Steven Adams didn’t play and Paul George suffered an injury that ended his night early, but Russell Westbrook put the Thunder on his back and led them to a much-needed victory over the Hawks last night, 119-107.
With 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists, the league’s reigning MVP recorded his 100th career triple-double.
On Friday against the Clippers, the Thunder will begin a stretch of 11 straight games playing teams that are currently above the .500 mark on the season. In fact, 11 of the team’s final 13 games are against winning teams.
Despite the tough upcoming schedule, Basketball-Reference lists the probability of the Thunder making the playoffs at 89.5 percent.
