The five-time All-Star who's in the midst of a career season with the Thunder was greeted less-than warmly when OKC visited the Lakers on Wednesday night.

George was Oklahoma City's engine, dropping a game-high 37 points thanks to his maestro-like pick-and-roll game, which allowed him to shoot 13-of-18 on two-pointers, overcoming a 2-of-11 clip from deep.

George, who picked up three fouls in first 3:12 of first quarter, scored 20 points in the second half.

The Lakers were already playing their fourth game without LeBron James, who leads the team in scoring, rebounding and assists.

Some Lakers fans chanted "We don't need you!" at George in the fourth quarter while he sewed up the Thunder's win.

Notes Led by Caldwell-Pope, the Lakers' bench outscored the Thunder's, 48-27.

"He's working on his body, his game, himself all the time", Lakers coach Luke Walton told reporters.

The Lakers initially announced Kuzma was questionable to return in the second half due to a lower back contusion, then ruled him out in the fourth quarter.

Kuzma finished the night with just 4 points on 1-for-4 shooting, to go along with 1 rebound, 1 assist and 3 steals in 16 minutes. Westbrook still has 11 triple-doubles this season and eight in his last 15 games.

George didn't get to play his customary full first quarter.

Things had not been going well for George overall in the first quarter.

George and the Thunder appeared to draw motivation from the booing.

Paul George's shot swished, and Russell Westbrook turned, leaned back, and strummed an air guitar. The veteran point guard won't be back from hand surgery for a month.
