OKC Thunder beat the Heat – Topic: Thunder

The OKC Thunder won, yet again, and yet again by a comfortable margin. That’s seven in a row, and Thunder fans are feeling pretty good. Topic: Thunder with the recap.

Well seven in a row feels pretty good. But even more than that, what feels great for OKC Thunder fans, is the way they’re winning.

They’ve killed the bad teams, and even handling the good teams. Tonight’s team, the Miami Heat, are somewhere in the middle – not good, but dangerous. Especially at home. Even so, OKC handled their business.

Paul George shot the ball lights out and was 10-16 from three, setting a new Thunder record while finishing the night with 43 points on 14-23 from the field.

Russ came out and played an efficient game, getting an easy, breezy 14 points 14 assists and 12 rebounds on 60 percent shooting (while shooting 40 percent from the FT line tonight). Dennis Schroder was another monster, breaking his mold by shooting amazingly in the first half, scoring 24 points on 90 percent shooting.

Meanwhile, Steven Adams played his normal big-man grinder game – doing the little things such as opening up the lane so Russ could explode for a dunk down the middle.

Paul George 23 shots, Russell Westbrook 10. That won’t be normal, but we’re watching growth happen, and we’re watching a team who likes each other.

Tonight was about teamwork. Tonight was about handling business. And most of all, tonight was about Paul George is awesome, and Russell Westbrook is changing for the better.
