Grizzlies and the Thunder face off again on Wednesday night at FedEx Forum.

Thunder fans chanted the same several times Sunday, and he gave them more reasons to feel that way. James is continuously being linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, and the #Cleveland Cavaliers also look determined to keep him in The Land.

George enjoyed his trips to the free throw line most, when much of the chanting occurred. Alex Abrines had 16 points and went 4-of-7 from beyond the arc, while Patrick Patterson, Raymond Felton, and Jerami Grant all had 14 points apiece. Assuming Lebron James does not join as well, this Lakers team plus Paul George would struggle to make the playoffs in the West.

He looked on his way out a week ago, but the massive roster overhaul before the deadline might turn the table around for the Cavaliers.
