The Grizzlies and the Thunder face off again on Wednesday night at FedEx Forum. Oklahoma City ended up tying a franchise record with 16 threes in a game and won 110-92 in a solid team effort.

Westbrook and Anthony's availability - The Thunder have revealed that there remains no update for the status of both Westbrook and Anthony as they continue to recover from respective ankle injuries.

Oklahoma City is 26th in the league with 21.0 assists per game while Memphis is 27th with 20.9 assists per game.

Bench firepower - The Thunder finally got some much-needed production off their bench in the absence of Westbrook and Anthony.

And then the Thunder chose to make it rain from 3-point range. Los Angeles' turnover percentage was their largest advantage over Oklahoma City. Well, on Sunday night when the Thunder returned to their home arena, Thunder fans had their own chant showing their love to George.

The Spice Girls shot to fame in 1996 and were last seen together in 2012 at the premiere of West End musical Viva Forever!. Asked what their plans involved, she said: "There's something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for".


George enjoyed his trips to the free throw line most, when much of the chanting occurred. Abrines was scoreless in the largely-irrelevant second half, but no matter.

While posting his 10th game with at least 30 points, George also contributed eight assists and three steals.

Brandon Richard (Sole Collector) with a look at the "All-Star" colorway of the Nike PG2: "The "All-Star" Nike PG2 sports an Undefeated-like green and black upper featuring mesh and suede panels". Look for Westbrook to play, and join back up with Paul George. Westbrook has more help this season with Paul George adding 22.4 per game, and Carmelo Anthony with 17 per game. According to NBA Advanced Stats, George's 4.5 deflections per game are 0.6 more than anyone else. He played well, but Durant played better.

Kevin Bowen (1070 The Fan) discussed the Paul George trade with Pacers GM, Kevin Pritchard: "Sam Presti is a really good friend of mine". "We got shots, we worked on some defensive stuff, concepts".

The offensive glass should be a major advantage for Oklahoma City in this contest. It was amusing. I called Sam after that and said, 'That was to my buddies, that wasn't to you guys.' He laughed about it. "I think that spot, it could be different". The initial struggles of this year's Thunder team and their inconsistency throughout the season will prevent them from obtaining a high seed in the Western Conference, thus hindering their playoff chances, but they have shown all year that they can compete with the best of the best. Domas is like Hoosier basketball. The Cavaliers welcomed four new players to their roster via trades late last week and routed the Boston Celtics 121-99 on Sunday as five-point road underdogs.
