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".
