“It was truly a blessing. Thabo did a great job saving the ball, I didn’t wanna tie the game, I was trying to win, I’m just thankful it went in.”
— Russell Westbrook
Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook had an old fashion western shootout last night. The shootout took place during one of the best games of the year and the winner was decided by a final quick draw 3 point shot at the buzzer. Unlike Westbrook’s 3 point almost game winner a couple of weeks ago against Golden State…
this amazing shot didn’t leave any opportunities for the opposing team to win the game.
In a losing effort, Steph Curry had 32 points (13-26 fg) 11 rebounds and 5 assists while Harrison Barnes had a season high 26 points. For the Thunder, Durant had 25 and 15 and the hero of the game, Westbrook, produced 34 points 7 assists and 5 steals to go with his game winner.
“Did we really think this game wasn’t gonna end this way? These teams have trouble guarding each other. Russell’s shot was remarkable. There’s no bigger fish story than what he did tonight. You love this game for these types of moments.”
–Thunder coach Scott Brooks
