Thunder tie franchise record for 3-pointers in blowout of Grizzlies

Thunder tie franchise record for 3-pointers in blowout of Grizzlies

Charged by George's fast start, the Thunder pushed ahead by 11 points early before Julius Randle led the Lakers' charge.

While posting his 10th game with at least 30 points, George also contributed eight assists and three steals. "And that's why I say it was a great team effort".

Magic Johnson may have recently got himself into trouble for talking about players of interest, but that isn't going to stop the Los Angeles Lakers fans from trying to do some recruit for their team themselves.

Against the Lakers in Los Angeles, fans chanted "We want Paul!" at George during the second half, with him saying after the game he didn't hear the chants.

The Thunder had just fallen by 25 to a losing team on a night when they were missing Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook, both of whom suffered ankle sprains during the squad's previous game. That put an added offensive burden on George against L.A., and though he'd scored 29 points, the offense had lacked flow.

While George agreed that professionally playing for a California franchise was "a dream come true", he said reports about his desires to sign with the Lakers have been "overstated".

"I didn't know how long it would take, but the energy before the game was already much better".

The theory definitely makes sense, as Kylie and Travis' butterfly obsession is pretty apparent. " Kylie is so happy to be a mom". Her pal Jordyn Woods was seen accompanying her as the two were seen getting out of Kylie's black SUV.

"Tonight, I thought I got my rhythm and stayed in my rhythm and played my game, and again, I thought we all - second game with us being together - I thought there was a little more chemistry", he said.

"With as hard as it was to put the ball in the basket, we kept trying to battle and fight defensively and did some good things", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. OKC hadn't practiced on the day in between its games at the Warriors and Lakers last week. The five-time All-Star player added that the OKC was a "great organization" but he made it clear that it did not mean he had already chose to stay with the Thunder beyond their current contract that ends ahead of the offseason.

The Thunder bolted out of the gate with an 8-0 run to start the second half that included 3-pointers by George and Felton.

The Thunder made 16 of 37 3-pointers.

Abrines scored 16 points and made 4 of 7 3-pointers. Against the Grizzlies, he had eight assists and two turnovers while playing starting at his usual small forward spot and playing some point guard with the second unit.

The Thunder will be better if and when Abrines, Patterson, Grant, Huestis and whomever else makes shots, too.
