ALL Records Broken in Spurs-Thunder 2OT Clash

With that being said, I think the Thunder bounce back with a statement win at home in this one.

The Spurs hit all 10 of their 3s in the first half and finished 16-for-19 from deep. Despite Westbrook and Paul George combining to shoot 2-of-8 in the frame, the rest of the team shot 13-of-18 (72.2 percent) to outscore the Spurs 37-25 and send the game to overtime when Westbrook found Grant for an alley-oop to tie it 130-130 with seconds remaining. Their three-point onslaught continued after halftime, as they hit four more to start 14-of-14 before finally misfiring.

LaMarcus dropped a career-high 56 points, 16 of which came from his flawless free-throw shooting on the night.

In addition to the 20-plus points and eight rebounds Aldridge can seemingly still give you in his sleep, he's actually improved as a defender in the back half of his career, anchoring a top-four defense previous year while helping this season's depleted Spurs bounce back from an ugly start on that end of the floor. San Antonio took a commanding 13-point lead into the fourth quarter after shooting 61 percent in the third. On a night when Popovich moved past Jerry Sloan to No. 3 on the NBA's career wins list, with 1,222, the Spurs were propelled by an aspect of the game their coach has often said he dislikes. First 50-point game for me.

Aldridge wanted the ball both during the game and after.

Westbrook became the second player to have a 24-point, 24-assist, 10-rebound game. He's still an All-Star caliber talent in the gauntlet that is the Western Conference, and he remains either the best or second-best player on a playoff team that's recently beaten the Thunder, Raptors, Celtics, Clippers, Nuggets, 76ers, Jazz, and Lakers on a 14-4 tear. Regardless - 24 assists and a very reasonable night shooting the ball.

Kyrie Irving scored 22 points while adding five rebounds and five assists in a 115-99 loss to the Heat. Like Westbrook, he struggled after the third quarter, shooting just 2-of-9 in the fourth quarter and both overtimes.

"This is one of those nights", he said.

Westbrook's dime bonanza was indeed spectacular, as he accounted for 55 points just off his assists - almost two-thirds of OKC's made shots while he took the floor.

Jerami. It's a shame the Thunder lost this game, because Jerami Grant had the game of his life.

"Just really happy for him, that was a heck of a game, 56". He also grabbed eight rebounds. They shot 56 percent on the evening and hit 84 percent of their three-point attempts. He played all of the first overtime and the tail end of the second - only checking in after Grant fouled out.

Head to head, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings, the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall but just 5-15 ATS in the last 20 meetings in Oklahoma City.
