Paul George to be game-time decision Tuesday vs. Timberwolves

George has missed the last three games and the only other time he missed a game this season (December 28), he returned to score 36 points in a two-point loss to the Mavericks.

Minnesota went on to win the game by a score of 131-120 with Towns chipping in 41 points, but Westbrook still walked away with the last laugh as his comments certainly reign true.

He did it again on Tuesday night at Target Center against the Thunder.

Oklahoma City has lost six of eight. Delon Wright added 25 off the bench for Memphis, while CJ McCollum led the Trail Blazers with 27 points. Andrew Wiggins is averaging 35 points in two games against OKC this season, both narrow road victoriess.

George was back on the court after missing three games with a right shoulder injury. He scored 25 points but was 8 of 25 from the field, including 4 for 14 from 3-point range. The Thunder had erased a 10-point deficit before Rose's late outburst put the Wolves back on top.

In another big development, the A+ category, worth Rs 7 crore and which earlier had seven players, has been trimmed down to three. Cheteshwar Pujara, despite his stupendous show in Australia, remains in the "A" category since he plays only the Test format.

December 23rd, OKC Thunder hosted Minnesota: 31 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal while shooting 11 of 24 from the field and 3 of 6 from 3-point land. The Wolves will need to force him into taking those shots in this one, rather than the alternative of letting him get downhill and potentially get Towns and the rest of the Wolves' frontcourt into foul trouble.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook has a track record of wearing his emotions on his sleeve both on and off the court.

In early January, Wiggins dropped 40 on the Thunder, making 16 of his 18 free throw attempts and also notching 10 rebounds and four assists.

The Thunder play at Portland Thursday night at 9:30 pm.
