Thunder 114, Nets 112: Oklahoma City Rallies Past Brooklyn

Steven Adams got his but Paul George was the hero for OKC in Brooklyn

Steven Adams got his but Paul George was the hero for OKC in Brooklyn

Paul George took over against the Brooklyn Nets, inspiring the Oklahoma City Thunder to their biggest comeback victory ever.

The Brooklyn Nets could not hold off the fourth-quarter charge of Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 114-112 loss at Barclays Center Wednesday night.

George finished the game with 47 points, 15 rebounds and four assists, a night full of highlights including this alley-oop from Russell Westbrook.

George outscored the Nets by himself in the fourth quarter and his 25 points were the most by any Thunder player in any quarter since the franchise moved to Oklahoma City in the 2008-09 season.

Brooklyn desperately needs a win not just to end the seven-game slide, but also to regain some confidence playing at home, where they are 3-9 this season and have lost seven straight games.

"It felt good", George was quoted as saying by ESPN. "I had the hot hand, I knew I had the hot hand".

Russell Westbrook had his 108th career triple-double to snap a tie with former Nets star and coach Jason Kidd for third in National Basketball Association history, finishing with 21 points, 17 assists and 15 rebounds. "I just got into a zone, got into a comfortable place".

Somehow, it was his first career go-ahead shot in the final 10 seconds of a game, and when Bleacher Report recognized that, PG had to come back on his Instagram and send a message to all the haters. Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell each had 17 points and Jarrett Allen had 15.

The All-Star point guard now trails Oscar Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138) on the all-time list. "He can get hot".

It can not be denied that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is one of the best in the league right now.

OKC, who are 16-3 since their 0-4 start, continue their road trip with a visit to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday (NZT).
