George leads Thunder to another win against Sixers


Whenever the Sixers and Oklahoma City Thunder have gotten together over the past few years, there tends to be fireworks in addition to the inevitable Thunder win.

George sank a free throw to create the final margin and a desperation three-point try by Butler to win the game bounced off the back of the rim at the final buzzer.

Speaking to the media following Saturday's two-point loss, Embiid - who finished with 31 points - said: "I don't know why he [Westbrook] was mad, but he's always in his feelings".

But Westbrook instead stayed on the floor and Embiid flipped over him, knocking Westbrook hard to the floor under the basket.

George also contributed 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals for the Thunder.

Jimmy Butler had the chance to send the Sixers home with a win but his last-second shot attempt was off the mark.

Westbrook and Embiid's feud dates back to December 2017, when the latter waved goodbye to the Oklahoma City crowd after Steven Adams fouled out of that clash.

George top scored for the Thunder with 31 points, while superstar guard Russell Westbrook poured in 21 points, to go along with 10 rebounds and six assists. "Our defense has got to be ... if somebody's beat, we're gonna help 'em", George said from the bench on ESPN's "Wired" segment during the first half.

The Thunder led 92-81 early in the 4th quarter but the Sixers went on a 16-3 run to seize the lead 97-95, Redick scoring eight points to lead the spurt. Adams had 16 points and nine rebounds. Don't look now, but he's averaging 13 PPG on 50 percent three-point shooting over the last five games.
