Westbrook accepts blame for late turnover in loss to Celtics

Put the drama aside and Celtics’ Sunday win a reminder they’re one of the NBA’s hottest teams

Put the drama aside and Celtics’ Sunday win a reminder they’re one of the NBA’s hottest teams

Boston has won four straight since falling short against Golden State on January 26 and nine of its last 10 games overall.

Westbrook recorded his sixth triple-double in a row with 22 points, 16 assists and 12 rebounds, while Paul George continued his high-scoring form, dropping 37 points, four rebounds and four assists. That means he's now second in the league with four games where he's scored 30-plus points and logged 10-plus assists. The Thunder entered Saturday third in the Western Conference: they were three games behind the Warriors and Nuggets for the top spot in the conference and three games behind Denver for the Northwest Division lead. The Celtics have had a nice run as of late as well, but they have also played the bottom half of the East during most of their wins. With today's win, it sweeps the season series with OKC after winning in Oklahoma City back in October. He was joined in double-figures by Westbrook (22), Steven Adams (16), Dennis Schroder (16), Grant (15), and Terrance Ferguson (11). The Thunder are playing their best ball of the season during this seven-game winning streak and are winning by an average of 9.2 points in their last five games. He suffered a setback and will be out indefinitely. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71.2 percent from the free throw line. The public betting for this game now has 59 percent going on Oklahoma City on the road.

He was viewed as Rajon Rondo's replacement at the time, expected to lead a new era of Celtics basketball with Brad Stevens at the helm.

Before last year's Super Bowl, Stevens wore a hoodie after the Celtics game in honor of Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Boston led by five after the opening quarter and by nine at the half: the lead didn't drop below five in the second half as they went on to the win.

Statistically, Smart is shooting a respectable 36.7 percent from 3-point range, which is a career-best mark if he can maintain it for the rest of the season. Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in the win.

Friday marked our third consecutive win and eighth in nine tries, as we downed the Knicks 113-99 behind a strong game from Gordon Hayward. Defensively, OKC is giving up 109.3 points per game. And in two games this month, he's 5-for-11 (45.4 percent) on 3's.

Thunder: George has made at least two 3-pointers in 31 straight games. Jayson Tatum is second on the team with 16.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest. Marcus Morris added 19 points and seven rebounds, Al Horford had 17 points and nine rebounds and Marcus Smart chipped in 18 points and seven assists.

Daniel Theis: With no Aron Baynes (foot), Theis was sure to play more minutes. The Celtics are 14 in field goal percentage as they shoot 46.2 percent from the floor as a team.
