For the second game in a row, the Thunder hit 16 three-pointers.

Russell Westbrook picked up his 100th career triple double in the win with 32 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the way in the victory, but his star cohort Paul George was forced out of action in the third quarter after an awkward landing, forcing him to leave for the locker room from which he did not return.

Westbrook had 32 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists, becoming the fourth player in National Basketball Association history to have at least 100 career triple doubles, joining Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, and Jason Kidd. Jerami Grant came off the bench and added 20 points, five rebounds, two steals, two blocks in the win.

Westbrook scored seven points, while Grant knocked down a 3 and converted a three-point play - both off assists by Westbrook.


The Thunder are now 1.5 games behind the Portland Trail Blazers for third place in the Western Conference. But they hung tough against the Thunder.

Prince led the Hawks with 25 points.

The Hawks played with energy and pizzazz in the first half, bolting out to a 38 to 23 scoring advantage in the 2 quarter, which was a major reason for their halftime lead. Anthony struggled early, but he always seems to go into autopilot against Atlanta for some reason - delivering spectacular highlight treys with distinct regularity - and finished with 21 points on 7 of 15 shooting (6 of 11 from deep).

The Hawks host Charlotte on Thursday.
