from the 3-point line. Even still they were able to keep up, close the deficit, tie the game, even take the lead a few times.

Russell Westbrook had one of the most impressive Triple doubles of his career posting 24 points (11-22), 13 rebounds, 24 assists, two steals, and just three turnovers. George followed it up with 30 of his own. 19 and 7 for Steven Adams who came back in the game after being injured. 21 from Ferguson including 7-10 from the 3-point line.
